Next Sewing Day is Friday 13 March

Our next Sewing Day is on Friday 13 March , 9.30 at St Lukes Anglican Hall.
 
Need a hand with your current project or the ‘Block of the Month’,
or just enjoy the opportunity to sew in the company of other quilters ....
bring the project you are working on, your sewing kit and lunch .
We will provide an iron and ironing board, cutting board and tea and coffee.
 
In addition, there will be the option of a mini colour workshop 2 for those
interested. We will explore color and value.  If you tried some of the exercises
from last month bring them along for show and tell.
 
I’ve been looking for small projects that make use of ‘Orphan Blocks’ – my
latest find is a Rice Bag



 This bag uses 5 square blocks  (any size) ... I used some left over 10ins blocks.  It is very quick and  easy to make !!!  I’ll show you how on Friday. 

 If you are interested,  you will need:-

- 5 square blocks, batting and backing for each block
- 5 squares of fabric for the lining – same size as your block
- fat quarter of fabric to make the loops
- cording  - 2 cords   - 4 x the width of your block
and your usual sewing kit.
 

Hope you can join us. Cost for the day is $5.
