This quilt was made by my local quilt guild and our members made the Friendship Star blocks last year. We pieced this quilt top together in Nov/Dec and then got a request from a local school for a quilt to raffle for their playground fundraiser. This quilt seem to fit the request as it is colourful, cheery and a lap size.
At our guild we teach a block every second month and we ask members to make two blocks, one is donated to the guild the second goes into a draw. For every 2 quilt block you bring back you get your name in the draw. Well this time a member who made blocks wrote the guilds name instead of hers and the guilds name was drawn so we ended up with all the blocks.
Once we knew this would be a candidate for the school raffle quilt we put a fun ‘chalkboard’ print fabric on the back. I quilted it with the Popcorn pantograph and white So Fine thread.
