Circle of Friends!

Secret sewing project number 3 was for a special couple who needed some comfort and hope during a tough time.

A group of us got together to make blocks, which the generous and talented Susie then pieced, quilted, embroidered and bound, to produce this beautiful quilt called 'Circle of Friends':

Susan embroidered the names of all the contributors onto the back:

How cool is that!!!

The block we all made was this one:

We actually made a couple of blocks each, but for the life of me I can't find the photo of the other one I made!!

And there were enough blocks leftover for a matching cushion:

Cindy and Brian have now received their snugglies, and are delighted with them. 

I just want to say a huge thank you to Susie for the hours & talent spent pulling this wonderful project together. You can read more about this project here on Susan's blog, with more wonderful pictures to view!
