Breast of Friends - Finished!!!

Well - its all done - quilted and bound.
I have really enjoyed doing this quilt - wondering what the next edition of Homespun will surprise me with.  And having a deadline to work to (to send photos to Homespun by 31st January 2010) pushed me along a lot.
My apologoes to the designers whose blocks I changed and also for he changes I made to the layout.  But I have always believed that patterns are meant as a guide and an inspiration - and a little creative licence is only fair.  In particular I changed the Girls Weekend with the car - I used another design for the car from Lynette Anderson O'Rourke and I changed the wording - to "August Retreat" and the signposts point to the location of the retreat and away from home! 

Here are the individual blocks - in no particular order.

The House block

The Doves

(couldn't resist the shoe buttons I found only last week)

Laugh Often

Tea with Friends


In the car and one Rosalie Quinlan block

Friendlier with two

Hand of Friendship

Kindred Spirits

Off to the retreat

and the other two RQ blocks

and finally - the quilt itslelf!

Hi Susan just love your quilt. I am also one that changes the patterns as I go along. I still have a long way to go but am getting there slowly but surely.
