      Judy Ray will give a presenation on Creative Backings for Your Quilts.
    • Why? Why not?! Using one fabric is certainly the easiest and quickest (if not cheapest) backing, but seriously, ladies…. We will talk about reasons for not using one vast expanse of a single fabric for your quilt backing - as well as when it might be a good idea. We will also cover techniques and constraints in designing your quilt backing. Think about the quilt backs you have made over the years, and please bring any of your great ideas and quilts to share with the group.

    • May Day Meeting/Workshop - Wednesday, May 16, 2018, 10am-3pm, Interpretive Center at the Transfer Station
      Karen Powers will conduct a workshop on Playing with Fabric Scraps.
    • Using your fabric scraps and perhaps trading scraps with others, let's create our own unique fabric to create fabulous blocks and borders. I like to use strips in the following widths: 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 2", and 2 1/2". The length of the strips can vary.

      Got some leftover triangles or unused binding? Bring those, too! Totally scrappy? Monochromatic? Lights? Darks? Complimentary colors? Lots of options.

      If you would like to join the fun in May, start saving and prepping your fabric strips now. Hope you will join us!

      Note: Bring a lunch and we will have our business meeting during our break from noon to 1 pm.
