Racing Fingers Quilt Guild June Meeting
June 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Important Update – The meeting venue has been changed for this month. We will be meeting at Aberdeen Community Club House, off Clyde Morris Blvd south of Hand Ave and North of LPGA in Ormond Beach. This is a gated community, so stop at the gate and let them know you are there for the quilting group. Drive into the development to the traffic circle – you will see the club house on your left – Go around the circle and pull along the front of the clubhouse and continue to the parking lot. Be sure to check the venue information below for a map.
“Crazy Quilt Block” presented by Claire Sadowniczak
Presented will be a modern and simple method of making a crazy quilt block that is similar to log cabin. By adding ready-made trim on the machine, this becomes a two-day project. If you don’t like velvets, silk brocade and satin, make yours out of Early American cottons and lace. It is also a great way to display antique buttons/brooches. Scraps of fancy fabrics can be purchased on eBay. Bring to quilt guild meeting to start your crazy quilt block: sewing machine OR hand needle with thread that coordinates with color scheme. (Sewing can be done easily by hand as there is very little) ,muslin/neutral solid cotton fabric cut to whatever size you want to make your quilt block including seam allowances,fabric scissors ,straight pins, small crafts iron ,scraps of fabric (2-3” X 4-7”) in your color scheme, pieces of trim/lace about 5-7” long , straight edge/ruler , blue water-soluble marker for light colored fabrics , white chalk marker for dark colored fabrics, paper scissors to cut out center pattern.
