April Links

Here are some links from our meeting on Monday.

Our speaker next meeting is Bethany Garner from Kingston. Come and see some art quilts and learn about dyeing your own fabric.
The next Joy of Stitching is Monday, May 6 at Joy’s Bakery in Simcoe. For those who have never come before, it is a get-together to do some hand stitching (fabric or yarn) for a couple hours ,with coffee or tea and some treats, for $5. Starts at 6:30. It is a great way to get to know other members.

Inspired by Julie Bosgoed’s and Terry Anderson’s Anthologie Quilts, a modern/traditional sampler quilt full of patchwork and piecing techniques with a little boho flair, go to the Anthology quilt-along for the free pattern.

Jill sent the page/pattern that she and Julie and Karen used to make their Foundation Paper Pieced house blocks. It is attached as a PDF. Be sure to print it at 100% and check the measurements because they learned that even when printed at full size, different printers can give different results.

How to sew Drunkard’s Path blocks without pins! Ebony sews with the “L” on the bottom. Watch here

I have attached the listing of all the AccuQuilt Dies at the Norfolk County Public Library and the cutting guide for them.. And the “Simple HST Quilt Tutorial” that will walk you through everything you need to know to use the Go Big Electric cutter in the MakerSpace. If you are interested in making a quilt for Marguerite to take to Mexico next winter, why not try it. You can use any fabrics you have on hand. Civil War fabrics will make a serviceable quilt. It doesn’t have to be baby material.

See you in May! Have fun quilting!
