Next Month's Program: Barn Quilts
Members signed up and paid a supply fee to participate in painting their own wooden 12" x 12" barn quilt. Marci Meyer (Chairperson) along with her husband, Tony, will gather supplies and pre cut the wood. Members are to come ready to paint and have fun with a copy of their favorite quilt block. When completed these block will be a beautiful accent for a front/back porch, over the garage, or along a small yard fence; anywhere you want to welcome all!
We also encourage participants to just go ahead and make two of these 12"x 12" blocks;
the extra one to be sold at our Quilt Show 2018 Marketplace. Generally, the barn quilts are much larger depending on building size; 8 ft x 8 ft, 4 ft x 4 ft or 2 ft x 2 ft.
