Help tie quilts for Voices for Children and the Monterey Peninsula Dialysis Center. Just think how these quilts, with bright splashes of color, will encourage those who have so many challenges ahead -- you can help make someone smile. Join us on September 11th to meet our newest members, and reconnect with old friends as we tie the quilts.
What to bring? A thimble, scissors, darning needle, and 1 1/2-inch or wider blue painter's tape, if you have it. Other supplies will be at the tables. I hope you all remember the knot I taught you last year!
For those of you would be willing to take a binding project home after the meeting, it would be much appreciated. Just sign out the project like any other finishing project.
Remember to bring your checkbook or cash to pay your annual MPQG dues.
Whatever you call it ... join the "quilt pickers" adventure. This month only, you have the chance to bring fabric and all quilt-related donation items to the Freecycle Tables on the patio. Open Hours: 6:15 to 6:55 p.m. and 8:15 to 8:45 p.m. Closed during the Tie-in from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m.
One rule: If your items are not taken, you need to take them back home. Please do not leave them. When? Starts at 6:15 p.m. at the September meeting. Free Cycle closes during the tie-in and reopens afterward so that you can get that piece of fabric! Please bring shopping bags. Remember! Only clean fabric.
Last year was a huge success!
Above: Mod Mola option
Sign ups are open for our October 1 workshop. Learn how to create beautiful, modern quilted texture with your walking foot. Let's move beyond the basic stitching in the ditch and explore decorative stitches, repeat patterns and even gentle curves to create drama and eye catching quilting designs to your unfinished quilt tops! Mel also includes the Mod Mola option.
