Friendship Quilt Block...
I have always been in love with fabrics and I have sewn for many many years. What I do not do is quilt. I find it too precise and exacting and I am not so good at math. However, I do attempt making blocks from time to time. In the past I learned how to sew a "Friendship Star" block. When some of us were invited to create a quilt block for our friend Lindsay of LindsayOstrom blog, I knew exactly what I would sew. I dug out some of my fabrics and the traveling images were just right. Lindsay loves a good road trip. I sewed my block and delivered it to our local Ben Franklin so that Francis could put them all together and make a quilt for Lindsay. When I turned it in they gave me a fabric pen to sign my name so Sherry is printed on one of the little girl's suitcases. I took this photo before I added my name.
Lindsay has been going through a rough patch with her ailing mother and taking care of both her parents way out of area. I am so grateful for being included in this Friendship Quilt project. Linnea actually took this photo and was instrumental in helping create this quilt. Here you see Lindsay hugging the quilt while some of her friends honor her and lend support. My block doesn't show in the photo but I know it is in there.
Nothing creative going on here as I just finished my six week jobette at the Chamber. Six weeks turned into ten weeks as the bookkeeper resigned. I would have loved to stay on permanently however Mr. C and I have some plans that are already set in motion and working did not fit into those plans. I am happy to say the Chamber has hired someone I like and I have done some training with her. She will fit into the Chamber family quite nicely.
Our weather has been all over the spectrum from Spring Sunny and gorgeous to rain and hail and very cold temperatures. Winter never leaves completely until well into May and sometimes even into June.
Next time I hope to share some lovely photos I captured on a little local trip Mr. C and I took.
May you be rejoicing in your Creative Bliss. Hopefully I shall get back to my beloved blogging and creating now that my schedule is more open. Spring Sunshine and Smiles...

Ah, Sherry, the ME travelers blocks are so cute! You worked them into that star block in a great way. Enjoy your little trip and be safe.ReplyDelete
I love how you have used the picture blocks in the corners might just steal that idea in the future.ReplyDelete
Wonder where you are off to for your trip, take some photos for us to see. Snow here today and then the sun comes out next minute snowing again!
Your block is stunning. The quilt is such a special idea..a true labor of love.ReplyDelete
So..have a great vacation!!
You made a great friendship star block Sherry. Happy travels.ReplyDelete
How sweet your block for the quilt is! Looks like your fear of preciseness is unfounded. You might like the Buggy Barn Quilt patterns - there is absolutely no matching of seams or points (at least on the "non-traditional" ones), and they are SO much fun to put together. Great job, Sherry! AS ALWAYS. XOXOReplyDelete
