On Saturday May 21st 13 members attended a sit and sew event at the church and some did paper piecing with Betsy and others did selvage piecing with Sharon.
Next year’s programs will reflect the many suggestions for guild programs regarding some aspects of color and trading fabric scraps. Sharon said the summer assignment is to look up color and rainbow quilts. She has found ideas in the McCall’s quilting magazine from September/October of 2021. She said the AQS magazine has many ideas on their website. She also suggested finding inspiration from nature and calendars. Each month Sharon said a crayon will be pulled with a color to use in our quilts. We can bring in fabric scraps to share and trade to use in our project. She said the colors white, grey and black will be removed and can be used as background color in your quilt. She suggested we find a quilt pattern we like over the summer.
