October Meeting 2014

Standard

Octobers meeting was full of information.

Vicki was feeling a little cagey and skipped one of the steps in the Fall Mystery wall hanging.  So, we are on to step three so that we can not put it together yet. She says these things with a Cheshire grin….

I always forget when I am on the list for snacks.  Matter of fact I brought it this meeting thinking I was on the list for October.  So I will be bringing it next month as well.  I will post who is bringing snacks so if you are anything like me, you can check here to see if you are on the list.  Please note, if you are on the list to bring snacks then you are also suppose to help with clean up.  Lois and Dottie are always doing it with a few of us chipping in from time to time!  I am quite sure they would love more help.

Sheer genius!  Put a few portable lights in a plastic box and voila- instant light box for all your paper piecing projects.

Quilt Shows

Irondequoit Quilt Show this weekend. October 25-26, 2014; 10 – 4 Sat & Sun at Rogers Middle School.  Click this link for more info.

Please feel free to email me with any quilt show dates and I will post them here.

Military Lap Quilts

There is a request for military lap quilts, measuring 36 by 40 for our wounded veterans.  They will go to a hospital down in Florida where there is a unit full of wounded soldiers, with brain traumas, etc.  If you want to have cut corners on one side so that the wheels of the wheel chair don’t catch on the quilt- then perfect.  If you want to make a bigger quilt for the soldiers that are bed bound, then you can do that too.  Remember that a good percentage of these wounded soldiers are women, so if you  like a more feminine touch, go ahead and do that!  All quilts should be red, white and blue.  Use this opportunity to learn machine quilting, heck, you could even try some new things with your walking foot.

Here is a link to pattern to do a smaller quilt if you are stuck on ideas.
