It was surely a meeting to remember, learn and share. We had a lot of fun sharing our quilts, our November Star Challenge and our Modern Quilt Guild Charity quilt. As meetings go it was a smaller meeting yet we shared a lot of information.
This month we did Show & Tell a bit differently and stacked our quilts and blocks and Sue and Marilyn held each one of them up and the Quilter who made it spoke about their piece. It was great speaking about our projects and talking about free motion quilting techniques, putting a facing on a quilt instead of a binding, different methods on how to remove bleeding from a finished quilt and how we store/sort our fabric with so many ideas shared on what works best for each person
The general consensus seems to be using drawers/ baskets/see thru containers and different ways to fold your fabric to fit on the shelf/in a drawer.
December’s challenge (December 9th meeting) is to make a zippered bag and/or a pincushion and we will have an exchange of those so everyone takes home a gift!
January’s challenge is DIY urban scene. Now that WILL be a challenge, but that is what it’s all about. Coming out of your own comfort zone and trying something new that you “just might like” and you just might learn!
