Subject: PatternReview.com Friendship Quilt Date: 9/17/08 2:23 PM

Hi Everyone, We are making a PatternReview Friendship Quilt. This is a voluntary project but a very fun one! Whoever wants to participate will send a quilt block (specs later in this post) to me and when I have all the blocks with me, I'll throw a piecing party for anyone who wants to come. I just talked to a friend who has an art studio and is also a PR member, she has volunteered her studio space for the party and is pretty excited about it. We'll have some sewing machines (atleast 4) set up and you can bring your own if you wish. We'll have some food, play some funky music, and piece the quilt in sections. I think it'll be a lot of fun! Plus it'll give us a chance to hang out too. Deadline for the blocks: January 19th, 2009 Now about the blocks: Fabric: 100 percent quilters cotton, preshrunk Size: Finished size of the square (when you put it in the envelope) should be 6 1/2" square. How many: You can send more than one if you choose. How to send: Fold your squares in white paper (for protection) against post office handling. A number 10 business envelope would probably be best. Sign or embroider your quilt blocks with your PR Name, if you want to. On a separate piece of paper, also include your PR name, your profileid or your email address so I can let you know that I've received the block. Mailing Address: PatternReview.com, P.O. Box 993, Acton, MA 01720 Anybody who wants to participate can do so in this project. Even if you didn't send a block, you can help with the quilt piecing at the party.

I'm excited about doing this and I want to recreate my block from before. However, I can't find my pattern. Someone on the board asked me where I found the pattern and I PM'd the URL of the pattern to them. I don't remember who it was, though. If it was you, could you please give me the URL again because I really loved my block and I don't think the quilt would be the same without that specific block from me.

Deepika, if we get enough blocks, do you think we could have a west coast piecing party for half of the blocks? Then the two halfs could be put together? There are a lot of us LA gals that I bet would be willing to help.

All right, I need to see if I have appropriate fabric or if I need to pick some up at the local quilting shop! (Both alternatives sound great to me, actually. )

Depending on exactly when the quilting party is, I hope to be able to join.


Edited to add link to Sherril's previous block, which I thought was so perfect for the site.

Thanks Deepika for starting this topic and getting this started. I love it..now I need to check out what fabric I have to use.

I wish I could come to the quilting party it sounds like alot of fun but the east coast or the west coast are a bit far from me in OKlahoma.

The block was a foundation piecing block. I found the pattern at a free pattern site and thought I had a copy of the pattern but I can't find it. I sure wish I knew who asked me for the pattern and I hope they see this request and I hope they kept a copy of the link.

Foundation piecing is a lot of fun. You can find out how to do it here.

Sherril,
I'm not the person you PM'd the URL to, but I did find a free pattern for a six inch block that looks like it would work. It's called Jump for Joy!
Here's the URL for it:
http://piecebynumber.com/pastbom/jump.htm
(sorry I don't know how to hyperlink to it)
HTH

I'm also looking forward to making a block or 2 for this quilt. :)
