Schoharie Valley Piecemakers Quilt Guild Minutes
September 14, 2021
The meeting was opened by Sharon Vrooman at 1:10 and was held at the Fox Creek Park in Schoharie.
We began with the program and Kathy Livingston discussed and demonstrated how to do reverse dyeing using a variety of objects from nature and around the house. She had hung many samples on clotheslines. Members then worked on their own blocks and hung them to dry and for all to view. Thank you to Kathy for her efforts and all the supplies she brought.

There have been no Hall of Fame meetings so no update is available.
EQF is on hold as Shenendehowa CSD isn’t permitting the use of the buildings by outside groups. The committee will look toward the spring of 2023 for the next quilt show.
The brochure for this coming year’s SVP’s monthly meetings and programs was handed out and discussed.
At Home Round Robin challenge: Most round robins are made by 5-6 people and the piece is passed around monthly for others to do a round. Our challenge will be ours alone to work on and is a good opportunity to use scraps. The first round is to make a center block of any size you choose. The second round is scrappy in any way you determine and borders your center block. Sharon suggested a google search of round robin quilts or images of border quilts if you would like some inspiration from other sources. The next round will be announced at the October meeting.
