May 2, 2019 – Finishing Your Quilt

April 18, 2019 – Maryhurst Bags

Maryhurst – “Saving kids’ lives, strengthening families.” Maryhurst first opened their doors in 1843 as a home for girls who’d been mistreated and cast aside.  As they grew into the community and learned more about the needs of Kentucky’s most vulnerable kids and families, they added programs designed to prevent abuse, restore hope, and empower […]

Log Cabin quilts first made […]

March 7, 2019 – Mini Table Runner Using Fusible Grid

Many of our members were unfamiliar with fusible grid, which can make using small squares so much faster and more manageable than individual piecing.  This mini table runner President Bill showed us was SEW easy!  First we cut out the pieces according to the pattern, then pressed them on to the fusible side of the […]

February 21, 2019 – Wonky Square in a Square

Although this appears to be a very difficult block, it really isn’t, as long as one follows the directions.  This technique starts with four different colored squares.  After cutting and sewing per wonky directions, each participant will end up with four Wonky Square in a Square blocks.  Some beautiful first squares were created. And some […]
