Quaker friendship quilts

Good morning

I have found some pictures of some Quaker friendship quilts.  Unlike most quilts, that were made in celebration of a wedding or anniversary, these quilts were made to mark a different kind of occasion!

These were made often by a woman saying goodbye to her family,friends or community forever, maybe to accompany her husband in search of work, land or gold!

I have found some beautiful examples and I hope that you enjoy the history and looking at them.

Today I am hand sewing and working on some of my ideas that I have been mentioning to you... Also I am working out another competition.... watch this space!

Enjoy your day and happy stitching!
