Friendship 360 Quilt Completely Finished

It's hard to believe I started this quilt during the 2016 election year.  That was when a group of us were making Quilty 365 appliqued circle quilts.  Four years and another presidential election cycle later, I am happy to say that my Friendship 360 quilt is finally completely done!


I got the top done in August 2018 (blogged HERE) and in the fall of 2019 sent it off to my local longarm quilter, along with a couple other quilts.


One by one, the quilts were returned to me and I trimmed and bound them.  My circle quilt was the last to come back home in early October.


It's so nice to see a quilt again after it's been away for awhile.  Absence really does make the heart grow fonder.  Sandy did a nice job with the overall quilting design.


I put the binding on it right away and got it on my bed just in time for the first real cold snap this fall.  Waking up in the early morning light to appreciate the colorful variations of individual circles...well, it's just a great way to start the day!


You can read more about the process of making this quilt by clicking the Quilty 365 tag in the sidebar on the right (or HERE).  It's a fun trip down memory lane to skim through those posts.

The sandhill cranes are migrating, and great flocks of them can be seen and heard as they gather together to prepare for their trip south.  What a wonderful sight and sound!


I snapped a picture of this pair preening, during a walk near the marsh in October, around the time I was finishing the Friendship 360 quilt.

  2. I've loved this quilt from when it was just a pile of circles!! So wonderful to see it fully finished. (I can't believe it was made in 2016 either. Where does the time go?)
