The Gathered Friends quilt is a reminder of how important those we hold dear are to us. Built with blocks that intertwine, they have an appearance of holding one another together as dear friends. The block is a simple 9-Patch with half-square-triangles (HST) in the corners. The block is then set on point with additional HSTs which create a braided look. Truly an exercise in color placement, you will enjoy watching each block unfold and interlock as they are sewn together.

Quilt designing and writing are a fundamental part of my responsibilities at Connecting Threads. It is without a doubt, the most delightful job. One can only wish to have a job like this! Interestingly enough, it’s a challenge to write this because it’s like telling someone how to play! You just do it! Right?
The Moonlit Blooms collection is an enormous cluster of color amid a sea of black. The combination has great impact! This fusion creates the most stunning quilts whether for a bed, lap quilt or a table runner. Posy Spray is large enough to be a table topper, lap quilt or wall hanging at 54”.
The Baroque Floral fabric from the Moonlit Blooms collection is just gorgeous, simply gorgeous. Sunset Jewels Table Runner does a good job of framing it in and providing the space needed to deliver a beautiful quilt. I think its voice is loud and clear! The colors are so saturated, and the black ground gives the blooms room to speak.
