Raffle Quilt Construction Committee
Thank you to those who have signed up to contribute their time in making the First Prize Raffle Quilt for the 2018 Show. They are: Grace L, Gail W, Wendy L, Wanda L, Debra P, Micheline G, Kate D, Darlene B, Janet S, Sandra L, Karlie M.
First sew-in day was Sat 23rd Sept. Wow did we work hard all 64 blocks were fully completed in just one day. Karlie sewed all the blocks together the next day and the top is now ready for Grace L to add her magic (long arm quilting).
Steps to Block Making
Cut a 9" square of black or tone on tone black (prefered) and a 1" width by 9" length strip of a bright colour.
Make a cut in the 9" square (not too close to the edge), sew in the 1" strip with 1/4" seam allowances.
This will leave a 1/2" strip in your 9" square.
Finished size 9" square.
Add only 2 or 3 strips , these are some ideas. Please bring finished blocks to the October or November meeting.
Second Prize Raffle Quilt Project. - Only 11 more needed
We would like to have a smaller (lap size) second prize quilt like we did for the Quilt Show 2016. In order to do this we are asking members to make one or two small blocks to contribute to this project. It is a very easy design only taking about 10 minutes to make a block, so not a huge commitment and it won't diminish your stash.
Committee Leaders - Sign-up
A huge thank you to all of those who have volunteered to take on a leadership position. All positons are now filled. There will be plenty of opportunity for other members to assist on committees and during the actual quilt show weekend.
