Designed for clubEQ challenge for February, 2016.

I was gifted a set of hand-pieced Friendship Link blocks made of vintage 30s fabrics. The piecing of the block has intrigued me as well as the drafting of it. I solved the drafting mystery with this challenge exercise by creating a 5-grid on-point drafting template to use as a guide.

The colors of this quilt don’t work with my 30s blocks, so I’ll tweak color placement when I piece the coordinating blocks and border. 30s pastels will be quite a contrast to this more contemporary colorway!
