I came across this interesting post on the "From my Carolina Home" on the topic of attaching borders to a quilt top.  Thought many of you would be interested to read it too.  A little measuring goes a long way!

Stay warm!

Bad Weather!

We were sewing happily away this afternoon, when we were informed how bad the weather had gotten.  School buses were cancelled for the return trip and the west wind is only supposed to pick up this evening. We decided it is best that we cancel the meeting scheduled for tonight.  We didn't want our out of town ladies out on the roads! Sherry will hold her hand appliqué demonstration until next month.

Stay warm!

Meeting Reminder

Thursday February 6th is guild day!

We have a slight change of venue.  The Old Firehall is being used for an Art Exhibition, so our UFO day and evening meeting will both be taking place in the Watson Room.  Be sure to enter through the front doors of the of the Art Center.

Karen will have the room open at 9:00 for our daytime UFO time.  If you are available please come and join us.  I know am looking forward to some uninterrupted sewing time!  It is also a great time to get help/advice /a second opinion if you hit a road block on one of your projects.

The evening meeting will start at 7:00.  The program portion of the meeting will be led by Sherry Kehler.  She is very skilled in the art of hand applique and is going to share her favorite techniques with all of us. In order to get the most out of the evening we are going to learn by doing not just listening.  Sherry will supply the pattern for a heart and has asked that those interested bring the following supplies.

  • Two 8" squares of fabric in contrasting colors
  • Thread to match the color of your heart fabric
  • A needle and scissors
Other things to bring are:
  • Any remaining log cabin blocks that you have made
  • Show and Tell
  • a friend
See you Thursday!
