Inquiries answered……………….

My “Friendship Quilt” post (here) brought a couple of questions as to the specifics of how my group organizes this. The pattern, fabric, etc is given out to the members to piece, sign and return. I chose to include two 7” squares of the fabric that I wanted to be the unifying ‘constant’. IMG_6105IMG_6106IMG_6103     I asked that the signature be placed on one of the narrow/skinny green pieces.  IMG_6104   The squares finish at, approximately, 12”. I will measure/square each block to the size of the smallest returned block, add a border (green), quilt and finish it for a wonderful remembrance of the group.

      You are welcome. I think the most challenging part is choosing a pattern that will allow success for all skill levels in a group so that participation with a happy ending is guaranteed. This pattern really fits that perfectly!!!!!
