January 19 – Kid Quilts
Our program is a working session for Kid Quilts. We will cut and assemble block kits for sew-ins later in the year. Our pattern is the 40″ X 48″ four-patch baby quilt. Please bring:
- 1/2 yard (42-44″ width) of fabric for four-patches OR 2/3 yard of fabric for 8″ plain blocks (extra fabric is always welcome!) Fabric should be baby print or baby solid (pale pink, blue, green, yellow). If you have smaller scraps of baby fabric, feel free to bring them along. We may be able to fit them into a color scheme.
- Rotary cutter, mat, and ruler(s) of your choice
February 16 – A Walk Down Memory Lane
Members will bring their favorite quilted item (or a picture of it) and be prepared to tell why it’s their favorite.
Recent program presenters and topics have included Vicki Pignatelli, Elizabeth Palmer-Spilker, Marcey Arter, a special viewing of the Ohio History Connection quilt collection, Quilt Beginnings, Sew to Speak, Red Rooster and Serendipitee quilt shop programs, and social gatherings. We’ve also had programs featuring hand embroidery, buttons, and sewing history.
