Woke up to the heavens giving up some much-needed rain! I'm talking about a gully washer! (Thanks for the term, Laura) It's the perfect day for getting together with quilty friends and learning something new! Pam will be teaching us how to make a kaleidoscope block, with a great tip for getting all of those center points to meet, while distributing the excess bulk. Bring your sewing machine and regular quilting supplies, as this is a hands-on class. Pam will be supplying the pre-cut pieces for the blocks. If you have a portable ironing surface and iron, please bring those along with you.
We are also having a scrap bag swap. Bring a quart-sized baggie full of useable scraps. Make sure your name is on the baggie. We will swap baggies today, then return a completed project for the owner of the scraps, at the May meeting. The only rule is that 75% of the finished item has to contain some/all of the scraps in the baggie. You can make a mug rug, pot holder, pin cushion, pillow top, mini quilt, etc. Have fun with it!
I hope to see you today at Strawberry Patches from 2:00 - 4:00, and don't forget to wear your green!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
