Scrap Quilt Meeting Coming Up

Scrap Quilt

Our next meeting is this coming Monday (7th July). The plan is to set to and make the top of the raffle quilt for our exhibition next month. So please could you bring with you fabric scrap 5” squares. If you have quite a few charm square packs that you have never got around to using perhaps you could bring those too. The idea is to mix and match all colours, dark and light fabrics.

Apart from the fabric could you also bring along:
– Pencil
– Ruler
– Sewing machine (with ¼” foot if you have one)
– Neutral colour thread

Hope to see you all!

A Christmas Sack

These photos were taken in September when this was still a work-in-progress, but we didn’t want to spoil the surprise by sharing photos before it was delivered to the granddaughter in Australia!
