Linda and I have been to many quilt shows and lectures together and we both seem to gravitate toward the same jewel tone colors. In fact we have dubbed ourselves the "Jewel Tone Gals", so I knew that we could agree on what fabrics to use for our Buddy quilts.
We picked this bright Gingko leaf fabric for our focus fabric, along with a coordinating green and blue.
The buddy quilt pattern was basically a Card Trick block, set on point, and surrounded with a Garden Maze sashing. The class was a lot of laughs as we each created our units and then swapped them when we were done. No one actually got their whole top assembled by the end of the day, but Linda went home and finished working on hers. Here is her completed quilt:
And here is mine:
Guess I've got some catching up to do.
Linda used her leftover fabrics from the Buddy quilt to make a tote that she calls her "Buddy Tote".
I could learn a lot from Linda. Everybody should have a quilt buddy like her.
