Hello Quilting Elves,
· November program is the presentation of the mystery quilts from Judy Dawson’s challenge. Patsy will also be bringing the Meals on Wheels lap quilts for everyone to see.
See you November 14th
· October program is a presentation by the Chino Valley Police Department on how to avoid being a victim of scams. This is a good general information meeting as the scam artists are getting more creative. Please feel free to invite a guest. The program will be before the business meeting so they don’t have to stay for the entire meeting.
See you October 10th!
1) Judy Dawson has provided a mystery quilt challenge for the guild to coincide with her quilt retreat at the end October. Attached to this email are the fabric requirements for the quilt. You will need four fabrics. The quilt finishes at 60” x 72”. Participants will be able to select fabric(s) needed from the nicer fabric that has been donated to the guild. Clues to finish the quilt will be emailed daily starting Oct 27th. Judy has donated $100 for prize money for the mystery quilt challenge. Eligibility for the prize money will be explained at the meeting.
2) ‘Learn to quilt your own quilt on your sewing machine’. There will be a demonstration and tutorial on how to quilt on your domestic sewing machine. There will be members available to help get you started. Please bring a practice piece of batting sandwiched between two pieces of fabric. Best size is 12” x 12”. And of course, bring your sewing machine and sewing gloves if you have them.
3) We will also be sewing fabric together to make backing for finished quilt tops that Patsy will bring. Bring your sewing machine to help make backings for quilts. Consider taking a top and backing home to quilt on your machine.
See you on the 12th
