March 10th is a Tuesday
Dee Hoaglund agreed to bring a trunk full of her Scrap Quilts that she has made over time. As one of our talented members, we have enjoyed viewing her lovely quilts at Show and Tell during our meetings. As we all know, we all have “left-overs” in our stashes. Dee presented over 50 examples on how to use those “left-overs”
Community Affairs Sew-In
Following our meeting, please join us for a Community Affairs Sew-in to prepare more quilt blocks for our regular community affairs projects. Our gifts of quilts are so appreciated by those that receive them.
REMEMBER! Many Hands Make light work and lots of fun.
SSQ Magazine Quilt Challenge has been issued to all our talented members.
The challenge is to design and make a quilted project inspired by a magazine that is NOT a sewing or quilting magazine. It may be from a hunting, gardening, health fitness, women’s magazine or your favorite topic.
- Here are the rules:
- At the October 9, 2019 meeting, each participating member in this challenge will be given a blindly selected magazine.
- The page will be determined by your picking two numbers 0 through 9 when you receive
your magazine. You can then use those numbers to pick a page. For instance, if you get
the numbers 3 and 9, you could make a quilt from something that inspires you on page 3,
9, 39, or 93 – so four choices to come up with something intriguing to wow our group with.
(Note, if you draw two of the same numbers, you will be allowed to redraw one number.)
- The size will be limited to 200 inches for the perimeter.
- Make the quilted project related to something on the page you chose (or get stuck with) – i.e., a phrase, a picture, a color, let your imagination run wild!
- Submit the page from the magazine with your completed project and a short paragraph about how your project relates to the magazine page.
- Final Date of Reveal: February 2021 (that’s a lot of time for all of us procastinators!)
The Challenge for all who participate: There will be a dedicated section for the display of these projects at the 2021 Mesas to Monuments Quilt Show.
