June Kindred Spirits Meeting

I've managed to fall behind with my Kindred Spirit posts, so I will attempt to get caught up this week. We had a great show-n-tell in June for our meeting, and I will let the photos speak for themselves.

The photo above is Celestia's row-by-row "Strawberries" done in purple 30s fabrics, and the next row called "pinwheels". Our new project will be a 2-month quilt called "Two Way Street." I've laid my rows out on the green fabric that will be the borders. (My quilt will measure about 16 x 18 inches) Anne super-sized her blocks and made them out of multiple blue fabrics. I love it, Anne! Nice job!

Tammy made a special quilt for a special co-worker who is retiring. She loves to can her garden produce, so Tammy's choice is wonderfully appropriate. I feel very strongly about signing our quilts, so wanted you to see her label on the back. Easy to do, yet it documents the who, the why and the when. Simply use a pen that is safe for fabrics, and include the information on a label on the back of your quilt.

Fannie showed off a beautiful pillow she made using French General fabrics. Nice job, Fannie.

A double 4-patch in red fabrics made by Pat, a great flag quilt made by Charlotte, Pat, is that your sheep? I can't remember! And I'm sorry, I didn't write down who made the landscape quilt....let me know please!

And last but not least, one of my favorite quilt patterns, ever! I was going to pass this pattern onto someone because I thought I'd never get to it, so Pam took it on as a project, and I just love what she did with it. I have put it back onto my "must do someday" list. Great job, Pam!

Thanks for stopping by, and till next time, keep stitchin!
