Upcoming Meeting - June 16th

The next meeting will be Sunday, June 16th at 2:00pm.  The meeting will be at Seams Like Home.

Bring finished and in progress quilting projects for show and tell.  Be inspired to try a new technique or use a new fabric.

Here are a few photos from the Jun 2nd meeting!

love the detail of adding our guild initials - yay PJ!

Current Challenge:
Create a quilt at least 36" x 45" with either green fabric or a pieced word. Or bump up the challenge and make a quilt with both green fabric and pieced words.  Challenge quilts are due in June (or as soon as you can finish them).

Current Charity Quilt Block Projects:

1.  Create a crumb block in a single color way (reds, yellow, blues, purples, greens, pink, etc. - your choice) measuring 12" x 18" finished.  Use big and little scraps and make the block.  If the size is intimidating for a crumb block, consider making six 6" crumb blocks then sewing them together to create the larger block size for the charity quilt.

2.  Using blocks painted by children, create a quilt top that later will be quilted to fleece.
