Don’t miss the July Meeting!!

We are so excited about our new location!!  It is going to give us so much opportunity for that extra sewing time we all love and just more time to hang with our quilty peeps!!

Join us Sunday, July 30th from 2 p.m. – 7 p.m at the Neptune Beach Senior Activity Center. The address is 2004 Forest Ave. Neptune Beach, FL 32266.

We will have a short business meeting to discuss the 2018 MQG Charity Quilt and upcoming elections!  Yes, it is that time again!  Can you believe it?

After the business meeting, plan to stay and sew with us.  Inspired by Pinterest, Robin has created a modern grid pillow pattern for us all to make.  It will be a fun time to practice our precision seams and free motion quilting.  What better way to your free motion juices flowing than a small quick project.

For the pillow, there are 3 contrasting solid colors.

For the front:

Color 1 and 2 – a fat quarter of each color or 1/4 yd of each color

Color 3 –  2 1/2″ x WOF strip

For the back:

Color 1 – 2 @ 18 1/2″ x 12″ and 1 @ 18 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

Color 2 – 1 @ 18 1/2″ x 2″

Color 3- 2″ squares for covered buttons – Robin will be bringing her button press to make quick covered buttons.

Batting – 20″ x 20″ square

Muslin or some other lightweight fabric for quilt sandwich to quilt the front of the pillow.

Bring your machine and matching thread.  A rotary cutter, ruler and mat will be helpful. Robin will be bringing an iron and ironing board.

Once we get going with our sew-ins, we will see what regular supplies we may be able to keep at the center and what we will need to bring each time.

If you don’t want to participate in the pillow project, bring what other project you want to work on.

Don’t forget your Show and Tell!!

You can also bring food and drinks as there is a kitchen and refrigerator to hold your items.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!! Invite a friend and let’s get this party started!!
