There is a change of programming: Carrie of It's a Zizza will be joining us in March for the ruler quilting demo. This meeting, February, we will have a demonstration from Sue Trask on using specialty rulers to make flying geese. This is a great skill to have in your repertoire, and will be especially helpful for those of you participating in the block of the month!
Sue will have some of these ruler available for sale after the demonstration.
We will also have a demonstration on how to post a photo to Instagram. Please bring your mobile device if you have any questions or want to follow along.
Fall Workshops: Please remember that February 4th, Saturday, is the last day that sign-ups for the September Workshops with Jen Carlton Bailly will be open exclusively to SMQG members - after this we will be opening sign-ups to the public, so let your friends know! Deposits of $50 per workshop are require a deposit to hold your seat in the workshop. Find more information about the workshops here!
Block Lottery: For this month's block lottery we will be making Polaroid Blocks. I have included the handout from Judy here. These blocks are based on a tutorial by Capitola Quilter, that can be found on the web here. We will be piecing only the center fussy cut and the white frame around it. Also, for consistency, please use Kona White as the fabric for your edging.
Please note that 4 Polaroid blocks + $1 will count for one entry for this month.
Please also remember to bring your calendars and name tags.
