Month 11 / Club 10 / HST : Photo Helps

Thank you , again, to our Kinship Quilter’s Top Tester, Chiquita Wylie, for providing these tutorial photos in the berry sundae colorway. This is for the Kinship Quilter’s Club 10 Half-Square Triangles BOM Club, Month 11.

Club 4 / Months 1,3,5,7,9,&11 Instructions

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.

Melissa Martin, our main group leader and tester, is also an original Kinship Quilters Facebook Group  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
