FQBH: More Inspiration

Quilting for a Cause

I'm sorry for the lack of posts this week regarding the blog hop! I had some fun stuff planned, but I've been so sick and spent the last week+ on the couch or in bed... and well, it didn't happen. So is life. (the apology is that I hope I didn't let anyone down with kind of a bummer last week... otherwise, blogging is awesome, but life comes first.) Otherwise I've still had so much fun this month!! I hope you have too!

This month has gone by at lightning speed it seems and I can't believe that tomorrow is already the last day to link up your projects!!

As I was planning this blog hop, and since then, I've seen so many other projects and patterns, that although they might not have been inspired by friendship bracelets, I think they definitely have some good similarities to them! I wanted to share some of these with you in case you might need a little more inspiration to get you started! :)

How about this?! Actual friendship bracelets in a quilt. :) Kristy found this one and shared it with me.
You can find this pattern on Craftsy here, by Not Your Run of The Mill

I really love this bracelet design. It would make a fun Valentine's table runner.

This project is one I found on Craftsy here, by Cadmancreations
This could be a fun one to paper piece.

I saw Katie of Swim, Bike, Quilt working on this one a while ago and LOVE it!
Helix Quilt--in progress
HST's are So versatile! How great!!
This pattern is called Helix by The Tulip Patch and you can find it on Craftsy here.
Doesn't this look so much like a Friendship Bracelet design?!

How about these Cashmere Cuffs from The Purl Bee? They look so soft!

I love the simple colors and simple design. A great idea for a low-value quilt.
You can find the blog post here.

Ok, with one more day left, maybe this will help give you the extra push you need to finish up your projects, or start one! ;) (p.s. the odds are looking PRETTY good for winnings something right now...  so get to work!! lol.) ;)

if you're new to the blog hop, you can find all the details here. Link up your projects here. Link up your 80's photos here (this linky closes on Sunday night.)
All prizes will be announced on Monday!

  1. I love the Helix quilt - have just finished cutting fabrics to make a baby quilt for one of my husband's co-workers using that pattern. But you are right - it does look like a friendship bracelet!
