Upcoming Sewing Saturday
Aug 15 - Charity Quilt and Library Quilt Assembly Day
Library quilt is a bookshelf quilt - bring in assorted strips of fabric scraps. Black background so the strips should be bright and light colors.
For the houses quilt, we’ll need random green squares/strips/etc for the grass as well as random light blues for the sky. We can even assemble different light blue blocks into the sky or green blocks for the grassy areas. We currently do not have enough house blocks to make the house quilt. We need more house blocks.
The next library quilt change will be the beginning of August. Madison Station Quilt Guild will be hanging this time. We will do a joint display for November and December.
Demo by Diane - Diane demonstrated how to use wood, rulers, magazines to get flat seams. The wood did the best job. She also demonstrated how to use the wood to get rid of pressing mistakes.
We would like to make some new ornaments for the tree this year.
Please make an ornament or two each month to decorate the tree.
We can start a Pinterest board for quick yet attractive ornament ideas and begin in July.
We will also need an artificial tree to use and Diane is checking to see if we can use one of here's.
