We hope the members will assist with these donations, even a small bit goes a long way, especially if we all contribute.

RAFFLE BASKET ITEMS

In order to increase sales, it takes many items to make those baskets appealing, there are 8 to 10 in all that need to be filled. Possible theme ideas to consider: Trick or Treat / Happy Holidays / Country Gal / City Girl / Baby Time / Local Foodie / Modern Quilting / Fantastic Fat Quarters / Batiks Galore.

SCRAP FABRIC POOL

We are planning on a scrap pool, where visitors can fill a baggie from scraps of their choice and pay for it as a fundraiser.  The pool is literally a pool ‘kiddies pool’ brimming full with our scraps.  Usable pieces no smaller than roughly 3” x 3” please.

2 1/2" x 2 !/2" SQUARES

At our last show we gave away a freebie of a small stack of 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares with our guild information on a label securing them.  If you have any squares any colour this size to donate that would be awesome.

Please look around in your sewing room to see what you can part with to donate to this great cause. We will collect items at the guild meetings from April to September. Thanks for helping! 

 

Quilt Show Challenge - will you be particiapting - here are the details.

A BOTANICAL COLOUR WHEEL

Theme: Anything botanical; from a tree to a bud, flower, even a vegetable. If it grows, it goes.

Size: Not to exceed a total circumference of 100 inches. It can be irregular in shape.

Method of construction: Create a 3-layer quilted piece using your choice of technique, paper-pieced, applique, traditional themed-block, collage, etc.  

Now, for a bit of challenge.

  • Use a split-complimentary colour scheme.  Use a colour wheel to find the different colour combinations.  Alternatively, do a 'Google' search for a Split-complimentary Colour Chart.  You will find a great amount of helpful information and examples.
  • Your piece must show the three different colour groups, in whatever balance works for you.  White and black are free colours to use if you wish.
  • Include some element of fabric manipulation, eg., pleats, folds, gathering, pin-tucking, etc.  The little yo-yos we make are an example of fabric manipulation.
  • Add some embellishment; a little or a lot.
  • Attach a hanging sleeve.
  • Attach your label with your name on it, and then cover it over with pinned or loosely basted fabric.

 

Split-complimentary colours just naturally work well together.  

I hope you have fun creating your masterpiece! Any questions just ask Wanda L.
