The Longarm Guild will be meeting next Wednesday, February 7 at 10:00am in the Quilted Joy showroom.
This month Mary will be giving a presentation on a variety of finished edges on quilts. While her quilts were hanging here in the showroom we were all awed by her prairie point and curvy bindings and the yo-yos decorating her edges. She’ll be sharing some of her tips and tricks to creating your own fancy finishes!
We’ll also have the program sign up sheet for the rest of the year. There are a few months still looking for a topic or a volunteer to present, so start thinking about any topics you’d like to present to the group!
Don’t forget to bring an unfinished top for the “How would you quilt this” segment to get input from others on how to tackle a top and your latest quilts for show and tell.
We will be continuing our UFO challenge in 2018! Don’t forget your finished quilts for the UFO challenge! What’s a UFO? It’s an UnFinished Object, so all those quilts hiding in a closet just waiting to be quilted. If you bring a recently finished quilt (quilted and bound, label preferred but not required) for show and tell, we’ll add your name to the APQS mug. At the end of each meeting we’ll draw one name. The lucky winner will receive two small cones of Glide thread! We’ll save all the names and at the end of the year we’ll have a grand prize drawing. The more quilts you finish this year, the better your chances are of winning!
