Recently, Kathy at Kindred Quilts made one of the quilts from this book and I commented that I, too, owned the book, loved her quilt and she should consider making every quilt in the book. :-)
She said, "I will if you will" LOL
I thought about it for as long as it took me to snap my fingers and said, "yes, let's do it".
We exchanged a few e-mails about the details and decided that every other month would be a perfect. There are 20 quilts in the book so this could take awhile - LOL.
I thought it would be fun to invite ALL of you to join us in the fun and Kathy agreed!

Simply Charming by Tara Lynn Darr
I couldn't post about our endeavor without making one of the quilts.
I cut and pieced my first mini today - I haven't played with reproduction fabrics in ages. I'd forgotten how well they 'play together'. I was smiling all day.
I felt like I was channeling Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts - she makes the best quilts using reproduction fabrics.
All the quilts in the book are fabulous and Tara's directions are terrific.
I couldn't post about our endeavor without making my first quilt. I kept flipping the pages trying to decide which mini to make first. Sigh - talk about a tough decision.
I finally decided I'd start with the first quilt in the book, "Granny's Scrap Box".
Kathy and I would love it if you'd join us in February with your first "Simply Charming" mini quilt.
Kathy plans to add a link so you can link up your blog and share your mini.
We want this to be all about fun....no stress, no competition, no real commitment (if you want to play that's fine and if you don't that's fine, too)
A mini quilt every other month in 2013 means 6 mini quilts by the end of the year.
Doesn't get any better than that! :-)
I wish you pieceful days.
