Friendship Ring quilt block

Friendship Ring
March 30, 1933-The Friendship Ring quilt block was also known as Dresden Plate or Broken China in 1933 but the name, Friendship Ring, "recalls quaint practice of pioneer days" writes Nancy in her column on this day, eighty years ago.

The Friendship Ring quilt was "made of new materials collected by friends." Not many quilts in pioneer days were made from new fabric!

 I think it would be fun to collect fabrics from friends to make this quilt!  It would be craziness to make a six inch block though.  There are 20 wedges in Nancy's pattern!

Tomorrow- Handy Andy
