Friends are kind, friends are comforting and friends are patient. Each and every block within the Friendship quilt design represents a special quality found among our friends. This week, we are working on the patient quilt block.
This week, you will only need to make 1 version of the patient quilt block. The block is a basic construction highlighting the applique technique. Let’s take a look.
Patient Quilt Block:
This block uses 2 templates from the Friendship Quilt Templates collection. After tracing the design out, I fused each one to a piece of scrap. To make placement easy, I folded and pressed the base of my block of half; then each section in half again.
Once my guidelines were set it was time to determine applique order.
Since I’m more comfortable with a larger work space than this block measures, I used my quick tip from last week and started to free motion quilted my pieces in place.
It was that easy! Let’s take a look at my finished patient quilt block.
Just like the block name, a quilt along require patience. You need to work at them, spend time with them and be present during the process. For anyone just joining in now, here is more information on the Friendship Quilt Along.
