The challenge was that the quilt needed to be finished in six days when my husband was leaving to Nova Scotia to be with her for a week.
We quickly decided on a pattern (friendship star), and pulled cream neutrals from Mary's stash for the background and a set of batiks from mine for the stars. We each sewed 10 blocks, and then came back together to add sashing, assemble the quilt top, piece together a backing, and pin baste the quilt. Mary quilted it, and I made the binding and machine sewed that to the front of the quilt. We both worked on hand-sewing the binding to the back. Great teamwork that resulted in a beautiful quilt, finished in time!
