Friendship blocks are a fun voluntary activity we do every other month, alternating with the Opportunity Blocks. You must sign up to participate. Participating members will make a block specified by the receiving member in a one to two month time frame. The receiving member then will create a quilt with those blocks. Below are some blocks that have been done for eligible members. We can't wait to see the complete quilts. Enjoy!
Click here to see blocks that have been made in past years.
Note: Due to the pandemic, please contact Debby W (friendship chair) and also the member handing out the block if you want to participate. Let's keep our friendships strong!
Friendship Block for Marilyn D-R - Double Pinwheel or Windmill -due December 1, 2020
Marilyn is providing all needed fabric for this project. If you did not get a packet on Oct 13 parking lot drive by, please contact Marilyn to arrange for getting a packet from her. The packet also has "Thangles" patterns to ensure that all the half square triangles are the same size. Please make sure you use a 1/4" seam allowance so all blocks will fit together. All fabric has been pre-cut so all you need to do is sit and sew! You will find 3 sets of Thangles. Two will be used in the block, and the other will be used for the border.
It is best to sew the Thangles first on the dotted line, then cut on the solid line. Please make sure you square up the half square triangles to 4 1/2" unfinished. The Thangle says 4", but that is finished size, make sure you do not cut them too small. Press toward the print. If you have questions, please call or email Marilyn before cutting!
Note that the solid batik fabric is in the corners. There are no fabrics the same touching in the block. Please lay out the block as in the photo.
