Notes from the October meeting

First of all, thank you to everyone who brought in quilt blocks for the charity quilt we have planned. We had enough blocks to make one and a half quilts so with just a little bit of effort and a few more blocks we can get two charity quilts together.

We are asking everyone to make another two blocks. For the first block, follow the directions from last month and bring in a bright solid/black block. For the second block we thought a variation might be interesting. In the second block, reverse the order of the bright solid and black parts of the block. In other words, the center square will be black, followed by a ring of the bright solid and finished with the outer ring of black. All sizes and measurements remain the same, just reverse the colors! If there are any questions, please email me.

After much discussion, we decided to next meet November 17th at 1:00 at Mares Bears. Please note that this is the third Sunday of the month. We plan to meet at 1:00 so we can have lunch together. Maryann will make the main dish (either a soup or chili). Please bring a side dish to share. We also decided not to have a December meeting due to the holidays. We will reconvene in January.

Also, we thought it would be fun to play “Left, Right, Center” at the November meeting so if you’d like to participate, please bring 4 fat quarters to play.

I hope to see everyone in November. Until then happy sewing!
