February

Hopefully we have all survived the cold, the snow, the mud…Phew! Its been a good time to quilt so Im hoping to see some more Bird projects come in this month! The deadline to get them finished is the April 18th meeting so that we know exactly what we will have to display. I can hardly wait to see what amazing birds show up! 

I wanted to give A HUGE thank you to Susan for her presentation last month on giving movement to landscape quilts. Her work is so beautiful! I took away some great tips to try to put to use on my next landscape attempt! 

At the November meeting several people expressed an interest in exploring quilted postcards and actual postcard quilts, so I thought if anyone has made quilted postcards or has any information about them we could start thinking about that as our next challenge. I will bring some pics off the internet and one that I have done to give you an idea about what they look like. The actual postcard quilts are made of of dozens of the 4 X 6 quilted postcards. I have seen some done in christmas cards that were really beautiful too. So…start thinking about that, and of course any other ideas that you would like us to explore.

A couple of years ago we did an activity called flower pounding. It involves literally pounding flowers into fabric to leave an imprint. I was asked to bring the directions for this again so I will bring them to this meeting and share a couple examples. Its a great way to embellish quilts or to make beautiful vintage looking wall hangings.If you did this activity last time and have samples to share, please bring them!  Its a GREAT stress reliever too!

Please bring any of your work to share, including your birds! If anyone has a skill, or idea that you would like to teach or demo for the group please let me know so we can set it up for a future meeting. See you Feb. 21 at 1pm!
