|Friendship Ring quilt block|
The blocks were really a joy to piece - only 8 full blocks, as pictured, + 6 side half blocks + 4 quarter corner blocks. And writing the pattern is going great, but, of course, you will need the set of Ardco templates to complete the quilt.

I'll bet you hand piecers can easily see how the block goes together just by seeing the template set!
It really is a fun, fun block to hand piece - not for a beginning hand piecer, but very do-able. This hand piecing was all new to me, but each block I did was an improvement over the last. So, you can do it, too!
A few of the Thursday Girls have made a practice block & as soon as the new fabric comes, we'll be ready to challenge the quilt.
Speaking of the new fabric, I snapped a few photos of the fabric cards to show you the Friendship Ring fabric.
