For A Friend

I found this quilt online at and just had to make it.

Since I already had a bunch of 2.5 inch squares and strips cut out, my quilt turned out a little bigger than the pattern. It finishes at 113 inches square, before washing.

I am sending this quilt to a friend who has had more than her share of sorrows over the past 19 years. Hoping she will know just how much I care about her and that it will lighten her heart just a bit.

It made a great scrappy quilt. Used about 23.96 yards of fabric, including the backing and binding. No the quilt isn't sewed as crocked as it seems in the pictures, my hanging job was bad.  The corner stones are white with black dots and the binding is black with white dots.


  1. What a wonderful gift of love. Great job and a wonderful use of scraps.

  2. Norece, that's just lovely! Scrappy quilts are the best, I think!! You have a very lucky friend who will feel very loved when she wraps up in this....

  3. Just beautiful! She will LOVE it!

  4. A wonderful gift and what a stash buster!
