Friends with Benefits?

One of our Sweet Pea ladies bought a load of fabric awhile  ago to make a quilt.


She became disenchanted with the pattern and wondered what else she could do. After some research I found this quilt on the net:


……and worked out how to make it. Today I sewed a sample block and put together a series of construction photos:

This is a super easy block to make. Nothing to match until blocks are sewn together.

Here’s my sample block with a border to put around to see if the blocks will “float”


I have the blocks cut out and stacked ready for our Sweet Pea to sew.

Friend’s with benefits?A more genteel interpretation – perhaps the top will come back for me to quilt.Sweet Peas meet at our house tomorrow, pop back to see what they have been up to.


  1. What a great block..... and the fabric is amazing. Cannot wait to see your finished quilt!

  2. I'm so impressed - it looks amazing!
    I'm sure it will wing it's way back to you for quilting!
    Love the last image - is that at your house for the Sweet Peas - like balloons for children's birthdays????

  3. I like the block, and I know your Sweet Pea friend will like it, too.


I love hearing from you - write now!
