Recently a close quilting friend passed away after suffering a short battle with cancer..
I have been part of this group about 13 years... There were 5 now only 4...
To help us deal with it we decided to make some blocks for all of us..
We make 2 designs of 12.5" blocks. Anything we want, anyway we want... But we have to make 5 of each... Then we will pass 1 to each of us. Rhonda is making 3 designs. This will give us all 9 blocks each. We will put together a quilt for Jill's husband to comfort him. Then we can all make what we want with the blocks.
This is my first design... A lovely saying and 5 hearts for 5 lovely ladies.
Each heart represents one of us in our favourite colour..

A beautiful saying with 5 lovely hearts...

All 5 blocks. 
Now to get the next block designed....


  1. Hi Jo
    Oh I'm sorry to read of your friends passing... this is such a loving & beautiful way to remember her & honour the friendships in your group.

  2. So sorry to hear you have lost one of your patchwork friends. A lovely idea to make a quilt for her husband and blocks for each of your group. I love your block and stitching. The message is great.

  3. What a lovely tribute and the hearts are beautiful.

  4. Beautiful blocks Jo, lovely idea to work through the sorrow.

  5. beautiful blocks made with love,


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
