January meeting Wed. Jan 14th

This month we will have a stitch night. It is time to assemble the quilt we've been working on in bits and pieces. However... we need 9 more blocks with a white-ish (not cream-ish) background. Please let me know if you can provide one - 12 1/2" unfinished size. This is a sampler quilt, so any block is fine and any colours are fine too, as long as the background fits the white-ish requirement. Get rid of some of those orphan blocks... put 'em in this quilt!

As a little background, the blocks have been collected as the samples of Block of the Month. The 9-patches were made last year in a Relay Race. The railroad sashing strips were made at a sewing day last summer.

I would like 5 gals with sewing machines to do the sewing. And perhaps 3 irons and ironing boards. Everyone will learn my uber-neat way of assembling quilt blocks with sashing and cornerstones with NO STRETCHING OR SKEWING of the sashing.

If you never have an opportunity to come for sewing days, you are welcome to bring your machine and work on something this month! Either one of your own projects or placemats for Meals on Wheels. Bring a project you are stuck on and get some help, if you like.
