Heart of Friendship by Helen Shrimpton

Heart of Friendship

I wanted to design an afghan with a large central square and then also smaller ones to surround it, using elements of the central square for the smaller ones and for the border.

Everything I create has meaning, it’s not just a bunch of stitches, there is a purpose and a significance or symbolic meaning behind my designs.

You can read the story behind my design here.
