As promised, here is a peek at how the finished block turned out for the PWSC Friendship Quilt called Remember Me. This block was inspired by an old antique quilt that I saw. The antique wasn't a signature block, but I thought that if I changed a few things around, it would really be cute and different. I love how it is turning out! The flora motifs of the Remember Me block, shown above, are included with the pattern. All of the other blocks contain the signatures of my closest friends, and of the special ladies who are my founding club members. You will get to see the entire quilt after the first of the year when all of the quilts for Journey 2 are completed. Until then, I have to keep some surprises!
Now, I don't want you to worry about how to make the once-square block round. It's really quite easy. Ha (!)....you say? Well, as my mom always says - everything is easy when you know how! So, the best thing I can do is show you how! Very soon, I will have a tutorial on just how I did this, so keep checking in with me. I also have other tutorials planned as I am a teacher at heart, and think good techniques should be shared.
Let me know what you think of the Remember Me block, and I sure hope you've had some time to sew.
