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.
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.
The cost to join the guild or renew your membership is $30. Print out the Membership Application Form and mail your check to the address on the form.
