Free Pattern: Circle of Friends Challenge Quilt for Modern Quilts Unlimited

Here are some pictures of a little quilt I quilted for Victoria Findlay Wolfe back in 2015. I recently saw pictures of it hanging in a EZ Simplicity booth at QuiltCon which reminded me I have never shared the pictures.

Quoting Victoria:

“Friends find the common thread. My friend Michele and I were talking one day about what might happen if we challenged our friends, Lisa, Earamichia, Andrea, David, Andrea, Kim and Karla to join us and each make a block that would be assembled into a friendship quilt.

Without thinking much about rules, we sent out fabric and a Simplicity mini template tool for each to design their own block. We gave no restrictions to how they used it, but asked for a 12.5″ block incorporating the tool. What came back to us was a pleasant surprise! When we laid out all the blocks, we found that all of the blocks where designed with a similar design element— all were built in a line!

We wanted the quilt blocks to set in a simple, modern layout that would enhance the movement of the blocks and let the designs speak for themselves. They say that there is a thread that can bind us all. In this case, we all literally made our “thread” by the way we designed our blocks—evidence that our friendships through quilting bind us together!”

You can get the free pattern here.  

Victoria wanted a simple quilting pattern so she opted for straight lines. I added some fiddly detail to the block details.
