Many decades ago, friendship quilts were very popular. Each friend would make a pre-determined block and add their name. The blocks would then be sewn together to form the gift quilt.
I love this friendship quilt made recently by an area nursing home. Each block was hand-embroidered with a friend's name and an embellishment like a flower and the name of each corporate sponsor. It was auctioned off as a fundraiser for the nursing facility.
Friendly thing to do, don't you think?
