New Meeting Format
March was our second meeting of 2018. Members came out and enjoyed the sew day format.
Book/Blog/Bolt – Show & Tell
The 2017 charity quilt is back from QuiltCon in the states:
Look at that beautiful quilting that Michelle at Saskatoon Longarm Studio did for us:
The back of the quilt almost looks like another quilt altogether!:
Val showed us a quilt made from Kaffe fabric that she’s been saving over the years:
Val showed us this awesome squares quilt:
Val also showed us a fun modern tree quilt. The pattern is from Simply Modern magazine. She notes that the magazine is translated into english so patterns need to be closely scrutinized for errors.:
Charlene makes her own quilt labels with an inkjet printer using her own fabric. Before printing she applies the fabric to a special poly butcher paper from the states:
Charlene also showed us this clamshell ruler she got from Dinkydoo which makes many curved options:
Barb brought her finished quilt from our travelling quilts. Her theme was “under the stars”. She quilted it on her domestic machine:
On the label she put the name of each person who contributed blocks:
Heather showed us quilt she made using vintage handkerchiefs. She put yo-yo’s to cover any holes they had. It has been longarm quilted.
Bev made a quilt from her granddaughter using Elizabeth Hartman’s Fancy Fox quilt pattern:
She is quilting it with some organic lines:
Linda made a bear mini. She put extra batting under the bear potion to make it pop:
Linda also showed us an Easter quilt:
Darla showed us some of the Purely Canadian Eh! fabrics:
Darla was also working on a quilt block that got a lot of attention. It’s a free pattern called Cut Loose by Free Spirit:
Jana showed her latest Sew Sampler subscription box:
Michelle Freedman has graciously allowed us to use her Urban Chicken Block for our March block lotto. Thanks Michelle!
There were 17 blocks!
And the winner is…. Barb!:
Our next meeting is May 27th. It will be an extra long one going from 10am until 8pm!
Block Lotto will also be held at the May meeting.
