Louise H. recently shared with the members the blanket she and her her friends wove a Friendship blanket number of years ago. Twelve participants chose a colour for the weft, and used a common warp colour. Each also chose a different design to weave. Skeins of weft were exchanged and each weaver wove the design square of her choosing in the colours of her friends. Squares were then exchanged and enough were available to each person to construct a blanket. A few years ago I believe I remember Maureen C. sharing her yet to be assembled squares. Louise’s finished project is a thing of beauty. The overshot patterns are classic. Louise finished her blanket with crochet in her weft colour. Many thanks for sharing such a treasure with us.
Jenny O. was reminded of a similar project she was involved with in Ontario many years ago and has kindly allowed us to make a copy of her instructions portfolio. A copy of this will be placed in the Guild records for possible future projects.
