|2 slab blocks|
Twice in one week! Maybe this blogathon will lead me to more regular posts! We had our first meeting of the year at Happy Quilters yesterday and had a pretty good turnout – I guess it takes a while for people to ‘finish’ the summer activities and get back to quilting! I put up a few posters and taught the ‘slab’ block quilt because I think it’s a great beginning quilt – it doesn't really matter if every seam is ¼" as long as it ends up at 12 ½" square. This is the block we are hoping Canadian quilters will make this year as we head to the ‘world’s biggest quilt bee’ at Quilt Canada next June http://www.canadianquilter.com/events/quilt-canada-2017-quilting-bee.php Our club decided that once more Canada 150 fabric is in the quilt stores in November, we’ll make one. All the quilts made will be going to the Ronald McDonald houses across Canada next summer and I can’t wait to see the photographs (and be in the quilting rooms at Quilt Canada)!
One of my quilting friends also mentioned that the ‘One MillionPillowcases’ drive is getting closer to the target, so she would like all of us who are attending a quilt retreat later this month to make some and she’ll send them in.
