Quilt of Valor Workshop

28 06 2015
Quilts of Valor Workshop❗️❗️  🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸      ⏰   It’s finally time!
Thursday, July 9, 10:00-4:00pm.  Main Street Community Center, 255 Park Ave, Amherst.
I have received a donation of fabric from the generous folks at The Original Sewing & Quilt Expo ! Now I need your help in putting together some tops for  Quilts of Valor that will be sent off to the Cincinnati VA women’s group that we’ve sent to the past couple of years.  I’m hoping several tops can be made from this donation and added to the quilts from the June workshop with Joanne Hubbard. Ten tops will be needed in all & will go out in September. If you have some time to donate please email me and let me know you’re coming so I can organize and plan better how to use what I received. Sewers and pressers and cutters of fabric will be needed. Bring sewing machines, cord, irons and mats and a happy heart! We’re sure to have a great time as in the past…’s been a while!
Thursday, July 9, 10:00-4:00pm.  Main Street Community Center, 255 Park Ave, Amherst. (It’s the old post office bldg) Brown bag lunch or dine downtown…. there’s several choices.

Quilt Frame

Update: Frame has been spoken for

I have a quilt frame with 2 sets of rails  one approx. 5′ and the other approx 8′.   Free to a good home; I don’t do much hand quilting any more.

Fifty States Fat Quarter Exchange

19 05 2015

Would any 49 of you want to do a 50–count, em, 50–states fat quarter exchange at the Christmas Potluck? We could draw a state out of a container, order a fat quarter from that state, and then at the Potluck participants could pick a state at random out of another container.

Of course this would be easier for the people who go on the Michigan or Shipshewana trip or the West Virginny retreat and of course for whoever gets Ohio.  This’d be like $3 for fat quarter and ?$3? postage so a pretty cheap Christmas gift. If you’d want to do it, I could rig up a map and map pins.

Red and White Challenge?

15 05 2015

Hey, want to have a red and white quilt challenge? By that I mean managing to get the combination red-and-white on a quilt, even if you surround it with other colors; then we could all display them on an applicable date and get ideas; we wouldn’t have to vote if we didn’t want to.

I’m spooked by using them together because I believe the red is YEARNING to bleed all over the white but they sure look great when people manage to do it.

Just saying,
