October 2014 Club Meeting

We enjoyed a presentation by Jan M. about incorporating men's ties into your quilts.  Jan demonstrated how to take the ties apart; how the opened ties can differ in shape and size and how to cut it up for the best use in your quilt projects.

Here, Jan is displaying ways to use the ties in string blocks with different settings and sashings.


Jean S showed off her finished Patriotic Braided Flag banner.  We started this project at the last retreat.  Jean included some fancy stitches from her machine to quilt it up.

We also had a wonderful collection of charity quilts finished for this month.  Joyce D. brought in 13 quilts for the childrens ward!  THANK YOU, always, JOYCE !   Here are some photos .....

and Kat S. finished up 2 quilts for the children's ward....

October is a busy month for the Piecemakers Quilt Club.  Several sew-together project days are scheduled.  Hope you can get your mojo going and attend some of these days.  It is always a fun fellowship.
