Gathered Friends

The Gathered Friends quilt is a reminder of how important those we hold dear are to us. Built with blocks that intertwine, they have an appearance of holding one another together as dear friends. The block is a simple 9-Patch with half-square-triangles (HST) in the corners. The block is then set on point with additional HSTs which create a braided look. Truly an exercise in color placement, you will enjoy watching each block unfold and interlock as they are sewn together.

As you may imagine, when your company operates exclusively through a catalog and online store, the accuracy of content that we put out there is VERY important to our customers.

Botanical Beauty was such a fun group of theme oriented fabrics, and I enjoyed playing with them! Garden imagery in Garden in Blues is everywhere from flora to floating butterflies, and sheets of lattice to whimsical pebbles (which are my favorite). There are a couple of fabrics that are tone-on-tone, and with the pebbles, are great transitional choices when working with the stronger colored prints. There is the flower clusters that remind me of Queen Anne’s Lace or perhaps those lovely “wishes” we find in our yards born from dandelions.
