The Kim’s are at it again! GoGo Kim and I are embarking on a sewing adventure to get me through apple season at Lapacek’s Orchard. Anyway, before the summer sun started sizzling, we were deep in block-hunting mode – vintage treasures and modern gems alike! And just like a pop of color in a quilt, the Plaidberry Block (ad) by the amazing Christina from Kindred Quilt Co caught our eyes and captured our hearts! 😍💕 Christina is an absolute gem, letting us play with her block like kids in a fabric store! Starting last Tuesday and all throughout the apple season 🍏🍎 (yep, that’s quite a few Tuesdays), we will put our creative sewing pedal to the metal and stitch up a storm. There was talk of 20-30 blocks depending on fabric and positioning. I’m already considering an on point layout.
Here’s my first block!
Now, let’s talk fabrics, shall we? I’m jazzing up my Plaidberry blocks with fabulous Tilda fabrics (#ad) and my background is a fun ombre (in the metallic accent) of snippets II (ad) from Studio E Fabrics. Definitely a more mellow reading quilt for me but I know exactly the person I’m gifting it to and she’s going to love it! It’s great to mix up your “go tos” so discovering joy in other fabrics – like tilda – can happen! So here’s the plan, dear sewing pals: first, go shower some love on kindredquiltco. She is fabulous and lovely, you can thank me later. Then, mark your calendars – every Tuesday, drop by my instagram feed and Kim’s (@gogokim) to witness the magic unfold, stitch by stitch, seam by seam, and block by block as our quilts grow! Let’s turn this season into a quilted masterpiece, one Plaidberry Block at a time! 🧵🍏 And hey, if all else fails, we’ll still have a blast and many laughs along the way! 🤣 Join the fun, spread the sewing vibes, and let’s quilt ’til we wilt!
If you want to sew along with us feel free to purchase the block HERE (ad) at Kindred Quilt Co’s etsy shop!
