The CT Quilters-Quilts of Valor Group will be meeting again next week. Please plan to join us at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop. You can pick your favorite QOV projects to work on, or just show up and we’ll find a spot for you doing something that you will enjoy. Don’t forget, sewing skills are not required. There are lots of ways you can contribute to the making of a Quilt of Valor without sewing!
What’s likely to be going on this month:
Ø A top is expected back in that will need borders sewn on,
Ø We have two packages of the right number of blocks all ready to lay out and assemble into our normal design (called the Fourth of July),
Ø We will need to sew the rows together of the quilt tops mentioned above,
Ø We will continue work on the quilt in country colors (an alternative design),
Ø We will check on the status of the kit blocks that have been returned – sew up some blocks (either A’s or B’s) if needed and assemble more packages ready to be laid out into quilt tops,
Ø We will monitor the status of the pre-packaged kits to be set out in the Shop – possibly cut and assemble more kits if required,
Ø We will have a lot of cutting to do, especially white (light) squares,
Ø We will make up some pillowcases for presentation packages,
Ø And – the usual disclaimer à whatever else comes up! (like ironing, binding, labeling – eventually they will all be needed)
So, as Pat says “we will need some rotary cutters, some sewing machines and some chocolate” (Pat is so eloquent and inspirational, too!).
Be sure and put Friday, Sep 14th on your calendars right now.
We will be meeting from 10:00 – 2:00 at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop (click on the link here or on the sidebar for address, phone and directions). We’re always happy to see both new and old faces – so come on by and get in on the fun for a wonderful cause!
