The Longarm Guild will be meeting next Wednesday, August 3 at 10:00am at the Quilted Joy showroom. This month we’ll continue discussing grid based quilting designs!
Last month we gave an introduction to grid based quilting with some common designs. This month it’s time to let your imagination take off! We had a couple of volunteers who were going to come up with some fun ideas, but we want you to think some up as well. Use the 16 patch worksheet to draw out a few designs to share with the group. 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!
