Halloween Friendship Quilt

Just in time for Halloween...

This quilt is one that I made from friendship exchange blocks from my quilt guild two years ago. For anyone not familiar with friendship exchanges, here is a brief run-down of the rules. Someone in charge chooses a theme, color, block size, etc. and organizes the exchange. If you choose to join the exchange, you will make one block for each person who participates, including yourself. For example, if 24 people join, you'll make 24 identical blocks and trade them with everyone else on swap day. It is a fun way to make a few blocks and get a bunch of different blocks in the end. Participation is optional. Creativity is encouraged.

So, this Halloween friendship exchange quilt is two years in the making and finally finished. The only rules for this one were a halloween theme and block sizes that were divisible by 3. It was fun to do--kind of like putting together a puzzle, and I am happy with the end result.

About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
