Kindred Spirits--May 2016

Here's what happened at our May Kindred Spirits meeting.

We had a Split Decision (top) made into a table runner, 
and a Split Decision who didn't want to be split (Charlotte)! 
Followed by a Chasing Friends upsized by Tammy.

We have some Orange Peel rows coming together. Charlotte's has puppy paws fabric, and Celestia's is made of all purple 30's fabrics. Great job, ladies!
Our next row will be a row of Posies. They will alternate a strip of fabric either above the posie or below it. So cute!

Pam's double 4-patch is made with lots of polka dots 
and the cutest flip-flops for the borders.

Miscellaneous projects include the old favorite, Spools. 

Chera brought a commissioned quilt she made out of some ties (above),
and she showed her exquisite hexi quilt, below. Fabulous job, Chera!

And here are some walker bags I made for my 96-year old mom. 
I'm so proud of her! She's doing great, and her walker bags are excellent conversation starters at her retirement home. The top one is made with 
Bingo card fabric, The middle one has pink flamingos (she lives in Florida) 
and the bottom one has Lorelei's nurses. (Mom is a retired nurse.) I was
able to spend Mother's Day with her and my Florida family.

Here's the EQ drawing of our Double 4-Patch.
This quilt is designed to be made with charm packs or mini charm packs.

I hope you enjoyed the show!
Till next time, keep stitchin.
