"The block combines several elements I enjoy...a basic nine patch with improv variations. It uses bits and scraps from friends and myself in Canada for my Florida friends, and is a natural colour combination for February of white with reds and pinks.
I am calling it 'Bits of Friendship'. My modern group at home (Pine Tree Quilters Guild of Muskoka) was keen to share fabric bits with you for this block.
(Mary had a pile available for the taking at the January 13th meeting.) From your stash, add pinks and reds.
Inspiration came from Amanda Jean Nyberg's quilt, Chain of Diamonds, from her book No Scrap Left Behind
Use nine 4.5" white or white-on-white squares. (Kona White was used in our examples.)
Sew the rows together to make a 12.5" block.
