Here's what's coming up for our group. Our regular meeting is July 12th. Roll call will be your choice of either/or both 4 WOF strips, can be all the same fabric or 2 of 2 different fabrics or 13 – 14, 6 ½ in. x 2 ½ in. strips or bricks to be constructed into Teen Challenge quilts. We have 2 completed quilts ready to go and 4 tops waiting to be quilted. So far, they are good on quilts right now. We will be finalizing plans for the Batik Demo, who's bringing what, how do we want to set up the room, do we need tables and chairs or just chairs? Yvonne will also be doing a applique demonstration at the meeting. This is a great refresher demo or if you don't do much or any applique it's a great time to learn.
July 28th is the Batik Demo by Lunn Fabrics. We need to be at the church by 8:30 a.m. to begin setup. Bring anything you were assigned to bring at this time. The demonstrator will be here at 9:30 to do her setup, meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. Hope we have a good turnout. I know a few that are interested in coming and I know some of you know of some that said they want to come also.
August regular meeting is on the 13th. If anyone wants to do a demo, please let me know. Workshop is on August 25th and Racheana is going to show us how to make a tote using
5” charm squares. Here is a supply list of what you will need:
1 charm pack or 42 - 5” squares or 5 fat quarters will yield 1 large tote and 2 small tote or you can use 42 - 5” scrap squares. Your choice.
1 ½ yds. to 2 yds. of contrast fabric for the top & bottom of the bag, lining and straps. You can also have a pocket inside.
1 piece of Soft & Stable 29 in. x 45 in.
Thread to match for construction
Thread of your choice for the quilting
Button if you want to make a loop or Velcro if you want a closure

September regular meeting will be on September 13th. Anyone with a demo idea let me know. Start thinking about what you will be doing for Hometown Holidays if you haven’t already. The workshop for September will be September 22nd. Please note September has 5 Saturdays, the 22nd is the fourth Saturday and that’s when we meet. If possible, bring your Hometown Holidays project(s) to work on. If you already have them done, you can either bring your own project to work on or there is always fabric to cut up or sew together for Teen Challenge quilts available.
The above pictures are the totes Rachenea will be demoing on August 25th.
Some of the Teen Challenge quilt tops done by Yvonne, Pat and Marcia T.
Upper 3 quilts are by Marcella, great job!
A while ago we made bags with reversible outer shell. The one above is Racheana's. If you look at the picture directly above you will see a picture of her husband on the right side. How clever!
The bag above is also made by Racheana for her grandson.
All great projects!
I will be gone until July 16th, but you can always call me with any questions.
