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.
My favorite fabric in Moonlit Blooms is Vivid Chevron which is used in the outer border. I love the bright colors on a black ground. It’s just so dazzling! Gathered Friends will be a wonderful gift for a special friend, or to keep for yourself and share with a friend that’s visiting. Any way you look at it, the quilt begs a good cuddle!
