i started making quilts when i was a little kid. i'll have to post some pictures of these to show you what i made!
about a year ago, i set out to find a new hobby - something to help me focus on something that wasn't work. i discovered ATCs (artist trading cards) at my local craft store and signed up at atcsforall.com. it was there that i started getting back into crafts, first with ATCs and then with fabric crafts. during a charm square swap, we figured out that many of us sewed so my buddy carole started hosting quilt block swaps. so much fun!
the basis for the swap is making others in your groups blocks to their size and colors. most of us play for 9 inch blocks, some for 12 inch blocks. as a result, it was easy for me to fall in love with making the little 3 1/2 inch blocks that can be combined to make these!
double friendship star in blues and whites. i've done a few of this pattern and it looks good if the colors contrast well.
