Remember that Lecien bundle I’ve been teasing you with for a few weeks?  Well I’ve been using it to work on my part for the fabulous Friendship Quilt Along, by Amanda Herring, that launches today!

Every Friday there will be a new block posted by a number of different artists who will each show their take on the block and their tips and techniques on how to make it.

I’m a bit ahead of the game at the moment as my block doesn’t actually roll around until the 27th of July, but I was a good Girl Guide and am (almost) always prepared!  As an aside I should tell you that each of the block has a ‘feeling’ name, which led to a rather amusing conversation with my mother on Wednesday night as I tried to trace templates while I talked to her and had lost my Empathy and Patience.  If you join in, you too can have ridiculous chats with your relatives ;o)

You can find out more about the QAL at Amanda’s blog here and watch out for progress from some of your favourite artists on their blogs and on Instagram.
