October 15, 2020 – Wonky Trees

Wonky Tree

These wonky trees were so unbelievably easy and fun! We’re now waiting for projects to be finished and shared. Thanks, Luann, for teaching the class. Luann made her trees even wonkier, by accident. She got carried away experimenting with different size trees, and ended up having to add scraps and sashing to make the blocks […]

August 20, 2020 – Twin Sisters Table Runner

Thanks to Luann for teaching the Twin Sister’s technique, which creates a positive and a negative block of the same design.

Julie […]

July 15, 2020 -LNT Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Even though we aren’t having in-person meetings, many members participated in this outdoor event at the Jeffersonian to either drop off things they need to give or pick up from LNT. Cuddle Care received 22 completely finished Cuddle Care quilts which are ready to be delivered to the babies and children at Children’s Hospital.  We […]

June 4, 2020 – Block 1 of “Happiness is Quilting Together”

Thanks to Susan W. for creating this nine month mystery quilt project.  Tonight Susan H. taught us, via zoom, the first block.  Since there is some bias piecing, we learned that starch is our best friend.  We will be sewing a Block the Meeting each month via zoom until we can safely gather again. Piecefully […]
