Y2K Quilt In The Making...Using 3" Squares
This is a quilt being made for the Year 2000 (2nd Millennium)
I am swapping fabric with online quilters around the world.  We swap 25 different fabrics in 3" or 2.5" size and 1 signature square the same size.  In order to make the 2000 quilt I have to swap with 80 people.  This is really fun and you enjoy getting mail and even the bills can't get you down! LOL
So far I have sent and received over 65 for my 3" and 12 for my 2.5".   Bellow you will find the pattern and squares for the 3" size and if you want to see what I am doing for my 2.5" size click here!

Well... This has been a challenge.  My husband and I have looked at the below star pattern and tried to make it work.  After 3 hours of scratch paper being thrown in a heap... he finally came up with a pattern that would not take anything away from the signature squares.  He then came up with the idea of using the above flowers (Friendship Flower) made from Yo-yo's in the shape of a heart (Friendship Heart) around the boarder of the quilt.  The very center will have signature squares with a circle (Friendship Circle) pattern of Yo-yo's around them.

The entire quilt will be 80 signature squares with the flower, heart or circle design and with 56 squares to shape the diamonds between the signature squares.  All together there will be 32 Friendship Hearts, 8 Friendship Wreaths and 40 Friendship Flowers... The total size of the quilt will be a little smaller than a king size or just at a king size depending on what I do with the outside boarder(s).
