    Friendship Quilt

    These blocks belonged to my friend's mother. They were made in 1933 but had never been put together for a quilt. I finished it for her this morning. I had to add the sashing material and a strip on the back, the rest is all 1933 fabric.

    What a wonderful treasure you have finished! The memories associated with the signature blocks will be interesting. Is your friend's mother still alive to tell some of the stories of the people's blocks?
