A Sneak Peek...

of our "+ and x Friendship blocks"!

Carla and I are so excited by these blocks 

that we could not wait until the end of the month 

to share what we have made.....

And here are the first set of 'twins'!

Ain't they pretty?

My set of four are winging their way to Carla 

as we speak...

And here are my four,

waiting patiently to be joined by Carla's!

It's not too late to join in the fun!

Do you have a friend who you would like 

to swap blocks with?

(or maybe we can do some 'match making' here?)

Lolly Quiltz

You probably don't need to make eight a month...

Maybe six blocks over ten months?

We have set up a Flickr group here 

if you want to share your 'twins' with us....

Or on Instagram with the tag #friendship+andxswap

We will also share our October twins together

again at the end of the month!

Happy sewing!



  1. I just had to catch a glimpse of your friendship blocks for me before I went to sleep and am not disappointed. How fun is this! The "twins" will fit right into the family!! Thank you, friend, your fabrics are so pretty!

  2. You've used such gorgeous fabrics in your blocks!

  3. So pretty Suz. Love those colours.

  4. Those are adorable blocks! I tried putting that hashtag into instagram but I couldn't get the "+" to take -- are those characters allowed in hashtags?
