Once A Week Keep Your Own Block #3

Hello and welcome back to week 3 of our challenge.  We are going with the friendship theme for January and the block this week is called Friendly Hand.  This is yet another variation of the Friendship Star and can be found at:  http://www.quilterscache.com/F/FriendlyHandBlock.html.  This makes a 12 inch block and is very pretty.

Thanks for playing along and we would love to see your creations so please continue to post pictures and update the database when you are done.  Remember you have the whole month of January to finish and if you find that a block is too difficult, you can always pass.  You can also print the patterns and save for a rainy day but I think it is more fun as a group to see if we can keep up with the challenge.  I will be posting the final block for January on Saturday, Jan 25.

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
