The next meeting of the Quilts of Valor - CT Quilters Group will be on Friday, July 6th, at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop. We have a variety of projects in the works and there will be something for everyone to do, whether you can sew or not!
We plan to:
¨ Continue working on the design and layout of the quilt in patriotic country colors,
¨ Layout blocks into quilt tops for our normal design; it's a Bonnie Hunter pattern called the Fourth of July and we now have 5 packages of the right number of blocks all ready to lay out and assemble!,
¨ Sew rows of the quilt tops mentioned above,
¨ Cut red star fabric into squares,
¨ Make up some more “A” block kits,
¨ Sew up some of the “B” block kits since the A’s have been very popular recently,
¨ Make up some pillowcases for presentation packages,
¨ And, as always, whatever else comes up (like ironing, binding, labeling – eventually they will all be needed)!
Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend. Bring your sewing machine if you’d like to sew.
The meetings are always such a good time and it's for such a good cause. We meet from 10:00 – 2:00 at Crafty Threads Quilt Shop and we take a break for lunch. There’s usually a group that walks to a restaurant (very close by), or you can plan to bring a lunch, or just stop by to say hello and see what we’re all about! Every week we have new members and we’d love to see YOU there.
