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!!!!!

What a beautiful idea Nina, I love this. I have always wanted to quilt, but it seems a bit over whelming. Maybe starting with friends is the way to go! :)

I'm with Kim. I love quilts but wouldn't know where to start! This one is so beautiful and no doubt will mean a lot to you all for a lifetime.

Thank you so much! Yes, this quilt does mean a lot to me! It's priceless! So thank you! Hopefully, right after the holidays I can come up with a pattern that the beginner can make. I have a few ideas, and I'm so excited just thinking about it.

Thank you! The pattern came from a magazine. I've been trying to find it and if I do I'll share it! But you can always start with four friends and just make it a lot smaller. If you sew you can quilt! Thanks again!!!
