My friendship quilt top that I created to go along with the story The Friendship Quilt by Susan Levin and Gloria Tracy is ready to be quilted.
In case you missed the previous post, our guild matches quilts to books with quilts in them. These sets are loaned to schools for their reading programs.
This story is about a classmate that needs surgery and will miss a lot of school. The class decides to make her a friendship quilt to let her know how much they are thinking of her.
I wanted a quilt with kid friendly items similar to things they would draw on their own blocks. I outlined everything in black on white fabric so it would have a coloring book feel to it. There are some buttons and trims to add extra interest while they pass the quilt around.
Here is the rough plan I drew in EQ7 last week .
Have a crafty week!
