August Meeting - August 27th


Hope you can join us on Monday, August 27th at 6:30pm at University Center.  We will be meeting at the tables near the main entrance (across from Sadler's)

Bring any completed or in progress projects you've been working on.

If you are participating in the bee - bring your completed blocks for Kristin.  Carrie will have patterns for her bee blocks.  

If you've completed any blocks for our next charity quilt in film noir colors, bring them along.  Make a block 12" finished (12 1/2" unfinished size) in black, white, gray and small pops of color.  You have 3 months to complete a block by the October meeting to be entered in the drawing for the fun prize (it includes a gift certificate to a quilt shop).


Kristin and Carrie pieced the citrus blocks together for a beautiful top and also pieced a backing with fabrics from Carol.  They'll pass on the top and back to PJ for quilting.

July Meeting Recap

At our July meeting all of our citrus blocks for our charity quilt were gathered together and we laid out the quilt top.   We ended up with 20 blocks!!


Kristin won the jelly roll.  Below is our visitor Halie drawing a name from the basket.



The next charity quilt will have a theme of 'film noir'.  Make a block 12" finished (12 1/2" unfinished size) in black, white, gray and small pops of color.  You have 3 months to complete a block by the October meeting to be entered in the drawing for the fun prize (it includes a gift certificate to a quilt shop).

We had a great show and tell with wonderful quilts and works in progress.





For those participating in the quilt bee - Kristin brought the patterns for her blocks with half-square triangles in neutrals in brights.  Blocks are due at the August meeting.  If you need a copy of the pattern, let us know.
