2014 Calendar

In 2014 we are continuing our  Block of the Month (see below). Even if you don’t want to participate in Block of the Month, please come and bring your own project to work on.  We will still be having drawings as prizes for finished UFO’s for those that pay their annual fee of $20.  This year they will be monthly – so finish up those unfinished objects and come show them off at our monthly meetings. Our meetings have changed to the second or third Monday of the month at Country Oaks Baptist Church in the chapel.  We begin sewing at 4pm, have dinner between 5:30-6:30pm and finish up just before 8pm.


Don’t forget to work on one or all of the three Challenges we have for 2014. We’ll be showing them at the Christmas Party in December 2014 and having a drawing. The three ways to enter the 2014 Loose Threads Challenge? Complete an “I Spy” from the charm exchange we had at the Christmas Party, make a Block of the Month quilt from blocks you win, or make a Block of the Month sampler with your own blocks/own fabrics. Make one, make all. There will only be one drawing but if you make three quilts, your name can be in the drawing three times.


*We have been following the Summer Sampler Series but have to add a few blocks so that everyone will be a winner.   It was decided to NOT do the Six Pointed String Quilt in the Summer Sampler Series due to the Y seams and hand sewing involved.  There is some information missing below such as instructions and color choices.  We’ll decided those at our next few meetings.  Have fun.
