Pieces In The Garden - Friendship Stars


These Friendship Stars are the blocks for the second row of Pieces In The Garden, a sew-along hosted by Melva of Melva Loves Scraps. This sew-along is based on the story of Melva's maternal grandmother, Tressie Teegarden. Click on the button in my sidebar for more information. It isn't too late to join in!

After the challenge of the Bow row (see this post), the Friendship Stars were a breeze! 

As you can see I am mainly using blues and yellows. These colors of the Ukrainian flag
honor the courage and strength of the Ukrainian people amid devastation.

Here are both rows. The Bow blocks were inspired by the hair bows worn by Tressie, and the Friendship Stars represent the childhood friendships she enjoyed. Melva's stories are quite entertaining, and even if you don't join in the sew-along, you will enjoy her posts.
