October Meeting Date – Friday, Oct 12th

The CT Quilters have one mission - We have joined in with the Quilts of Valor Foundation’s efforts to cover all veterans touched by war with a comforting quilt, and we remember that there would be no free United States without those veteran’s honor and sacrifice.
Everyone is invited to join us in working on our various projects - sewing skills are not required.  We have been delighted to welcome new members each month, and we’re waiting for you to join us!

So, what’s on the agenda for the CT Quilters this month?

We have a lot of activities waiting for us that will lead to many more Quilts of Valor:
"    Cut and sew outer borders,
"    Sew bindings – lots of bindings
"    Sew and miter inner border fabric
"    Cut backings from large pieces
"    We still have packages of the right number of blocks all ready to lay out and assemble into our normal design (called the Fourth of July, by Bonnie Hunter),
"    Sew rows together from the previously laid out 4th of July tops
"    Finish up the Country Colors quilt – rotate out volunteers – and start another from aother country colors panel
"    Keep the pre-packaged kit basket full of block parts for home assembly by volunteers; may include cutting pieces or assembling more kits
"    The list goes on:
            like ironing, binding, labeling – eventually they will all be needed …

Friday, Oct 12th is the day.  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).   Hope to see you there!
