Thursday, July 1st – QCG Meeting featuring “Danish House” blocks

Our guest speaker is Gloria Stalhut from Quilted Glo and she will be talking about “Danish House” blocks and showing her completed quilt using “Danish House” blocks and hot fix crystals.  Gloria will offer a “Danish House” class later in July for our Guild. Plan to come and find out more about these blocks, hear more about the class and bring one of your completed projects for “Show and Tell” and meet us at the Greenwood United Methodist Church.

The meeting starts promptly at 7PM, but if you would like to join us at 6:30PM to sew and chat, please do so.

The mask protocols have changed at the Greenwood United Methodist Church which is located at 525 N. Madison Ave., Greenwood, Indiana 46142. If you have been fully vaccinated, you can take off your mask. If you have not been fully vaccinated, please continue to wear your mask. Some people may choose to wear their mask even if they are fully vaccinated. You are welcome to attend 2 meetings before you join our Guild!

Also, be aware that Madison Avenue is still under construction. You can only go North on Madison Avenue when you enter or leave the church parking lot. An easy way to get to the meeting is to go South on 31 until you reach Main Street where you will make a left at the light (heading east). Then turn left on Madison Avenue at the light (heading North) and drive about 5 blocks to the church. The parking lot will be on your right side.

Happy Quilting!!!

Join us on Thursday, March 4th for our next QCG Monthly Zoom Meeting!

Jeanette Bagley is going to take us through a tutorial on how to make Prairie Points and show us examples of new and interesting ways that she uses Prairie Points in her quilts. Join us at 6:30PM for a sew along and/or at 7:00PM for the actual start of the meeting. To join our guild and to receive an invitation to our next ZOOM meeting, contact Sheryl Otter at sherylotter@comcast.net. For a definition of what a Prairie Point is…see the following info that I found on the world wide web…

What are Prairie points? Prairie points are folded squares of fabric that add an interesting texture to a project and can be made using any fabric. They look great along borders and even in the body of wall hangings and fabric baskets. They add color and a third dimension to your quilting. Most prairie points are small and are perfect scrap busters.

I hope to see you all on our Thursday Zoom meeting!

January Pin Cushion Project

We will be making a scrappy heart pin cushion, or you can make a block if you wish.  Make it any size you want and decorate it however you wish.  The directions are in the January newsletter.
I made two possibilities.  The first picture is using an orphan block with reverse applique.  Excuse the satin stitch.  The second is one I made following directions from a Quilting Arts magazine from 2019.

The QCG “Art Bee” has been busy…

In November, the QCG “Art Bee” made Art Trading cards. This first picture is a group of Art cards that I received in November. Each card is about 2″ x 3″ (or just about that size), some are three dimensional and all are quite lovely! The second picture features postcards we made and traded for Christmas. This is a fun group and we currently meet by ZOOM. Let us know if you would like to join us for our January ZOOM meeting. Techniques used on the cards include beading, machine embroidery, painting, stamping, sewing and quilting.

Wilma’s Block is done!

I hope that she likes the block that I put together for her! I used different fabrics to make it and put it in the mail yesterday.
