Friendship Quilt Along

Welcome to the second week of the Friendship Quilt along with Moda Designers. Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to visit Kathy Schmitz and Lauren & Jessi Jung today as well!

I hope you have been following along this Blog Hop and collecting all of the Signature Blocks, they are 9″ finished and a lot of fun to make.

This one is mine, click here or on the block above to get the directions to make this cutie. Each block has a 3″ finished square that is perfect for a signature.

Lately I have been in love with basket quilts and I have created quite a few with my Paint Box Collection from Moda that will arrive in stores this Spring.

I have made some little baskets – like this “Petite Pail”.

Some big ones like “Paint Basket”.

Some with applique in “Scrappy Basket Trio” and even some from tiny patches for the “Shaker Basket”.

“Flower Box” has the glow of an 8 point star and an applique border.

I have always enjoyed baskets and especially sharing them with friends. Making this friendship basket quilt many years ago with my friend Dominique from France was so much fun. We each made baskets and exchaged them to add variety to our quilts.

 I decided to use this little basket for the center of my block as a signature stamp by reducing the size to 3″ finished.

 To make one of these baskets you will need:

2 light squares 1-1/2″
2 light half square triangles cut from 2-7/8″ square
1 dark half square triangle cut from 2-7/8″ square
2 dark half square triangle cut from 1-7/8″ square
1 dark strip cut on bias 1/2″ x 4″ for handle.

5″ squares are perfect to cut this block - Charm Pack friendly!

I use a bias tape maker and card stock template to create the handle for the basket.

First I made my handle with a bias tape maker and fusible tape.

I then place my template on background triangle, pin handle on one side then fuse it in place following the template.

Allow the handle to cool and piece the basket together. Once the block is assembled, I then applique the handle to the background. I find it is much easier to applique the handle after the block is assembled (easier to hold than a small triangle).

This is how my block looked when completed using the little basket as my center.

I have always enjoyed friendship signature quilts. This pair are some of the oldest quilts that I own and are two of my favorites.

Often I look at these quilts to read the names from the blocks wondering what significance they were for the quilt maker - Family? Friends? I’m sure there was a special meaning for each one of them.

I am so very lucky that my friends from Pennsylvania exchanged friendship blocks with me that I assembled into this quilt. I miss them very much and I am very glad to have this quilt to remind me of them.

A simple triangle quilt can also become a friendship quilt like the “Triangle Star” above. I created it using all of the triangle that I received from all my TQS friends - Sisterhood of the Traveling Triangles.

I love applique and couldn’t help myself from signing this block from my Family Tree Quilt, another great idea for a friendship quilt.

Have fun collecting, making, and sharing all of the wonderful friendship blocks from this Blog Hop. Click here for the full schedule of Moda designers in this Friendship Hop.

I love to hear from all of my friends out there! Please leave me a comment by March 1st - maybe share the special plan for your friendship blocks or just say “Hi”! We will randomly choose 3 winners to receive an “Paint Box” Collection prize to help you finished your friendship projects.

Happy Quilting!
Your Friend,
Edyta

    I love your basket block! Thanks for the tutorial on the clover bias tape maker and fusible tape–I’ve never seen either used so it was helpful. I’m making a basket quilt now that has 290+ baskets in it, all applique, and it’s a struggle to get my handles to be nice and circular.

  20. Diane Smith says:

Add that to my list of things I want to try. Thanks for the chance.

  23. Lynne says:

    Hi Edyta
    Your baskets are all just gorgeous. Love how you have personalised your block with the wee basket and your signature. Just shows how we can all make the same block and each will have our own personal signature/personality making them similar but oh so different. :-) I have your small diary for the year where I can flick and see a different quilting side to Edyta every week :-)

  24. Pam Etheridge says:

  110. Sandy M says:

    Hi Edyta! Thanks for sharing these quilts with us. I love how quilts hold so many stories and friendship quilts are ones that hold the most mystery. My first experience with basket blocks was so horrible that I stayed away from them for a while but it seemed that the quilts that offered the most inspiration were basket quilts. I just recently finished a quilt using basket blocks and I have another one in the works. I have really learned to love them. Thanks for the extra basket block. I think it will definitely find it’s way into a quilt. Have a wonderful week!

  111. Lynn says:

    Thanks so much for the basket handle. I have had so much trouble with them and this just makes it look so easy. Thanks also for the give away.

