Here is a message from the co-ordinators, Michelle, Jan & Jenny about this month’s meeting. Meeting starts at 7.30pm on 8 October in the CQ room at Cook.
We had a great “chillax” last month and have decided to have a chillax month every three months because it was lots of fun.
This month is not for chillaxing, although you are very welcome to do that if you like! I thought we could make the Raspberry Kiss block as per the Wooden Spoon Quilts blog – http://woodenspoonquilts.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/raspberry-kiss-block-tutorial_56.html
You can elect to make a 4 1/4 inch finished or 8 1/2 finished block. I’ll be showing you how to do the 8 1/2 inch block (see photo for some examples), so if you want to join in, please precut the following fabrics:
- 4 x 2½” background fabric squares (low value)
- 2 x 2½” cross fabric squares (medium – dark value) CORRECTED
- 1 x 6½” x 2½” cross rectangle (as above) CORRECTED
- 2 x 5½” squares, cut on the diagonal (so 4 triangles) (low value)
Also bring your sewing machine and sewing equipment including rulers, mats and rotary cutter. The blocks are quite quick to make so perhaps bring along a couple of blocks cut out. Or else share your machine with a friend (there is never enough space anyway!) and chillax the rest of the time 😉
If you don’t want to partake in the block making, then please BYO sewing. Also please bring along your show and tell.
