This summer is zooming by and my Friendship Quilt is really starting to come together. Today, I am sharing pictures and tips of the honest quilt block. This block is easy to make and with a simple fabric addition can take on a whole new look.

This week is all about the honest quilt block in the Friendship Quilt Along. Each block is easy to make and perfect for building your quilting skills.

I love the simplicity of the Friendship Quilt Pattern for summer. It is one of those patterns that you can pick up and stitch just as block at a time without feeling guilty.

Don't be afraid to pull a mixture of fabrics to make your honest quilt block in the Friendship Quilt Along. Remember that each block is designed to help you build your quilting skills.

Even though this block is simple, I want to share a few quick tips to help keep you on track.

The first is don’t be afraid to mix things up! This block can be made with two fabrics or thirteen, the choice is yours. I pulled out 3 different fabrics for each of my blocks.

Each fabric selection allowed me to create a zone in on a color story and create a focal point.

The second tip is to nest your seams! Taking that extra step in pressing and lining up your seams will make all the difference in the overall outlook of your finished quilt.
