Last Friendship Block....

....but not the last of our friendship fun. We swapped our final blocks today at lunch over a little "soul food" a great new resturant. We immediately began plotting what we would start doing now in our little mini lunch group, besides eat that is. We didn't come up with an idea yet...any suggestions?

So here are our blocks.

First up is Carol's block - a signature block with a sweet saying. I have enjoyed getting to know Carol over the past year or so. She always encourages me to try to things and shares my enthusiasm for new techniques and projects. Thanks Carol for all the blocks and for your friendship!
Next, we have Cheryl's Signature block - a little wonky, just like Cheryl! I love to joke around with Cheryl. We have worked together for years, but who's counting. She has a great heart, wonderful sense of humor and cares deeply for her friends. I am blessed to have her for a friend.
And then my block, which is the Nice People Nice Things "Friends" block. I gave Carol and Cheryl a signature block earlier in the year, and don't have a picture of it, but I thought this block so appropriate for our quilt.
This project was a lot of fun and thank you Thimbleanna for the idea. Gather up 3 or 4 of your own friends and have a swap each month. Some months it was hard to decide what block to do, but it was so much fun making blocks for my friends and receiving their special blocks. Now to get the quilt made!

Teresa, your block is darling. What a great idea with the exchange of blocks at lunch. I belong to two friendship groups and we exchange blocks twice a year. It is so much fun getting blocks from other people, and frustrating when trying to decide what block I will make.

P.S. Why not do a Round Robin quilt?
