Loose Threads – March 2015

March 16,  2015 – Back to Mondays!

Regular meeting from 4-8pm. (See schedule below)

Draw for a UFO Gift Certificate Winner – Bring your UFO’s.  You have a chance to win a gift certificate if you’ve paid your dues for the year and finished a quilt to share with us.

Themed Show and Tell – As well as UFOs, Old Time Loose Threaders, let’s share our Morning Glory Block Swap quilts to generate excitement about the Scrap Quilt Block Swap – OR – share any quilt you’ve made that came from a block swap!

Dinner: Kathleen Thompson and Pogie (We need more ladies to sign up to help with dinner in the coming months.  Three ladies per night would be excellent!) Any volunteer to help Pogie and Kathleen?

Scrap Therapy Begins – Tonight we’ll introduce the Scrap Quilt Block Swap – signups, explanations, block construction demo.

  • At the Christmas Party we had a Fabric exchange for our Scrap Therapy 2015 Block Swap – 5 1/2 inch squares cut from 100% Quilter’s Quality cotton to help scrap up our own Crossroads to Jericho blocks – see instructions below on how to cut up your squares to use in our blocks.
  • The pattern for the block swap we’ll be doing in March and April 2015 is in the book Simple Strategies for Block Swap Quilts. It’s the Tipsy 9 Patch pattern in the back of the book using the Crossroads to Jericho block.
  • Black Fabric Exchange.  We’ve also talked about doing a black on black fabric 2.5 inch strip exchange in March so we can scrap up our black fabs, too. So if you want to exchange black 2.5 inch strips, bring some!
  • Fabrics for blocks – Black is black on black print. Colors need to be 100% Quilter’s Quality COTTON (no flannel) squares – jewel tone medium to dark medium (prints, plaids, solids, tone on tone, etc) – fabric CANNOT have any white in it.
