BFF - quilting friends

The BFF quilt is done and gifted last Saturday evening. My friend Marilyn retired at least a year ago and it took us this long to make her a quilt to celebrate. It's a little late but it was a labor of love.

5 of us got together this winter to plan a quilt or wall hanging for her.  When the latest 100 Blocks magazine from Quiltmaker came out, we saw the BFF block and knew it was just perfect. We picked the border fabric first and then decided on colors to go along with that. So we each made a block (paper pieced) plus the extra one to represent Marilyn. We've each signed our block and then Sylvia quilted and bound it.  We met at a favorite restaurant and surprised Marilyn with this. What a fun evening!


  1. What a sweet Best Friend Forever block for you to all do for her, it turned out great!

  2. I bet she was touched and delighted with this quilt. Love the photo of the BFF and the quilt.
