|Three fabrics drawn from a paper sack,|
and a stack of 20 signed friendship blocks
|An idea of a tree, some leftover L_O_V_E blocks, and burlap coffee bags|
This past fall we selected three fat quarters from a bag with instructions to make a 40” x40” quilt. Two of my pieces were ( a turquoise print and a deep pink piece) nicely coordinated, but the third piece I pulled was somewhere between a mustard green or decaying lemon color. I was saved though by the fact that we had made name blocks for a friendship quilt last summer. The outer strips of the name blocks were scrappy so that made it easy to incorporate at least one strip of the yukky fabric into the quilt. I decided to make a friendship block quilt and use my three fabrics in it.
The finished project:
