One of the great traditions of quilting are friendship blocks. The idea is that when someone in your community moves away friends and family make one block each to send off with their friend who is moving away, as a reminder of the people left behind. This quilt was made with friendship blocks made and given to Peggi in the 70’s it was left unfinished until now!
“I had so many wonderful ideas in the 70’s, one was to send out muslin squares to friends & family to make their mark in artistic ways so that I could put together a memory quilt. Well, it is now 2017 and the quilt is complete. My friend Diane has brought all these pieces together in such a wonderful way, they tell my story. Her beautiful stitch work has worked it’s magic. I now display our quilt as wall art, for that is what it has become with Diane’s help…”
