Guild Meeting - Thursday, March 8th
Maria Hall - One Block, 12 Quilts

Maria

This presentation is a show and tell of 12 quilts made from one single block, that each look entirely different. The moral of the story is to show guild members how taking one pattern or block and changing the color choices, setting, sashing, etc., can result in completely different quilts.

As a bonus item for this presentation, Maria has quilted the quilts with different batting types, and will pass the quilts around so the weight and drape of the various battings used can be felt.

For more about Maria Hall, see the Programs page.

There will be no workshops this month.


Upcoming Guild Activities

March

  • The 70,273 Project continues At the March 8th Guild meeting, we will continue to collect blocks for "The 70,273 Project," which is a sewing project to raise awareness of the disabled people killed before the holocaust. Each participant will make one yellow block with two red X's on it. This was how disabled people were marked for death. There are three spacific sizes that have been requested for the blocks - see the Challenge page for the details. Because reds can be so unpredictable, please pre-wash your red fabric (shocking words from this anti-pre-washer), and check it for bleeding and crocking. You can read more about the project at www.The70273Project.org. Show a little love for the many souls lost during this abominable time and make one or more blocks.
  • QGP Annual Retreat is Feb. 22nd-25th. Over 100 of our dearest friends, and friends to be, laughing, eating, snacking, talking, and maybe even sewing, for four glorious days at the lovely and hospitable Hilton Garden Inn Denison. If you aren't coming this year, please plan to come next year - it is really terrifically swell! See more details on the Retreat page.

Also Upcoming

  • April Day Retreat - Dallas Games Marathon, April 27, 28, and 29. For more details, see the Day Retreats page.
  • July 12th Guild Meeting – The big reveal of our Ugly Fabric Swap Challenge. At the January Guild meeting, 24 Guild members swapped almost 300 Ugly Fabric squares. As expected, the most overheard comment was, "But, I like this fabric." Thank you all for participating, and now for the challenge: You can make any quilted item you want to make, but check out the details, available on the Challenge page...
  • August 10th–11th – QUILT PLANO (how fast will this be here, right?)

New on the Website

There is a new tutorial, complete with pictures, on the How To... page (under Resources) - Machine Binding in Four Simple Steps. This is a great way to bind those community service quilts, or any other quilt that needs a quick, sturdy binding.

If you haven't looked at the Gallery in a while, you'll find a number of new photo albums from our guild meetings. More are coming soon.
