ABC House Quilts - Florence (Diana's Mom) will be bringing our quilts back in June! She has also graciously agreed to quilt another round of quilts for us - she'll be collecting them at the June meeting and they will be returned to us to bind them in October. Backing reminder: fabric must be 8" larger than your quilt (aka: 4" extra on all 4 sides), please use a 1/2" seam allowance for piecing your back, and please no selvedge in the seam.
We have a few fun events coming up this summer!
May 25th -- Sew Day at the Consumers Power (CPI) Meeting Room located at 6990 SW West Hills Road from 10am until 5pm!
If you haven't been to a sew day before - it's basically just a big open sew! The CPI space is wonderful, full of windows and natural light, lots of table space and plenty of outlets so no extension cords are needed. There will be at least one ironing board and iron - but feel free to bring your own if you have a lot of ironing to do. Amber will be bringing her Accuquilt Go if you'd like to try it out. Also, feel free to bring snacks to share (reminder: there is no fridge or microwave)! Sew day is a great opportunity to get things done without the interruptions we often get at home - plus it's always so inspiring being there with fellow quilters working away on our individual projects!
06-14-19 ETA: The meetup with Eugene was canceled.
Quilts to show! Sweet Earth has a wonderful area for hanging quilts and extra clothes line as well. Snacks to share! This will be a very informal potluck. Any snacky food is encouraged. Money for wine! Sweet Earth has tastings available, or wine by the glass. Fabric baskets to swap! We'll be having a swap between the guilds and the theme is fabric baskets! If you need inspiration, we've got some great idea's pinned here. Please bring the basket in a paper bag for a blind swap!
Reminder -- No July Meeting. Our July meeting falls during the week of Quilters Affair and the Sisters Quilt Show.
July 27th -- BBQ Potluck at Pattie's! More details to come!
August 3rd -- Farmers Market! We'll be at the intersection of NW 1st Street & NW Jackson Avenue with a fun morning sharing our love of modern quilting with the community. Several of our members joined us after meeting us at the Market! As we get closer, there will be a call for modern quilts to display in our tent.
