scrappy quilt - using the Block of the Month approach. I am one month closer to my first patchwork quilt! It is so nice to chat and craft with friends. The response to the club was overwhelming. We thought maybe 4 or 5 people would join, but there are about 15 members! I love to sew with kids, but this is something just for me, you know?
Darla Ives, a wonderful quilter and friend. I have admired her work for years and have bugged her to start a sewing group. She patiently goes through the steps to making the square we are working on each month. She also showed us the basics - how to properly square up fabric, cut strips, chain pieces on the machine, and pin the squares together. All techniques I new about vaguely, but weren't doing properly. Darla has some good basic quilting information on her Facebook page if you're interested.
