Each block in this set 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. There are two other sets of blocks to collect for a total of 12 friendship blocks. Simple rotary cutting and machine piecing techniques make it easy to create the blocks for your sampler. This pattern includes fully illustrated directions for each of the 4 blocks in the set, including full-size templates for the required foundations. Secret Pal is easy and requires no templates. Heartfelt Friends has two paper-pieced sections; Happy Memories has one; and Crazy Companions requires two of the same foundation. These blocks are perfect for a block-of-the-month project, too. Organize your friends and get stitching!
