A Quilt Top from our August Program

In August we focused on Modern Traditionalism and designed blocks during the meeting. Our project leaders took those home, sewed them together, and here's the quilt top they made:

 Our September program was a sew-in. By popular demand we did show and tell first.

September Program

Some of us began working on blocks for our MQG Charity Quilt Challenge design. 

The rest of us cut fabric for making conversation blocks for a Habitat quilt. Here's a board that shows the steps to take when making a conversation block:

The tutorial for the blocks was written by Rossie Hutchinson and is found on her blog: Conversation Quilt Tutorial. Some of us took home kits to make blocks. We will bring those back in October and see how many more we need. And we did throw a bit of $ into Rossie's tip jar!
