Community Comfort Quilts Workbee

Also see March 11 post for some suggestions for using charm squares and 2.5 inch strips.

Just for the information of all guild members………..

1. we have a partial roll of cotton batting for your use . Please use with care and splice together pieces if necessary for the quilts. It will soon be available for you to cut on Tuesdays, as we will be storing it in one of the large closets.

2. Lainey has been generous again this year and sent along 19 yards of fabric to use for backings or for borders. Come and be inspired to see if it would fit in your project.

3. We are presently storing the extra fabrics that have been donated over the years,at the Soccer Center storage room. Shirley would be very pleased if some of this fabric was used and we could avoid storage of these boxes. Can you come and be challenged by a piece of fabric? Find something that would make great alternating blocks with ninepatches, make good borders, useful for pieced backings?

I had taken most of the smaller pieces from these boxes last year.  I’ve cut them into squares, rectangles, jelly roll strips and strings for the scrap saver class last fall. I will be bringing 5 inch squares for anyone to play with this month.Pair them up with yours and have some fun.
