    I am interested in doing a friendship quilt but am a total beginner at this. I have been unable to find patterns that would work for this. I have seen my great grandmother's friendship quilt and really like that. It had what appears to be a shell pattern in each corner and the names were embroidered in the middle. I also was unclear on what kind of pen or pencil was needed to do the signatures. Please help!!!!

    Thank you for the link. I think I liked the one showing the ribbon star quilt the best. I will have to get a picture of Grannie's quilt and include next time.

    My local quilt guild, amazing civil war quilts. the friendship quilt that lasted, even the names! 150 years ! Who knew ! The ink at the time could have been the ink sold for quilt fabrics. That was available at the time.

    The pens that are sold at JoAnns or any quilt shop, as long as it is for fabric, and permanent.

    Good luck, have lots of fun !

    also, the Ohio Star is one that has a big block. there are other choices here.

    the one I saw from Civil War, strips used with signatures. each block was then a strip block. signature bottom corner to top corner, 1/3'd top a color, middle third ( all diagonal) signature with cream background, bottom 1/3 a color of differant than top.

    think diagonal bottom point of square to top right point.
