Getting the most from 12" BOM blocks

Hi Everyone,

I came up with a plan to S-T-R-E-T-C-H our 12" BOM blocks.  We currently have enough blocks for 5.5 lap quilts.  With this method, we'll be able to make 11 lap quilts to donate from the same amount of blocks.  We may have more blocks donated at our meeting tonight, but I always like to be prepared and 11 is so much greater than 5, and who wants half a quilt!

Every time I made blocks for the guild, I made some blocks to keep.  As you can see this method works well with scrappy blocks and it's modern.

You can find the tutorial for this layout here.

May your bobbins always be full,

August 2018 Meeting

We're all work as a team at TVMQG.  This month Jan is posting, Angelica was unable to attend the meeting and Patty took the photos so I could lead the meeting.

Here are the photos of my favorite part of the meeting, Show and Tell!

Patty – Shared a quilt she made using a Jen Kingwell pattern and all Primitive Gatherings fabrics.

Colleen – Made a mini-pieced block for her San Diego Quilt Guild. She made a mini “bear cub” quilt.

Jessica – Shared her finished jelly roll quilt top from our jelly roll race last meeting. She also showed us a finished t-shirt quilt top she made for her neighbor.

Rosanne – Shared her finished jelly roll quilt top from our jelly roll race last meeting. 

Jane – Shared a book she found called Trade Quilts by David Butler, pen name Parson Gray. The book is filled with more masculine looking quilts. She shared a flannel quilt top she made for her nephew using a pattern from the book.

Jeanie – Shared a king-sized quilt top she made called Moonlight Senada. 

Madelynn – Shared the finished jelly roll quilt top from our jelly roll race last meeting. 

Linda – Shared the finished queen-sized quilt she shared last month when it was only a quilt top.  

Maritza – Shared a quilt she made using a new technique she learned called “one-block-wonder”. 

Susan – Shared her first hand-embroidered piece. She made a flowery throw pillow.

She also repurposed a dog food bag into a useful tote.

Here's a list of the other things that happened:

Jan presented the new Block of the Month, you can find all the info. here.

Colleen did a great presentation/lesson on Color Theory.  She's the BEST!

The winners of the door prizes are the Gift Card, Nancy, Easy Curves Kit, Patty, FQ bundle Maritza.  Angelica didn't win anything this month, which is a record, OH she wasn't there!

Some quick notes.

At the September meeting we're having our Annual Yard Sale, Susan will present the BOM and the Charm Pack Challenge Quilts are due.

Jessica will be sending out an email for Sew Days to work on our Quiltcon Charity Quilt.
