Kith and Kin

Leave a comment

When I saw this quilt pattern I knew I wanted to make it for my friend, Jody. Her hobby is geneology and over the years she’s learned a lot about her Irish roots. Through her research she connected with distant cousins, and without ever meeting them she joined them for a trip to Ireland to meet more cousins! Recently she’s  been in the midst of a home renovation project that involves relocation of the kitchen which will result in more square footage overall. The convergence of  ancestry and home expansion seemed a perfect match with this Irish blessing.

I enjoy giving away quilts, and this one was especially fun because there was no special occasion and Jody had no idea I was making it. Sometimes a quilt is just a way to say, to kith or kin, “I’m glad you are part of the fabric of my life”.
