Kindred Spirits

The April 15 meeting of the Kindred Spirits quilt club went very well, lots of good show and tell, and a challenging project (with options!) was presented.






Chera wins the prize for the most creative adaption to our monthly pattern (below).

This original project is called the "Pink and Brown Nine Patch" and it's from Kathleen Tracy's book "Small and Scrappy."

We had some other great show and tell as well.



Darlene wowed us with the lamb she made. She has a little dress made of French linen, and of course her coat is wool. The 2 little white buttons actually look like sheep. Great job, Darlene! Ewe get the most fun project award for this month!




Some wonderful churn dashes, and some blocks from a block of the month club. Below is Carol's January and her February projects. She didn't join us until March but was able to get caught up with the group.


Our project for the month of April, due May 13, is a bit of a challenge. It is a 9-patch strippy quilt, with 9-patches that finish at 1.5" square. I get them 2 other options to consider, by upsizing that little 9-patch to one that finishes at 3" square. Stay tuned to find out what the group did!

Till next time, keep stitchin!
