April 5, 2018 – Weaving Fabric

Weaving fabric was a very relaxing project for the end of a long day.  Strips of fabric of varying widths (or the same width) were woven together, to be pressed to interfacing to prepare them to be used in a project, such as place mats, hanging, purse, quilt, etc.  The only limit is your imagination!

This was an incredibly productive day!  A dozen or so members worked until early afternoon completing more Cuddle Care quilt-tops to quilt at our Cuddle Care-athon in July.  Some experimented with the Disappearing Nine-Patch using some of the 9-patch blocks remaining from the Cuddle Care meeting earlier this year, and others worked on strip quilts.

February 24, 2018 – Quilters’ Day Out

After many months of preparation, Quilters’ Day Out arrived and went as scheduled in spite of extreme flooding throughout the area.    Sometimes it takes more than record high water levels to keep quilters away!

It was a pleasure to have Donna Duncan present the KHQS Challenge Quilt Exhibit.  The twenty-six quilts in this exhibit were made in response to Past KHQS President Sarah Scarborough Frye’s challenge to KHQS members.

Pam, our Half Square Triangle Queen, explained to the group several methods she has used for making half square triangles and showed examples.  Then she focused on one of her favorites of easily making eight half square triangles from 2 layer cake squares (or other size squares).  Less than an hour later, the room was […]
