Monthly Book Club Schedule

Welcome to our first Kinship Quilters Book Club! This year we are going through the book entitled 100 Modern Blocks : Tula Pink’s City Sampler  by the legendary fabric designer Tula Pink. We will use 100% Kaffe Fassett  Collective classics fabric and Kaffe Fassett woven shot cottons. The only exception to this will be for a few folks who requested a “substitute prints” option and  / or a non-KFC fabric option (you know who you are).

Journeying through this book this year will revolutionize your quilting craft. I’ve no doubt that you will not only learn 100 modern block designs but also use Tula’s recommendations to form your own designs as we go along and also to name your blocks yourself in the journal she provides, finishing the quilt in one of many suggestions that she gives at the end.

We will operate within the following schedule for this book and you will receive cuts of fabric to accomplish these goals each month.

This group will finish approx. (6-9) 6.5″ finished quilt blocks per month according to the schedule listed above, completing 100 total from end of February 2016-end of February 2017 in one full year. Here are some completed examples from Melissa Martin’s fabric testing over the recent winter months below.

Deanna Nagle finished the entire book this summer, before deciding it needed to be within our group schedule this year. She completed the 100 blocks as a single mom, with very little time on her hands, and as moderator full-time of this group. She did not use Kaffe Fassett fabric everywhere, however. This book was a chance for her to operate outside of her comfort zone so she mixed many designer prints as well as masculine and nature-inspired prints. She created at least 30 more block designs from her leftover scraps and has more to come. Her album can be seen on her personal Facebook page under photos , then albums. The album is entitled 100 Modern Blocks if you would like to see her summer journey.

Please post questions directly to your group leaders, Deanna Nagle or Melissa Martin, via our Kinship Quilters Facebook Group forum at any point along our journey. Both have sewn these blocks and can aid you if you get stuck along the way. Deanna Nagle, is founder of the Kinship Quilters Facebook Group and sews to keep her sanity in Fort Mill, SC.

Melissa Martin, our main group leader in the Book Club is also an original and veteran member and master quilter with a passion for her craft.

Here’s Melissa’s bio on herself as related to quilting and this group, in her own words: “I’m 36, and live in Rush City, Minnesota. I have 3 kids (6 with my fiancé and I together lol). I have been quilting for 3 years. Last year was my first time participating in a BOM group at all!  It was fun and exciting to see what was coming each month, and I loved the end results!”melissa martin headshot
