Another great guild meeting for the month of February. So many wonderful quilts, conversations and projects.
Japanese Quilt Demo
Jen shared the Sashiko quilting method from Japan and the origin of the form.
Arigatō to all of you who where there to listen. Here is the finished tortoise shell that was shared in the demo.
RECAP OF FEBRUARY MEETING
Vignette Stitches Club: Magazines are available if you need to borrow one. Please speak to Beth.
Charity Quilts UPDATE:
More wonderful charity quilts were finished by Janet and Kelly and sent to the wonderful ladies who will be binding them.
Thank you also to Trish for making the lovely labels. We were able to send another one to a good home thanks for the suggestion from Betty.
Next Instalment of Charity Work: Be ready for MARCH (sorry about dropping the ball in Feb).
Idea #1: If you wish to participate, you would contribute a rectangle block/panel of some sort. Each round a border would be added all the way around – like a round robin. These would be made into a quilt.
Idea #2: Using an orphan block we would add to it until it became a placemat (13″x17″).
In MARCH bring your orphan panel or rectangle/block to guild and the next round will be decided. Remember to leave a 1/4″ seam allowance around the block/panel.
* Meals on Wheels for the placemat (13″x17″)
* Neo Natal Quilts: 30″x30″. Need a pocket on the back to fit a 4″x6″ photograph
