Friendship Quilt Along Block 9 ~ Empathetic

#BestBuds #BestFabricFriends #friendshipQAL

Amanda outdid herself with this quilt. As I've made each block, different friends have come to mind. I think I can count myself as lucky to have the friends I do. I hope you all know how much I appreciate you!

Since there were four of these blocks, I wanted to make sure they were all a little different from one another. This is how I set up making one block using a variety of  fabrics. And the Ruby Ruler from Wisecraft really came in handy for getting the contrast in value just right.

For the stems, I like to use Best Press for extra body. I press the strips toward the center in thirds. The Roxanne's Glue -Baste-It comes in handy to lightly glue the layers in place, and to attach the stem to the background before it's sewn down.Getting close!!

Be sure to visit Amanda's blog for the free pattern and details on assembly. I hope you stop by next week to see twhat I'm up to!
