Common Threads Quilt Guild 

NEXT MEETING – Tue, February 26th 2019, 6:00 to 8:30 PM

Our February Guild Meeting will start with a Sweets Potluck – celebrating our love of sweets – starting at 6:00pm. After a brief meeting, Three Divas from our very own guild will entertain us with fun demos.

NOTE: Our February Meeting is at Bexley United Methodist Church, but we are meeting in the downstairs hall. After checking in at the podium, go down the stairs/elevator, turn left and go all the way to the end of the hall.

We’ll be holding a raffle at our meeting for a chance to win a bundle of quilting goodies – tickets will be sold at $1 each or 6/$5. There will be several sign-ups for activities & events at the meeting.

Please remember that as we are in a new calendar year, you will need to renew your membership. Dues are $30.00 and you can print and fill out the Membership Form to bring along and save time at the table.

 

SOCIAL & CHARITY SEWS

Join us at our February Charity Sew to get to know one another better & give back to the community by making baby quilts for Moms2B. Please bring your sewing machine & usual sewing supplies – kits will be provided.

If you are planning on attending, please send an RSVP to Bev Fuchs so that she knows how many to prepare for.

 

BLOCKS & SWAPS

Block Swap

Our first swap will be a Friendship Quilt Block Swap.  You will swap in groups of 7 so you can sign up individually or with any number of your friends, up to 7 swappers. You will provide the fabric for the quilt blocks your friends will make for you.  This is a great way to use up that fat quarter or half-yard bundle, or yardage that has been sitting in your stash.   Just grab it and a few coordinating solids or prints and put them in a plastic container.

Each month you will receive the box of one of your swap-mates and make them two 12.5” blocks of your choice, using their fabric. At the next meeting you will pass the box on to the next person.  At the end you will have twelve 12.5” blocks that will finish at 12”.

Sign-ups will be in January and February and you will need to have your fabric ready and with you in March.  This is a 6 month commitment so please only sign up if you are willing to see it through. There will be more details at the meeting.

Birthday Swaps

We have only three birthdays to celebrate for this month. Remember, our Birthday Swap is closed for the year, but you can always sign up now for next year! As always, if you have any questions, feel free in contacting Donna Broadnax, Co-Chair of Swaps and Coordinator of Unsewn Swaps. Thanks for your participation.
