Best Friends Quilt Along

The Best Friends quilt along is sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop and it's totally free!  I just dig into my 1 1/2" strips every week and sew the blocks.  Last week, we sewed the Economy blocks, there were only four of them.  I love choosing cute centers for my blocks, and colorful fabric to match.  I'm actually sewing these blocks with my best friend Nedra, lucky me!  We have been taking turns going to each other's homes.  We live 45 minutes away from each other.  Just think about all the sewing we would do together if we lived closer!  Nedra always makes a beautiful lunch when I'm at her house, I'm excited to see what she's serving tomorrow! Then there are all the quilty best friends I have online, one of which always leaves a comment on my blog :). No pressure, lol!  I have a quilty best friend in California where I used to live, and lots in Utah.  These days we are all virtual anyway.  That's actually how I met Nedra!  We each had a quilt blog (I still do) and would leave comments and realized how much we had in common.  Then we were friends on Instagram.  When I moved to Arizona, I contacted her and we met for lunch.  We've been best friends in person ever since!  

Next week I'll show you my Courthouse Steps block, we need to make 16 of them!  Have a great week, hope you get lots done.
