Quilt Club

Time: 9:00 am-11pm

Held on the second Saturday of every month, at Shappley Sew & Vac Inc.

Everyone is welcome!

 

We would like to start Quilt Club back on 2nd Saturday of the month from 9-11, please. If I loaned a ruler at last meeting, please bring so we can use in this project. Show and tell is highly encouraged, by pic or actual item. 

 

November 12

 

We hope to welcome back all our friends and see some new faces to restart Quilt Club. We have a vast variety of skills from beginner to high level intermediate. Since neither Alex Anderson nor Marianne Fons claim to be expert, I think I would not like to define what that takes. There are no Quilt Police, but we offer friendly help to the best of our abilities. 

 

Our first return project will be hot pads, pot holders, and/or mug rugs ( depends on personal speed and choice to do homework).

 

I have scraps  (bags and bags) which I will bring as well as patterns and batting. You will need to bring machine, thread and other sewing supplies. 

 

December 10

 

We will use burrito method to make pillowcases. You will need fabric in addition to machine and sewing supplies. You will use lots of pins or clips. Pre starching fabric will be beneficial, but not required. 

 

Fabric requirements are all width of fabric (wof):

 

standard size #1 27”, #2 9” optional #3 2”

King size #1 30-32”, #2 10-12”, optional #3 2”

 

It does not take long to make them and I suggest you bring fabric for 2 to have matching pair. 

 

Starting in January, we will do BOM (block of month). If group wants, we can do both easy and intermediate block each month. Betty has submitted one for January, so bring pics of quilts/blocks you are interested in doing, please. I like to make a sample before class, so we will start with Betty’s beautiful choice. I plan to bring her choice with fabric requirements to December class to prepare for January. 

 

I hope all are well and that we have a full house when we return!
