Something that you won’t see in the book though is the friendship quilt that I made with the help of some of my blogging friends, unfortunately it was not finished in time to be professionally photographed for the book – but the instructions and the illustrations for the quilt are in the book along with some information on how to organise your own friendship quilt and why you might want to!

I sent a group of blogging pals a little package of fabric and some notions with some basic instructions on making a simple block design – they were able to decorate, embellish and sign it any way they wanted – the results were varied and interesting and really quite exceptionally lovely. The finished quilt is a perfect momento of my blogging and crafting journey and the making of this book.

Here are some snippets from the quilt – and thank you to all the participants.

 

EVENTS: For those in Canberra Australia - I will be launching the book and showing some of the quilts at Paperchain independent bookstore in Manuka on Thursday 17 November (5.45pm) – all welcome (rsvp to info[@]paperchainbookstore.com.au)
