2010 Quilt Group

Quilting 2010- and the sewing continues

Goal is to meet on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 6:30 in the Fellowship Bldg.

Most material will be provided for classes, individual projects are on your own.

Traditionaly we have worked on Grad. Quilts, charity quilts,
a quilt/top to show at ladies night and a Mystery or Block Exchange.

This year I would like to expand on pattern and piecing theory and touch on
Free Motion Machine Quilting on your personal home machine. I have projects in mind that will allow each of us to work at or above our comfort levels.

February- paper pieceing hearts w/a block exchange (Participants in the exchange need to donate 2 heart blocks for a project to be announced later)

March-Stack & Whack- this will be your quilt to show off

April- Grad Quilts (we will also work on bindings)

May-Donation quilt work nights- fabric is provided- children's prints

June-Strings! Americana fabrics- bring your scraps

July- Letters- another scrappy!

August- Crumbs and another block swap

(if you do June/July/Aug in similar prints you will have enough
blocks for a scrappy top)

Sept/Oct/Nov -Free Motion (Fireman Quilts and children's Prints)
Celtic Knot former mystery revealed-
pattern will be available for those who want another TO-DO

The goal for this year to learn a few new things about quilting and each other.
We will continue to work on individual and group projects. Love, Laugh and Learn!

As always you are not limited to just the projects on this list, if you have questions and/or suggestions, feel free to throw them out there and see what sticks.

Organize the stash (This is a do as I say, not as I do!) , pick patterns, color theory, machine quilting, scrap projects, sharing what you make with others, there are so many things we can work on in Quilt Group!

I realize that SCRAPS are not for everyone, each class will be taught so the
participant can do a controlled project is so desired.

As always I will be thrilled to see what all we get done this year.-