    Thanks for the chance to win some of your fabric, Edyta.

  153. Heather Braun says:

    I planned on making my dear friend a quilt for Christmas this year. I know the colors that I am going with and this QA came at the perfect time. I met my friend, Jen, six years ago when my husband PCSed for the first time to Fort Riley, KS. She was my first true Army spouse friend. She became a sister to me and I miss he so very much. We we’re able to spend two years together before the Army moved her family to Fort Rucker. We PCSed to Fort Jackson, SC two years ago but just before we moved her family was PCSed to Fort Carson, CO. We were so close to being able to drive and meet in the middle. :( We will see each other again soon and I hope she loves this quilt! thanks for the chance to win!

  154. Sharon Bennett says:

I love your applique blocks but am not very good at applique! But, I keep trying. Thanks, Judy R from Buffalo

    Nice quilts and beautiful fabrics! I used a lot of my friendship blocks a few years ago to make quilts for a house for orphans in Poland. I collected the blocks for years and did not find time to use them. It is a nice thought that there are a few children in Poland who will sleep under the quilts made with the blocks ;-)

    Love, love, love basket blocks!! What a great idea to make that your center. I am loving the laser cut applique pieces from your line – it’s absolutely beautiful! I’ve never made bias tape with the fusible and not sure how that went in there all at once, I’ll have to explore that tip. Your photos are delish, loved looking at them.

  372. Pam S says:

    I love the basket pattern, especially in your wonderful Paintbox fabrics! I’m amazed at how beautiful the results are when you blend batiks and prints. Your quilts are so beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway.

  373. Sharrieboberry says:

    The colors in your quilts are very pretty. Vintage, but not quite. Bright tones, but not too bright. They are lovely to look at.

    I made a baby/friendship quilt once. A couple in our Sunday School class was moving and I made them a quilt from the class and the couples signed the quilt. I then hand quilted it (at hubby’s insistance) and hubby quilted a bit on it. It was hard and even though he spent a couple hours on it, not much quilting was done (no, I did not take it out!) I think he thought it would be easier than it actually was!

    He’s been talking about me starting to do some hand quilting lately–I think he has forgotten about the previous difficulties that were encountered!

  374. Susan G. says:

    I really like the basket blocks. So pretty with the paintbox fabrics. I hope here in Canada we get those fabrics.

  375. Diane says:

    Edyta, Your baskets quilts inspire me to start one and the Paintbox Fabrics are wonderful and beyond. Would love to find the patterns for the basket quilts. Another book? I have been collecting all your previous books, love to browse and gaze! Thank you for the inspiration!

  376. kay says:

    Great fabric line! I particularly love the golden orange fabric that appears in some of the photos. This blog hop is inspiring me to make a friendship quilt, and I think Paint Box will be perfect for it.

  377. Jo Anne says:

    Love the baskets! Your new paintbox fabrics look lovely.

  378. I love your quilts, Edyta! Who does your quilting, it is beautiful!?

  391. Shirley Giese says:

    Thank you for the block and the basket handle instructions. I am making a quilt that has lots of blocks of small baskets with handles. I think using a template to shape them rather than following a drawn line will be easier. Thanks!

    Your quilt designs are exquisite. I also did a basket block exchange with a lady that lives in St. Priest France. I have never met her, she is a friend of a friend that lives there as well. We never made enough blocks to complete anything. Looking at your baskets has inspired me to make more to send to her. I’m hoping you chose my name so I can use your fabrics to make more exchange blocks.

  397. Sharon says:

    I plan to send my blocks on to a charity group – they will get 2-3 quilts out of them to send on to someone in need of a quilty hug.

  398. Cecilia says:

    I have been thinking that I would like to make these blocks and have my friends from my weekly sit n sew sign them. That way I will always have something to remember them by when I move. I like the wy you used a basket for the center of your block. Thanks for the giveaway.

  399. Regina Lankford says:

    Hi, I must say all of the quilting you show on your blog is absolutely gorgeous, you are so talented. I would love to try to make a basket using your directions here on your blog. I would use the fabric to make a beautiful table runner and I think it would look really nice to put a quilted basket in the center of the runner. Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful work.

