We are planning an exciting Quilts of Valor meeting this month – and it’s only one week away! My, how times flies. We will have time for some of our normal activities (see below) and then we will have a special demonstration of an easy Quilt-As-You-Go technique. You won’t want to miss this meeting!
We will meet as usual at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop on
Racetrack Rd on Friday, March 15th at 10:00. Everyone is welcome to attend – no sewing skills required.
Ø We will be having some quilt tops and some quilted quilts coming in, so we will need to:
Ø Iron and prepare a few backings,
Ø Machine sew on bindings of quilted quilts,
Ø Hand sew bindings if time permits,
Ø Cut fabrics into blocks for kits including light colors,
Ø Make up more block kits to keep the basket full,
Ø Prepare labels for at least 2 quilts,
Ø Possibly sew rows for a quilt top,
Ø And that ever popular category – Misc!
When we stop for our lunch/snack break, we will reconfigure the tables and Pat will begin the QAYG presentation using a serger. This technique is just as easy when using a sewing machine, so we expect you will want to try it yourself no matter what machine you use! We will have batting available if you want to give it a go.
Circle March 15th on the calendar right now … see you there!
