Hands of Friendship

Hands of Friendship
One of the most special people in your life will be your best friend. Friends are a necessity in life -- to share all those laughable times and those sad times too. Friends are there for all those important life events. So on that segue, how about a look at the quilt block Hands of Friendship?

This quilt block is a nine patch block made with simple shapes -- the half square triangle and the flying geese units. Perhaps there is a future quilt here just waiting to be created for your best friend.

And now for some quotes about friendship ... and from a variety of sources