  461. connie johnson says:

    Love your use of color. That’s what seems to draw me in. Love the basket. Thought I’d try a sample block. I’m a bit confused. The first direction mentions 2 light 1 1/2 ” squares. For the life of me I don’t see any squares in the pattern. Rectangles ,perhaps ??

  489. Ferne says:

    Good morning! I am enjoying this post with a cup of coffee…what a great way to start my day! I have enjoyed all of your books and patterns since Hop to It! and now there is fabric too! I am glad you shared your method for basket handles, I just made the block from Anne Sutton and that was the one part I had a little trouble with. My lesson learned was to not cut the handle length until you get it down, but it did turn out and I will try it again because I am loving basket quilts too!

  490. Leanne says:

    This Blog Hop is so much fun! I love basket quilts and when they are scrappy they are the best! The fabric is so yummy. Thanks for all the great tips.

This friendship quilt could not have come at a better time for me. Thanks to all of you ~

  518. Tammi Williams says:

    Blog Hop, what fun!! So nice that you showed your way of handeling the small baskets. I’m working on 5″ baskets now and was at a standstill becasue I decided I needed more. I’ll try on handle technique with the next batch.

  524. Janice King says:

    Basket patterns have always somehow intimidated me….lol! This pattern seems like something I could finish, especially using the tip for the handles. Your idea of using these friendship blocks for a family tree quilt is perfect, as I have been wanting to make one for some time. Just couldn’t come up with a pattern hat seemed appropriate. Thanks so much!

  525. julie hardgrave says:

    Hi Edyta! I love everything you do! I just finished a half square triangle exchange and I am waiting for my triangles! I would love to include some of your new fabric line in the quilt I make with them!

  526. Cathy Starkes says:

    I have not started the blocks yet, but hope to over Easter. I have a family get together in July in Newfoundland. If I get all the blocks done in time, I plan on bringing the quilt home for family members to sign.

    Love your site…..love your quilts…..I am currently finishing the Rainbow Star Quilt and working on the Spring Bouquet. Love this block….think I will use it on the back of these for my signature block. I can’t wait to see your new line of fabrics and the quilts you have in store for us this year. I stopped quilting about 15 years ago and you have inspired me to start again…..I love, love, love quilting once again.
    I am having so much fun for this Quilt Along…..I will be using all my left overs for the blocks.
    I am also waiting for 1500 half square triangles to come in from an exchange that my local quilt shop offered. I think over 20 stores from all over the world are participating.
    Thanks

  540. June Sommer says:

    Hi from New Jersey (USA)! I ‘m anxious to see your Paint Box fabric collection. I have all of your books and have learned to”relax” my fabric choices by mixing batiks in with my more “traditional “fabrics.
    As soon as I can find your pattern for Paint Baskets
    I ‘ll be mixing more fabrics for the quilt. Also love your “Shaker Baskets” and will be looking for that pattern too!

    I love the look of your quilts–gorgeous! I can’t say I have a plan for my friendship blocks yet…I am still dreaming about them and trying to decide which fabric I want to use!! This is becoming tougher all the time; each time I open another blog, I see another WONDERFUL colorway and I just can’t seem to choose a favorite! Sounds terrible, huh? :) I am having a great time looking at all the blocks and extra projects (thank you for adding the basket!!) and awaiting the weekend so I can just decide already and start cutting!!

  553. Sharon Joyner says:

    OMGosh Edyta over 500 messages how lucky you are to have so many wonderful blog buddies. I love your little basket block and I have to tell you I am in a quilt class this year after 120 or more years of quilting just to make basket blocks.

Your quilts are just wonderful and your colors well who wouldn’t want to win a bundle from you…I admire your work, your colors and your design…keep on teaching us quilters we need you..

  554. Sharon Joyner says:

    I haven’t made a friendship quilt yet but i made some blocks and let everyone of the family sign them and made a family-quilt thus.

  579. Donna says:

    Love the Paint Box colorways. They’re reminiscent of older Thimbleberries fabrics;
    My earliest quits were made in that soft style, making new quilts look old.

  590. Sandi Zuker says:

    Okay Edyta! How do you accomplish finishing so many wonderful quilts in what seems to be a very short time. Must be something wrong with me… I feel like quilting is all I do and few real accomplishments. Please share your secret to success, I know you have to eat and sleep, don’t you?

  591. Willeke says:

    Great solution for the baskets!!! I just made mine a lot complexer…
