Tips, Tricks and Techniques

DO YOU HAVE a quilting tip to share?

What about a special or favorite tool, or perhaps a trick to doing something quilty?

If you do, don’t be shy.

Please bring your tool/trick/technique to the September 6, 2016 meeting.

This is just a casual sharing. If it’s a tool, please bring it and tell us why it’s special, or if you want to show us a technique/trick and bring an example.

Our meeting program will focus on sharing each member’s tool/ tip/trick for the group.

The board will lead off with some of their favorites to get it all going.

See you at the Tuckahoe Public Library, 1901 Starling Drive, Henrico, VA 23229!

We are making a Quilt for Pulse

WE ARE making and collecting heart blocks to create a quilt to send to the Orlando MQG. They plan to give the quilts to the family and friends of the victims of the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando and to the survivors. They have a goal of 102 quilts.

Ana will assemble the quilt top, and Jennie will quilt it.

What you need to know:

–Any size heart is fine. We prefer a 10.5″ unfinished block to make it easier to assemble.

–Any number of blocks is fine. Make as many as you can or want.

–We prefer a light background — low volume, light gray, or white on white.

–The hearts should be in rainbow colors — prints or solids.

–Ana will make it work.Quilt for Pulse

Here is a heart block pattern you might want to use:

The Modern Quilt Guild also has a post with links to other heart blocks.

DELIVER BLOCKS TO

QUILTING ADVENTURES BY Sunday, JULY 10.

April and May Meetings

We will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at Quilting Adventures, 6943 Lakeside Avenue, Richmond, VA 23228.

2016 Meeting Dates April 2016

Beginning at our Tuesday, May 3, 2016, meeting, our location will be at an Henrico County Public Library, from 6 to 8 p.m. Address below:

Glen Allen Branch

10501 Staples Mill Road

Glen Allen VA 23060

Please note that the location of meetings will change based upon availability of meeting spaces. We can only have one event on the Henrico County Public Library calendar at any given time. Thus, we have to wait until after the May meeting to set the July 9 class with Susan Emory. That means we will need to find an alternate meeting site for the June guild meeting.

We will discuss all our plans at the Tuesday, April 5, 2016 meeting at Quilting Adventures.

Thanks,

Executive Council
