Come on down no 3

No 3 pretty pink/pastals started life from a Fat 1/4 birthday swap.................clearly I asked to soft and pretty..........gorgeous fabrics I received............
Here are most of the fabrics when I received them.....good memories.......only a couple of the girls blog now...........
I just can't find the post with the blocks............I know I'll look in my blog book from 2009..........I know I was thinking of using pink chenille with the blocks..........ok looked and only found a post that showed a glimpse of them finished in June 2010 blocks were made and I took them on a retreat but clearly did nothing with them.......
this is what I started with today - blocks that needed to be squared off at 14.5in..........
DOES ANYONE KNOW THE BLOCK NAME?
I decided it needed sashing and cornerstones............
found that in the stash............I think it from Aster Manor...........
initially I was only adding sashing to the inside then the border but I decided it needed them all the way around too..............before the border...............
Love this border print............found it in the stash too..............
Needed another thin border of the cornerstone fabric before the final border..............
LOVE IT.............
%%%
Needs a name..............help.........any ideas????
%%%
Decided looking at all these old projects I sucked at putting details in quite a few of them........so it's a bit of a mystery what I was thinking at the time..............
there are scraps from cutting these blocks but no idea where they are...........lol.............
This was to post last night but I fell asleep while typing it.............
Anyway suns not up and I am in the chookshed......it's a beautiful cool moring which will not last long enough....36 today..........soon as I hit publish I will be baking Pie...........Blueberry pie to be exact..........it's coming along very well............wait til I well you how long it's been baking for.........scared myself............
%%%%%
Anyone keen for a Fat 1/4 birthday swap..........Aussies only...........too expensive to send too many parcels  over seas........2 fat quarters only needed in the package............nothing else at all...........are you interested?????
Catch you later.....

  2. Gtreat Quilt....I’m going to think of it as Blueberry Pie....the cornerstones are the blueberries and the borders are the crust so that will be my suggestion lol!

  5. OH yes I do love this pink one--I think the word 'Friendship' should be in the name as you said you got the fat quarters from friends!!!
    bet that pie came out great--I think I could smell it all the way over here in the US!!
    enjoy the moments, di

  8. I am not very creative naming things - but I do like Michelle's Friendship kisses.
    I'll join the swap if its kept to just fat quarters - some swaps get over the top with the extra bits.
    I'd love some blueberry pie too - can you send some??
    good to see you sre making the mot of "your" time.

  12. This block reminds me of one called Whirlwind. There is a tutorial for it here: https://www.sewcanshe.com/blog/2016/4/29/classic-blocks-fresh-fabric-the-whirlwind-quilt-block
    Maybe that might help you with a name?

  13. Friendship Kisses is a really clever name for it. I can’t believe what a difference the sashing and especially the peeper border make to the quilt. It has turned out a treat.
