June 13 Sew-In

Here's what you missed if you weren't at the Saturday, June 13 Sew-In. Be sure to sign up here, if you want to attend the next one: Saturday, July 11 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Belleview Public Library.

Several members worked on Delectable Mountain blocks for our North Lake Presbyterian Church donation quilt.  
Betty V.


And two of the Delectable Mountain block quilters also made their first "1 Hour Basket." Here's the link to Craftsy and the free pattern.
Other quilters worked on their own projects, including Donna F. who pieced...

...and managed to finish a quilt top!

June 8 Meeting

As always, our monthly meeting was the first Monday in June - June 8. We're seeing more and more great Show and Tell modern quilts, and everyone loves it! Enjoy!
Donna: improv, asymmetrical; negative space
Donna: modern interpretation of a jelly roll quilt
Mary: Her own wonky block design; machine quilted on a domestic sewing machine
Betty: asymmetrical child's quilt
Karen: Quick Curve Ruler design inspired by a quilt seen on Pinterest
Karen: Quick Curve Ruler "Deco Shimmer"; big stitch quilted with perle cotton
Karen: Foundation paper-pieced Palm blocks
Bette, our Charity Quilt Chair, demonstrated how to put together Delectable Mountain blocks for our 2015 quilt.

She even showed how easy it can be to make a mistake!

Our program, given by Vice President Debbie, was a demonstration of how to use a regular-sized Fineline glue tip, and Elmer's School Glue, to glue-baste curves before machine piecing.

Members are reminded that we have several challenges in which to participate. Go here to review the opportunities and rules.
