May 5 “Patchwork” Shopping Tote
Jane Haworth will teach us how to use the heavy duty bags from frozen items or ground coffee bags to make a “patchwork” tote perfect for shopping trips. Start saving those colorful packages now! This will be a fun, practical, and easy project.
We did this last year to the delight of all who attended. Come join us for good food, a beautiful garden surroundings, a tour of Biggs’ fully-restored lovely Victorian house, and Wanda is the best of hostesses! We will pick a meeting point and carpool to Biggs to arrive around 1:30, so that those attending church prior are still able to come. The cost will cover the lunch at $12 per person. Bring a few dollars to help pay for gas if you’re not driving. Bring handwork as well if you would like to do that while we sip tea and talk. http://thevictorianroseofbiggs.com/
July 28 Scrappy Strip Quilt
Melody Peters will show you how to make this fun and easy quilt by placing strips of various widths on a light piece of interfacing to form a foundation. You can see her sample in the quilt show. Start saving your scraps and cutting them in various widths from 1.5 inches to 3 inches in the length of the piece you have. Pick a color to form the sashing. I used black for mine, but any color that will enhance the blocks works fine.
August – TBD. See Melody if you have an idea for a class!
September – Laura Rucker will show us how to create a prairie points border and a scalloped border on a 24”x24” quilt sandwich you’ll bring to class. She will also demonstrate creating a faced binding.
