Below you will find the instructions for making the Cancer Port Pillows to attach to the vehicle seatbelt. We will make these in April for our Annual Service Project.
Orphan Block Mash-Up
Dig through your stash and find all those stray blocks, abandoned quilts, samples or the blocks that didn't make the final cut for that perfect quilt. Also grab any excess binding, neutral yardage for sashing or background material.
Bring your machine, sewing supplies and a dish to share for lunch and we'll work into the afternoon making something creative and fun with all the bits and pieces. Hopefully we'll complete a couple tops to use as comfort or Habitat quilts.
Mary Ann Salb will facilitate.
Do you have something quilt related to sell? Here is your chance!! The Market Table will be set up at the October meeting, 10% of the sale will come back to the RPQG and you keep the rest.
Please review the guidelines below for more details.
RIP IT, SNIP, IT & PASS IT
Here is an example of
one completed project!
Make a list of the UFO’S you are willing to fess up to and would like to see completed. Number your list and make a copy. Get one copy to Susan Greene. Keep one. When you finish one let Susan know by indicating which number on your list you finished and include a photo or bring completed item to show and tell. Susan Greene has graciously agreed to keep track of this for us, THANK YOU SUSAN!! Next January we will host a UFO queen party for our winner.
Win by completing the most items!
MAKE A BLOCK FOR A FRIEND
Sign up to participate. Each month we will draw someone’s name. (Or two people if we have enough interest) that person goes home and picks out a block and a color scheme and makes up a block or two to display at the meeting. They will write up directions to construct the block and make a copy for each person in the group. It will include color guidelines. We each take a copy of the directions and we have a month to make one block for that person. Bring your block to the next meeting and that person will be well on her way to a quilt top. As we continue there will be at least one block a month to construct.
Look under the News and Events Tab for a
Block of the Month page.
Gail Caldwell shared a quick easy way to make pet beds using scraps to fill the flannel or fleece bags. Several local clinics and hospitals greatly appreciated our donations.
In 2019 the guild donated over 240 pet beds. Keep saving those scraps and making pets beds!!
