Charity Quilt Making Day

Hi Everyone!!  Bette and Marge met to plan the putting together of  the cancer blocks.  They looked at the calendar and decided to start with a day session at Bette's.  It will be on May 23rd, 9-12.  The Plan: to finish off with a salad potluck luncheon.   (Who knows, you might even end up on the pontoon!)

 There will be another session in the fall for those who can't get out of work this time.  (and try for a night session)  Email Marge if you can make it.  They will need sewers, cutters, and people to iron.  Also, if you have fabric for sashing and for more cancer block bring them along.

Donation Blocks

Fellow Seam Sisters:

Tonight we enjoyed a lovely evening at Elsie's! During the meeting, we discussed making blocks for donation quilts. Here are the specifics:
1.) 9 1/2" unfinished size (that means 3 1/2" squares)
2.) Nine Patch pattern
3.) Use your scraps. We will coordinate the blocks as we accumulate an assortment to choose from.
4.) Have fun with it!

More posts to follow soon with: pictures of show and tell items, updates on the Round Robin Row Quilt Challenge, and more.
