August Program

The topic of our August meeting will be LOG CABIN quilts. Please bring your log cabin quilts for our discussion and Show & Tell about this favorite old pattern. If you have a pattern to share that would be nice, too.

Courthouse Steps which is a variation of the Log Cabin will be our August pattern of the month. We will be making a quilt for veteran (52" x 63") using Barbara Brackman's new fabric called Civil War Jubilee by Moda. The fabric seems perfect for making this style quilt, and I got so excited about it, I cut out 30 kits which I will be passing out at our meeting. Here's a peek at the block which I think is going to make a beautiful quilt. I have to control myself not to sew up all the blocks before our meeting!

Civil War Jubilee fabrics are the dark fabrics, and the light fabrics are a mix of what I had on my shelf.

 Hope to see everyone on August 13th - meeting starts at 7 p.m.,
but come early at 6:30 to visit.

We will be sewing this Friday & Saturday, so come sew with us, or stop by to visit.
