Crossroads Quilt Along: Friendship Block


Welcome to the Crossroads Quilt Along benefiting March of Dimes! We've raised over $6500 for the March of Dimes thus far, and it's all thanks to you! 
 
Today, we are introducing our third block, Friendship Block
 

This block was inspired by the varied friendships we have in our lives: from life-long best friends to quilty friends that understand our love for quilting, fabric and notions like no other!



Watch Kimberly's video tutorial and download the pattern to get sewing. For every pattern download, we are asking for a minimum of $5 donation to our March of Dimes fundraiser

 


Here's a fun way to customize your block: embroidery! Quilty staffer, Sarah, used embroidery floss from our Aurifloss Macaroon set to add this darling flower to her Friendship Block. Imagine all the possibilities!

Whether you add the initials of special friends to the centers of your Friendship Blocks, or add French Knots to your polka dots, embroidery is another way to make your Crossroads Quilt uniquely you.

I enjoyed the videos on making the strawberry pincushion and how to use the starch method to applique. Great step-by-step videos! Thank you for a chance to win some nice goodies! :o)

I enjoyed all the videos, but the one I enjoyed the most, was discussing all the minis. Thanks for the chance to win one of those nice give aways. sisnumber2@gmaildotcom
