Shappley Quilt Club
Happy New Year Quilt Club. Our next meeting is Saturday January 13 from 9-11. We will be making design boards.
Just a heads up for winter weather. I live in Marion, AR and do not drive in ice and snow, especially across the bridge. Please hope for good weather Saturday. If it is sunny, cloudy or rain only, I will be there. If weather is bad, I will call Shappleys. Current prediction is rain Friday and sunny Saturday.
For design boards, you will need jelly roll strips and liquid glue to wrap the board and will use glue to attach edges of batting as needed if you brought board early. If bring board to class, liquid glue will work just great.
In February we will be mitering borders on a sample piece. Instructions on the piece will be given in class. In March, we will practice binding mitered corners on that piece. Maximum size of sample before borders 9x14” and minimum 10x10”.
We will use jelly rolls for your borders. I suggest you have at least 2 borders to learn to match seams for a frame like appearance. If you want pre instructions to have piece ready for mitering, feel free to bring to class.
If you need me or have a question:

Looking forward to seeing you in December.
