ROWmakers meeting – 11 July

The ROWmakers is a design group that meets once a month on the second Wednesday, February – December. The purpose of the group is to design and make a unique quilt-related project, over the course of the year, using ingredients drawn at random each month. The full list was published here. (ROW=Rowdy on Wednesday)

The next meeting is on Wednesday 11 July, 10am for a 10.30am start, in the CQ room at the Cook Community Hub. It is followed by a drop-in, until 4pm. So you can stay all day to sew. Because we won’t have a meeting in August there will be a double draw of ingredients.

Here are the ingredients drawn out for the first five rounds:

# Colours Techniques Alphabet
1 Green Scraps A
2 Blue Tradition with a Twist L
3 Neutral Appliqué P
4 Yellow Piecing U
5 Orange Pre-cuts/strips W

A number of members have chosen to stick with one technique throughout the year, e.g. Scraps, so they disregard what technique is drawn out each month. The adapt-a-block is best illustrated by Yvonne’s quilt from last year. She took one block and came up with many versions through colour and rotation and flipping.

Here are some images that show the responses for rounds 3 & 4 (neutral and yellow):
