Racing Fingers Quilt Guild June Meeting
June 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
“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.
