Kinship flimsy

I was excited to assemble my Kinship blocks to see if my master color plan worked.  The Kinship QAL is this year's #100Days100Blocks2019 QAL hosted by Angie at GnomeAngel.

I am very happy with this!

In total, I made 13 blocks.  The patterns has blocks that finish 4'' and 8'' which gives you the opportunity to play and create your own layout.  My quilt measures 24'' square.

I created my color plan ahead of time by redrawing the 13 blocks in EQ7 so I could play with layout and color. 

As you can see, I deviated a bit from my original plan.  After all the blocks were made, colors mapping to my plan, I really didn't like the color balance of the blocks in the lower right corner.  So I remade them, retaining just a little bit of the purple.

I want to continue to experiment with quilting and am planning a combination of hand quilting and machine quilting.

This year's event is based on a pattern called Kinship 100 Block Fusion Sampler written by GnomeAngel and Skyberries.  I highly recommend this pattern - the blocks are fun, usual, and the instructions are very well written.  More information here on the overall QAL page. (affiliate link)

Have a wonderful day! Patty
