Friendship Star Quilt

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

 Hello!  In December I shared a cutting chart + instructions for the Friendship Star quilt block in 6 different sizes.  Today I want to share with you the finished quilt that prompted that post.

A few months ago in my local quilt group, we had a member who fell and broke both of her wrists.  Some of us in the group thought it would be nice to make her a quilt to show her a little extra love during that difficult time.  We decided to use the simple, classic Friendship block because of its name and we asked everyone who wanted to participate to make 1 block in her favorite colors - pink and yellow.  Here it is all finished!

We made the 12" blocks from my cutting chart and got a total of 20 blocks.
So the finished quilt size is 48" x 60 - a nice lap-size quilt.

 This is a "friendship quilt" in the truest sense of the word.  Many friends made blocks.
I sewed them all together to make the quilt top. One friend named Grace quilted it and another friend named Melissa bound it.  It was a true joint effort!

I think the different shades of pink and yellow ended up so cute and using different low-volume fabrics for the block backgrounds was a scrappy, yet cohesive way to pull everything together!

I had this swallow print in my stash that I thought went perfectly with the front of the quilt.
It's from my first fabric collection, Treasured Threads.

What do you think?  Fun project right?  It's so nice to come together as friends/quilting community to do some good sometimes!  If you want the cutting chart and instructions click HERE.  It includes instructions for 6 different block sizes.  

Thanks for stopping by today.
