June meeting notes

Hopefully the third time is the charm for our program this month! Julie and Debbie Quitaquit have schedule Debbie's Quick Curve Ruler program twice so far. Unless it snows, we will finally get to enjoy it this month.

If you are participating in the batik block exchange don't forget to bring your fabric. I don't know what the penalty is if you forget but it should probably involve chocolate.

Other notes:

Friday and Saturday Sewing is this weekend! Come join us to sit and sew all day Friday and Saturday at our usual meeting place. We have cutting mats, irons, extension cords and a fridge and microwave. Stay an hour or all weekend.

Virginia Quilt Museum: The next time CSQ volunteers at the VA Quilt Museum is July 29th.  Would be great if 4 members could volunteer.  There is an Artist Reception for Phase II exhibit that day. Also the farmer's market behind the museum should have lots of just picked produce.  

A sign up sheet will be passed around at June meeting.  Check your calendar, and help support the museum by volunteering.

Veteran's Quilts: The photo above is of 4 veterans quilts that I (Vicki) got quilted this month. At the meeting I'll be hitting you up for money to buy more batting and backing soon.

House Blocks

Thanks to everyone for making such adorable blocks representing our community.

The last of the blocks were given to me over the weekend and now I will begin assembling the 49 blocks, sashing and borders. This has truly been a group project and I appreciate so much participation and a special thanks to those of you who made multiple blocks. 

Here are the final blocks:

I plan to bring the quilt top to the June meeting where we can decide how to have it quilted. Until next time. . .
Happy Sewing, Becky

House Quilt

CSQ is making a fundraiser quilt to be given to W.H.E.A.T.

The blocks all look great and will make such a nice quilt. We need a name for the quilt, so please leave your suggestion in the comments or bring your idea to the quilt meeting.
Ideas so far are:  1. Community  2. Neighbors

Please finish your blocks and return them at the May 9th meeting. Here are some of the blocks, and I'll be sharing all of the blocks over the next few days in no particular order. 

 To be continued. . .
