In Friendship

Back towards the end of last year I was running a few quilt ideas past Claire
when we decided to run with the idea of a 
"Friendship Quilt"

Blocks were picked, which so far are all by the talented Camille over at Thimble Blossoms.
No surprise there if you know Claire and myself :o)

So the idea was that each of us pick our fabrics and then each month we pick a block from the list and make two identical ones. One to keep and one to post to the other.

Here was my fabric pull to start me off.

Yes even my precious Bliss and Ruby Stash is fair game for this project. 

For January I made Swoon in Bliss

and then Flower Girl for February in Vintage Modern

Now you will have to excuse the Ipad Screen Shots from Instagram here.
These are Claire's blocks.  January is Swoon and February is Sweet Life.


Did you notice Claire's choice of fabric?
Yep I think we are both a bit smitten over the Bonnie and Camille ranges :o)
It will be interesting at the end of the year to see what we do when we assemble our quilts as we
will have identical blocks but maybe totally different ideas on layout?

My current thinking is a fully reversible quilt.
My blocks one side and Claire's on the other.
I wonder what Claire it thinking?

Thanks for popping by,
hugs Sharon
