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,

Jan

May 2018 Meeting

This month's meeting was another smaller get together, but as always, we still had fun! :)
While Jan is in Norway Jessica led our meeting.

June's Block of the Month will be the Card Trick block and was done by Jessica. The BOM post can be found here



Nancy brought in her completed charity quilt top.


She also brought in 2 quilts she made from a stack of Moda fat quarters she had bought.






Sherry made these fun zipper bags she intends to sell.



Taylor brought in a quilt she made for her class.  Her professor gave an assignment that could combine her class and a hobby, so she made this awesome Cell Quilt!


Susanne brought in her completed charity quilt top.



She found a picture of this quilt she liked on Pinterest. She traced it back to Patchwork Magazine but couldn't find the pattern, but she figured it out and made it for her house.




Her Mother in Law inherited this quilt from a great aunt. She is looking for help on restoring it.



Sue made a quilt from a challenge from Angela Walters. Each of the blocks is quilted differently.





Manon made this from a leftover Jellyroll and the back was from an old quilt top.



She made this sample from scraps.



Linda made a 2-fabric applique hangings. She will be doing a demo in September. If you're interested, you can go to www.parqc.com and search "2faq" for more info.




Wendy dyed these pieces of wool using sugar free packets of Kool-Aid and vinegar.





Some announcements we discussed at the meeting:
We need to start planning QuiltCon charity quilt and will need volunteers. 
June will be the charm pack challenge quilt, so don't forget to bring those in. 

Raffle winners were:
Sherry - fat quarters
Jessica - quilting socks and a Moda zipper bag
Sue - $25 Primitive Gatherings gift card

Hope to see you all next month!
