On a very wild and wet night we had quite a good turn out!
Show and Share:
Lynn shared her Row by Row, Jungle themed quilt from another group. Suzi shared her lavendar and gray themed baby quilt. Another Sarah Bond quilt finish! Mario's finished quilt. Julie's quilt had a very 1930's vibe to me, love those colors! Plus a sunny sunflower quilt!
Then we had some Member Demonstrations. Madelyn showed us the "Curve Master" foot for ease in piecing curved seams like Drunkards Path blocks (I think several people ordered from Amazon them on the spot!), Mario talked about different strategies for Half Square Triangles, and Carol gave an intro and a parts list for Manx Quilting that we will learn more about at our November meeting. Don't worry, a digital version of the handout will be included in the next newsletter!
I hope everyone had a lovely summer!
We kicked off our 2019-2020 season with a great first meeting. In August we had Sarah Bond teach her "Strips and Stripes" workshop which was very well attended and a great class! Several of our show and shares were blocks and one whole quilt already made up! Check them out below.
Show and Share:
We have Louise who spent an estimated 450 hours! on her adorable thread painting, Mario who submitted his black and white mini quilt to a Curated Quilts magazine challenge, and a quilt for the Make Modern Magazine 5th anniversary. Cindy and her square from Sarah Bond's class, Suzi with some baby giftst, Susie with her Sarah Bond block. Deborah with her Sarah Bond quilt! and check out the quilting on the back! Maureen brough her completed Trinket by Allison Glass quilt and Robert brought several gift quilts!
Next, our past president, Kim Soper, gave a very informative talk on "How to Use Envy to Become a Better Quilter". It spawned several very interesting discussions amongst the group. Thank you Kim!
We also announced the 2019 "Challenging Fabric Quilt Challenge!" (Check out the header image of this post!)
