Wildflower Friendship Quilt



 It's always nice to record a finish and especially nice when the quilt has a special meaning. This was a friendship exchange started a couple of years ago. The focus fabric (Wildflower line) was purchased and each one of 12 ladies received 1 yard. We had to use that focus in our block. We each made 13 blocks, so that when exchanged we had a block from everyone. The 13th set of blocks we put together into a quilt that was donated locally to a scholarship fund raffle. 

Each of the 12 blocks is beautiful and I have photos taken of each friend holding up her block so I can always go back to remember who made which one.  The yellow border is from the same fabric line and is just the yellow version of the aqua focus fabric.  I really love the results - so happy and perfect for summer.

    I love the idea of making an extra block for a donation quilt - clever.
