For all the many ways people are instantly connected today, from Smartphones to satellite dishes, it's amazing how many still feel a certain disconnect from their neighbors and from the institutions that used to bind us all. Patchwork Among Friends recognizes this basic need quilters have for human contact, and it offers ideas for how to effect that: everything from classes (with or without a teacher), setting parties, varying kinds of exchanges, to friendship quilts and quilts for a particular cause, and reveal parties. And all these social opportunities can be improved with the right potluck recipe! It's always better among friends!
