Coming up at Loose Threads in September 2014

Hello Loose Thread Quilters:  Our next meeting will be September 8 at 4pm at Country Oaks Baptist Church (see schedule for rest of year below).  Vicki Ruggles and Theresa Morrow are set to make dinner.  Thanks to Sandy and Heather for last month’s dinner.  Congratulations to Roxanna for winning the UFO drawing in August.  Please bring any final BOM’s (Kansas Dust Storm, Evening Star, Snail Trail, etc.) to the meeting so the last few block winners can get working on their quilts so we can see the results at Christmas.

We started our Round Robin in August.  Round Robin Participants are:  Annette W, Carolyn W, Angi W, Sandy D, Lisa R, Cathy C, Diance C, and Pogie PC.  We are on a slow track exchanging every two months.  Next exchange will be October.

I was thinking about our schedule for 2015 and wanted to get some dates on the calendar.  We want to do Scrap Therapy and need some volunteers to share ideas of what to do with scraps. Mary wants to do half square triangles and Angi wants to do strips.  Be on the lookout for pictures of quilts that fit the Scrap Therapy theme. If you’re on Pinterest, here’s a link to some pics Angi has collected.  Can we do another Mystery Quilt in January or February again, Laura?

New Idea!  Themed Show and Tell

Ladies are always asking what Loose Threads have done in the past (our history) so what if the old time Loose Threaders brought projects we’ve done in the past to share with our new ladies?

For instance:

January 2015 – share our first mystery quilt. (Have a Mystery Quilt in January or February?)

February 2015 – share our Pioneer Samplers

March 2015 – share our Morning Glory Block Swap

April 2015 – Share our first Batik Challenge Quilt

May 2015 – Share the quilts we made from the gift of someone else’s fabric we picked up Christmas 2006

June 2015 – 2007 was a block in a bag to make for someone else

July 2015 – 4 star Mystery Quilts

August 2015 – Charm Pack Challenge Quilts

September 2015 – Strip Quilts

October 2015 – Dots and Stripes Challenge

November 2015 – Batik Fabric Exchnage

December 2015 – Share our Scrap Therapy Quilts

Everyone could still share UFO’s to be in the drawing but what do you think of the themes?

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the year.
