July 1 Victorian Rose Tea Party in Biggs

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.
