Breast of Friends

I am doing the Breast of Friends quilt along with my sister, Lucky. We are doing one block a month in the colours of our choice. I am enjoying the appliques but most of all doing this with my sister is the best part. We live 300km apart but with emails, we are able to checkout what each other is doing. We each have a daughter and plan to leave our quilts, along with a Journal about the making of the quilts to our daughters. The first photo is Block 1.




This is Block 2. At the Adelaide Craft and Quilting fair I bought 2 fat 1/4s for Lucky to use in her quilt and she bought me 2. The reason for this was so that a little bit of us was in the other ones quilt.


This is Block 3 and all you get is a little hint of what it looks like. If you want to see the Blocks Lucky has done you can by visiting her blog at www.stitchselection.blogspot.com

Patchwork Hugs, Debs

Thanks everyone for you comments.

Dawn I had a great time at your place and a big thank you for allowing me into you home. I can see why Lucky rings me after her Craft Day with so much excitement in her voice. xx
