 2nd Hour- Blocking and Squareing your Quilt

Come and relax,all you need is a pen and paper. Nina will lead a discussion and demo about improving the finished appearance of your quilts. You will go home with a checklist of points for improving the quality of your work.  Shawn will speak about points to consider before you head to your friendly local Long Arm machine quilter.


Inventory of guild fabrics is being checked, batting has been ordered, basteing spray is at the ready. Ready-Set-Go!!

I have 5 quilts to be sandwiched, some scraps to be cut, some string blocks to construct. Who’s going to help me? Our workbees are informal and unstructured. If you have no project to work on, then please come and join a group as we need pressers, cutters, sewers, and assemblers. And there is always binding to sew if you want to sit and have a cuppa coffee.


And last but not least – see a change in the Program schedule for November’s Demo night.
