    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?

    That is stunning. I collect vintage fabric when I see it at estate sales. Have some bubblegum pink yardage that looks similar to some in the quilt. It is only 36" wide!

    No, my friend is in her mid-80's, but she says she remembers most of the people whose names are on the blocks. I am going to take it to her in Mid-Oct when my bro and I head to New Mexico via Texas.
    God Bless,

    I have a similar one passed down from my grandmother dated 1936. She never used it, just had it stashed somewhere. When she died in 1939 (from consumption/tuberculosis?) it went to her oldest daughter (my aunt) who saved it in a cedar chest. (She didn't use quilts.) My aunt gave it to me when she gave me her cedar chest. I treasure it, just not sure what to do with it.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    It was a piece I had in my stash. No idea when or where it came from! But I thought it "fit".

    How pretty. I bet those blocks are happy to finally be together as a real quilt after all this time.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
