Common Threads Quilt Guild 

NEXT MEETING – Tue, December 4th, 2018, 6:30 to 8:30 PM

December’s Meeting will be our Annual Holiday Party and it will be on December 4 @ 6:30 PM8:30 PM and will be at Asbury United Methodist Church (4760 Winchester Pike, Columbus, Ohio + Google Map).

We will be doing a Potluck dinner (no sign-up is necessary) – bring whatever you’d like! It has been suggested that if you contributed to the cookbook, bringing one of your cookbook recipes would be a great idea!

We will also be doing a Gift Bag/Box exchange at the December meeting. Any shape or size is welcomed! Checkout Pinterest or Google Images for “DIY Fabric Gift Bags” or something similar to get some good ideas. The theme is “winter”, but there’s nothing stopping you from making a Birthday bag if you want to. Everyone who brings a bag or box will take home one.

NOTE: The Common Threads Quilt Guild By-Laws have been changed. Please review these new By-Laws (PDF) and come to the meeting with any questions. We will be voting on approving these changes in the near future.

 

SUCCESSFUL CHILI COOK-OFF & ORPHAN CHALLENGE QUILT

We had a very successful Chili Cook-Off at our November Meeting. We hope that the winners will display their awards with pride – the chili’s this year were all absolutely delicious!

Our Orphan Challenge Quilt reveal and voting was also a huge success! We had 15 entries that quite beautifully showcased the diversity within our guild. They were all so well done! Terri Brown ended up winning the Challenge, based on votes placed by all in attendance. See her quilt and the many other Orphan Block projects within our private Facebook Group.

 

SOCIAL SEWS

Join us for a day of fellowship, fun, food…and sewing!

December 8th from 9:30am – 3:30pm at Parsons Avenue Library – 1113 Parsons Avenue, Columbus, OH 43206

Please feel free to come for the day or just an hour or two. Meet and get to know some of your fellow guild members in a fun, casual atmosphere. Bring your sewing machine, a project or two to work on and whatever notions you need. Irons, ironing boards, rulers, and cutting mats will be supplied by the guild. Jackie will also have several baby kits if you don’t want to bring a project.

There are many restaurants, fast food and pizza places close by or you can bring your lunch. You can also bring a snack to share if you’d like. No red drinks are allowed in the libraries.

Our social & charity sews, retreats, and other activities are great ways to make a connecting thread with other guild members.

 

COOKBOOK – The Hungry Quilter

The Hungry Quilter is here!!! Bring your receipt to pick up your pre-orders. We will have extras available for purchase at the meeting, as well. Checks should be made payable to the guild and include a note of how many books you’d like to order. Cost is $10/book.

 

BLOCKS & SWAPS

Block Swap!

Black and White Bento Boxes – We will be using black on white and white on black as the colors for the blocks. You may have a speck of color on your black fabrics. I have also been searching for fabrics for this swap and have discovered that it can be kind of hard to find black and white fabrics without gray in them, so you may also allow a small bit of gray to sneak in there, too. I will have a pattern available when you sign up, but you can also find a detailed tutorial here https://goo.gl/Zog7Rj .  Finished size will be 12 inches.  These can be turned in at the November meeting.

Fat Quarter Lotto

Here is what’s coming up for the Fat Quarter Lotto:

  • December – Christmas Party – No Lotto

Just a reminder, please make sure your name is on your labels.
