Tonight I finished assembling 1930's Chip's and Dip friendship quilt blocks with my sashing!(is that the right terminology? Do I mean setting? Wait that's jewlery.) This is very, very exciting! I designed the sashing pattern myself!
If that sounded like gibberish, here's some background:
A friendship quilt is when you make a 12 of one quilt block and then trade with 11 other friends who made a quilt block so you end up with 12 different blocks.
This particular one is made from a pattern called "Chips and Dip" or something like that. We also all used 1930's remake fabric.
You might notice that there are some repeats in this one. This is why:
My mom and I both participated in the exchange. She is a major fan of the reds and blues, I really really like the purple. We decided to divide the blocks by color and make two twin quilts one pastel and one primary. She ended up with more blocks or something, so I am including 4 extra blocks. Three that my mother had made when she was playing with the fabric, and one that I made just at the end, and LOVE! Can you find it? Its the one with teal/green and purple.
So the quilt top isn't done. I still need to add some borders, assemble the top with batting and backing, and bind it, but I couldn't help but share! Yay!!
