On January 18 and 19, Suzi Parron will speak to our guild and hold a class about Barn Quilts. Barn Quilt Blocks are those lovely painted quilt blocks that adorn barns across America. Learn all about the origins of the barn quilt block and the stories that inspire them. Join the class and create your own Barn Quilt block.
Jellyroll Quilt Tops ... January Fun Day
Put a Jellyroll on your Holiday wish list! January 20th will be the second installment of the Sew a Jellyroll Day from 9-5 in the Fellowship Hall at Moody Methodist. There are lots of patterns out there for Jellyroll quilts and they make great charity quilts.
Spring Quilt Challenge - Mini Quilt
The quilt will be due at the May Meeting when we have our picnic and welcome the new Board. A mini quilt is no larger than 24" square with all aspects of the quilt reduced in scale. You can design your own or look for patterns online. It can be any theme you would like - you are only limited by size and your imagination!
