Friendship Quilt

Friendship Quilt

Here’s the friendship quilt we made for my friend Michele. She was diagnosed with cancer in May and we put the word out! Blocks came in from all over the country. Some people had sewing days to make blocks for non-sewers. Donna and I put it together a couple of weeks ago, Margaret E. got it all quilted and Anita McSorley put the binding on! We wanted to get it done before her second round of chemo.

And here’s a photo of the whole quilt! Ironically, Michele sewed the two big blocks that make up the top row so I would have samples to demonstrate on when I taught for the Allure of Paper Foundation Piecing Cruise. It was a blast to make. The hardest part was not letting it slip so it would be a surprise! I even finagled an invitation to her July 4th barbecue — very clever! She didn’t suspect a thing!

Here’s a close-up photo of the top row. This quilt will be a great comfort to Michele as she continues treatment.
