This is my Trixie Friends quilt. It is made from blocks received from women I have met on-line on Trixie Belden message boards. Thirteen Americans and one Australian woman contributed blocks to our swap. We each made a block that somehow related to the Trixie Belden mystery series that we all loved as youngsters. My block is the New York Beauty block in the upper right hand corner. In order to fill in the other 3 spots, I made blocks from scanned illustrations from the books.

I love this quilt because it was made with blocks made by my friends. Some of the blocks were made by women who don’t know how to sew or who had never thought of making a quilt block before. It hangs on the wall at the top of my staircase where I see it every day. And, it reminds me of my dear friends.

Get on over to Amy’s blog and check out the hundreds of other bloggers taking part in the festival.
