We had another great meeting this weekend! Because of the temperatures, we met in Franklin Mill’s classroom, which blessedly has an air conditioner. We will continue to meet there, until our numbers outgrow the space.
The details of our Row by Row challenge were discussed, and I will be posting about those separately. To summarize though, use at least 3 rows, anyway you want (can chop it up into blocks, rearrange, make larger, smaller, etc). Quilt top does NOT need to be quilted to be entered.
Next meeting (August 23) Sarah will be teaching a paper piecing demo using Economy Blocks. This is a super simple block to learn paper piecing with, and is a great opportunity to use some of those cute novelty prints most of us can’t resist. After the demo, we can all go home and make lots and lots more for our Economy Block Swap in October! I’ll post a reminder for the August meeting, along with a list of what to bring, in a week or so. But, if you want to start mentally preparing, you can find out more about Economy Blocks here.
Now onto the good stuff!
Ann showed off some work she had scanned and printed on different materials. I have the flyer if your interested in more details, and I’ll bring a few copies to the next meeting.
The pattern Jennifer used is called Seville, by Cluck Cluck Sew. Its a very fat quarter friendly quilt, if you’re in need of more quilts on your “make” list.
The pattern Lindell is using for her shower curtain quilt can be found in the recent issue of Modern Patchwork. Though I’m not sure if a shower curtain is what the pattern designer had in mind, but it will definitely turn out great!
After show and tell, we had a little bit of “forced socialization.” And snacks, of course.
See everyone in August!!!!!
