Freedom's Friends Finishes


Sharon A. Bennet

Appliqued by Georgann Eglinski, Quilted by Becky Collis.

Every year I design two Block-of-the-Month patterns, one pieced and one appliqued, on my blog Civil War Quilts. Two years ago we stitched Freedom's Friends. Georgann and Becky won a ribbon at our recent guild show with their version.

Tops are getting finished. Here's Nat Palaski's.
(Unlike some people Nat followed the pattern.)

Rebecca Schnekenburger did two versions.

Deanna Street added more patterns

And our Japanese follower at Thistly Room has solved the inches to meters
conversion problem by using my inch measurements as millimeters.
 (Making for some small blocks.)

Elly VD quilted and bound each block separately,
a "Pot-Holder Quilt."

Post here with links to all 12 free patterns if you want to make one.

  1. Very well done quilts by everyone! Thanks for sharing their work.
    (rootling in the drawer for a ruler...) Wow, that's not even 1/2 size blocks. TINY corners and curves to deal with.
