A few months ago, one of the quilt guilds I attend did a friendship heart block swap. We each used the same heart shapes and used white, pink and cream (and low volume) backgrounds with pink and red fabrics for the hearts.
We each made one large and two small heart blocks for each member that was swapping. We could embellish one of the hearts in the set as we chose. As I made my blocks I loved being able to dig through my scraps and be creative with each set of blocks. And I loved that everyone embellished their blocks in their own unique way:
It was fun to get my stack of blocks back and lay them all out together. Each block definitely has it's own personality and when they're all sewn together into one quilt the scrappy loveliness is delightful!
For the backing I chose a flannel so it will be nice and snuggly. I added a wide ric rac with the binding and I LOVE the look.
We all brought our heart quilts to our guild meeting this week and it was fun to see them all together. You can see Amber’s version of the Friendship Heart Quilt here, and her original quilt that inspired our block swap here.
