Make New Friends

Make New Friends

The group of ladies who participated in the last block exchange, with those gorgeous batiks, decided they wanted to do another exchange. 

We will do a traditional Bull’s Eye Block pattern.  The only controlled item will be the background.  Otherwise…it’s anything goes on the fabrics. 

We will use material from our…. stashes – what?  A stash?  Who has one of those?  And how many fabrics do we have that we just had to have but never have used?  Those are the one’s to go into this scrappy project!

Exchanges are a great way to stay connected with your friends who have scattered throughout the country.  Kate and I now live in Colorado and Maryland respectively.  We have a Floridian, a few Nutmeggers, and some Upstate New Yorkers in the group.  I have invited some of my new friends in Maryland and they happily agreed!    

This reminds me of that old scouting song:

 Make new friends
But keep the old
One is silver
The other is gold.

I hope to see some reflections of each of my friend’s personalities in their fabric choices – and maybe some threads of Hoffman silver and gold!

Happy quilting,
