A Gift Of Friendship...

FW Friendship Block from Pat
 When the mail arrived yesterday, there was an envelope from one of
the participants in the Farmer's Wife Quiltalong. I was so surprised to
see a beautiful wonderful fabulous Friendship Block from Pat!

 I voiced a thought when we first began our QAL that it might be
fun for the participants to exchange Friendship Blocks, but I never
followed through on it. Pat did. She created this block with a light
background fabric and a floral fabric that makes for a beautiful block.
When she was all finished assembling the block, she signed it.
I think that makes it even more special.

 Pat, my dear friend...You've inspired me to resuscitate the idea for us
to exchange Friendship Blocks. I can promise that I'll be making one
for you in the near future. Thank you for your generosity. I LOVE this gift!

If anyone in the QAL wants to create blocks to trade, I would suggest
we follow Pat's lead. Use a light-colored background fabric and one
darker fabric from your own Farmer's Wife Quilt. Be sure to sign it
and you'll be ready to send them on. I'm going to make one for each person
in the QAL. If we all do that, we'll have enough to make another quilt!
I'm not saying you have to do them right away, but hope you
will think about doing them before the end of our project. 

If the rest of you are interested in seeing the wonderful blocks that the
QAL gals are creating, click here to go to the Flickr album with all
the group photographs. You'll fall in serious love, just like I have.

You can also visit Pat's blog, Pat's Patter to tell her you saw her
block here. You'll find so many interesting things that she's been
working on. I'm inspired every time I visit!

Thanks again, Pat.
I'm looking forward to meeting you in person sometime soon.
