This month, you will recieve (5) 5″ charms and the solid grey border that will be sewn around them. You will construct them as you did in month one. Please contact Deanna Nagle or your group leads for any additional questions. We will continue to use the pattern provided via email in Month 1.
In Months 1,3,5,7,9,&11 we will create 5 blocks with solid borders. In months 2,4,6,8, &10, you will follow the directions provided in your pdf pattern to cut your charm squares in half and complete just one row of horizontal sashing, no blocks. You should have some peices left over and keep them! You will need them in month 12! Your top sashing row, depending upon your charms, will complete something like this, as will other sashing rows as we continue to move along. Please see your pdf pattern , recieved in month 1 for detailed instruction.

Hi, and welcome to the Kinship Quilters “Spotty” Club Facebook Quilt-Along. It’s not too late to join if you aren’t yet part of this super simple and easy beginner group that uses Kaffe Fassett 5″ charms accented by woven shot cottons to make a fun quilt top in no time. You will learn how to use charms both in focal blocks as well as to form unique complementary sashing in between rows. Simply click here to join now. Or if you are already a member, keep reading….
Group Testers and leaders are Melissa Martin, who has already sewn this project in full, and Mary Beth Kochie, who will complete her blocks and steps ahead of participants. Each is available to be tagged in our Kinship Quilters Facebook Group should you get stuck or come across questions during your journey. Also, group overseer, Deanna Nagle is always available to tag for any questions as we go along.
These months we will only do 5 focal blocks. It’s quite simple. 5 pre-cut charms , 5″ each, as you received in your monthly package and accented on all 4 sides with your woven pale grey Kaffe Fassett shot cotton, as provided. That’s it this month! See? I told you it was easy! See page 2 for instructions on how to create these (5) focal blocks.
THE PICTURE BELOW SHOWS THESE BLOCKS WITH SASHING as the finished quilt top project. WE ARE NOT CREATING THE ACCENT SASHING, JUST A ROW OF (5) BLOCKS framed in grey solid per month (in months 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, & 11), but it will show you a “taste” of the future of your project. Stay Excited.
Thanks for being a part of the fun of all things Kinship Quilters!

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!”
