Our next meeting of the BMQG is Saturday, April 21st, at Strawberry Patches, from 2:00 - 4:00. Our tutorial will be about adding piping to your projects using Susan Cleveland's Piping Hot Binding Tool. I love the way you can add creative detail to your quilts using piping! Add it to your borders, binding, block construction, clothing, crafts, and bags. The possibilities are endless!
The tools we will be using are included in a package available at
Bolts to Binding. The kit includes a special ruler that will make the construction of the piping so easy! You will also need to bring your sewing machine and general quilting tools to the meeting. Our hands-on tutorials have been very successful, and I'm sure this one will be a hit, too!
How is everyone doing on their scrap bag challenge? At last month's meeting, we exchanged baggies of scraps. We will be making something out of the scraps for the scrap baggie owner. The only rule is that 75% of the finished product has to contain scraps from the baggie. Projects are due at next month's meeting.
