Friendship Circles….actually there are many other names but that is the name we found and it reflects my friend Jen’s and our friendship.  They are a take off of the Double Wedding ring, using hexagons, triangles and rectangles.

The left picture is where we got our inspiration from Q is for Quilting…a woman named Martha who really likes vintage! Check out her site, so many early 20s, 30s etc patterns on her site.

Cleaning my sewing room…organizing yet again!
