Friendship Quilts Blog Hop

Welcome!  Diane asked me to join her in the Friendship Quilt Blog Hop and I couldn't refuse.

We are all designing a little project that resembles those fun string friendship bracelets we used to make back in the 80s (or 90s!). 

For my project I combined two tutorials.  The first was Diane's for the friendship bracelet piecing and the second was for a cute medium sized pouch by Noodlehead.  I pulled out a red, aqua and grey fat eighth bundle and got to work.  Here's the pouch I made!!

I'm sending this off to my wonderful friend and cousin Libby!  She is such a smart awesome girl who just started a graduate program at Wake Forest.  Who doesn't need a new pouch for a new school year?! We used to spend a week together every summer and were pen pals too!  I'm so happy to be sharing this with her!

Lastly, since friendship bracelets were so popular in the 80s Diane asked us to share a picture of ourselves from the 80s.  I'm not positive the year but I do believe this is circa summer of '89 or 90'. 

A big thank you to Diane for organizing this fun hop and to everyone else who is sharing!  Be sure to follow along and start getting ready for the link-up later on!
