There are two other sets of blocks to collect for a total of 12 friendship blocks. Set #2 is FREE to get you started!
Each block in this set (Set #1)features a light-colored strip so that you can have friends sign the blocks like an autograph album. Use the designs to create a keepsake quilt for yourself or for a special friend. Commemorate a birthday, a special occasion, or simply friendship.
Heartfelt Friends, Happy Memories, and Crazy Companions have foundation-paper-pieced sections. The other pieces are rotary cut and the piecing is easy.
This pattern includes fully illustrated directions for each of the 4 blocks in the set, including full-size templates for the required foundations.
These blocks are perfect for a block-of-the-month project, too. Organize your friends and get stitching!
