One of the gals in our quilt guild owns a quilt shop. She asked us to purchase a kit with the fabrics she provided and make a 12 1/2 inch block that we thought best depicted hope. She would make these blocks into a quilt to be used for fundraising for ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease. I went simple, but to me friendship would be something that would definitely give me hope in good times and bad.
And I was ecstatic that it came out to a perfect 12 1/2 inches. Oh joy!!
