Curve It Up Quilt Along

Nicci shared her curved churn dash block at our meeting today. Some of you asked me to post the information about the Curve It Up Quilt Along with the Quick Curve Ruler. The instructions for the block can be found on the blog, Sew Kind of Wonderful. Every two weeks, Jenny will post a new block made with her Quick Curve Ruler. If you want to get in on the quilt along, you can order the ruler on the Sew Kind of Wonderful website. You'll receive the ruler in just a few days! You can also check out the Flickr group for the Curve It Up Quilt Along. It's great to see how different the blocks look, depending on the fabrics used!

Saturday Meeting Program

Put a Point on It!
We hope you all remembered to change the date for the November meeting. It will be held this coming Saturday, November 10th, 2:00 - 4:00, at Strawberry Patches.

Nicci will be showing us how to use prairie points to add charm and pizzazz to our projects! You'll need to bring a cotton, flour sack style tea towel (available from Strawberry Patches, Joann's, and Beverly's), ten  4.5" squares of fabrics, 1/2" wide ribbon in a length that is 1" longer than the width of your towel. You will also need to bring your sewing machine and other general sewing supplies. A walking foot might be helpful. 

The small project we'll be working on, would make a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer, gift basket liner, etc. 

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
