Longarm Guild: Quilting Grid-Based Designs

The Longarm Guild will be meeting next Wednesday, July 6 at 10:00am at the Quilted Joy showroom. This month we’ll begin a new series – quilting designs using grids!

If you’ve done this before, go ahead and draw some of your favorite grid-based designs and bring them to the meeting. If you aren’t familiar with this technique, don’t worry – Liz will do a quick demo so everyone understands why grid-based designs are so useful.  Everyone will leave with a packet of design ideas you can use on your next quilt! So that we might save a little paper, we recommend bringing some tracing paper and a clipboard. This way we can draw out our ideas on the tracing paper and can still use the handout again. Plus, our tables are a little bumpy, so the clipboard guarantees us a smooth drawing surface!

Don’t forget to bring your latest quilts for show and tell and an unfinished top for the “How would you quilt this” segment to get input from others on how to tackle a top.

If you’re quilting for others, feel free to bring along a stack of business cards to leave in the shop!
