Friendship Quilt

Eight of us ladies from church gathered together and decided to take part in making this friendship quilt.  I am so happy to have made this quilt!!
Each one of us was given the hand fabric and one background fabric, enough fabric to make 8 hand blocks. We all signed our blocks we made and gave each friend one of those blocks while keeping one for ourselves. Then each one of us  finished our own quilt, adding our own embellishments to the quilt. The blocks and borders where all made according to how each person wanted their quilt to look. 
The process of making a friendship quilt is such a blessing! I have a piece of my friends with me.  One of these precious friends who participated in making a block is no longer with us, but I have a part of her in this quilt.  I will always cherish that. 

There are so many great friendship quilt patterns available.  Gather your friends and start quilting!!!!!

Peak Hour

My most recent quilt made for my grandson, Benjamin, using a Riley Blake Design (On the Go)  and  Peak Hour fabric!  I changed it up a bit, only because I didn't purchase enough fabric!  I still love it, just the same!!!

Trip Around the World

I just happened to be on a family vacation, when I needed to purchase a needle to work on my cross-stitching project, I was planning on completing.  Instead,  I decided to sign up for a quilting class.  The owner of the shop allowed me use her machine and other sewing materials to make this beautiful quilt, while the boys were fishing! I made this quilt, Trip Around the World quilt pattern, many years ago, but, I'm still proud of it!
