Day 3 Giveaway
Here are three friendship blocks I worked hard on last night. So far I've found the whole friendship block exchange a little difficult because it's hard to guess what someone else would choose looking at your own fabric choices. I know which way I'd go with these things but I really had to go out of my way to do it differently than I would have for myself.
This circle one was very easy because she provided a template, picture and the fabric for the circles. She specifically wanted the Adorn Line that we have at Seasons of Home and I think it'll be a super cute quilt.
Here are the three blocks pre-sewing. I think I could do more on the snowmen, but I don't want to go too far.
Now for the questions of the day, what quilt would you like to do if you have 12 other hands to help you? and if you don't have a specific quilt, what theme would you choose?
I had actually already done a snowman block for one of the contributors. It was very simple with a blue background, a plain white snowman and a snowflake, very Scandinavian if you know what I mean. The lackluster reception and another contributor's block that got rave reviews meant I had to go back to the drawing board and I produced the top block which I think will work into the quilt she had envisaged. True story.
