    With the summer holidays, schedules are busy and time is tight so the guild is not paying for a speaker this month.  If you have time, please join us for a  fun meeting over zoom where we share a video tutorial from Carol Thelen of The Five Oaks Retreat on the Hollow Cubes Quilt Block.  There are no Y-seams, and the pattern with full instructions is available as a free downloadable pdf (just cut and paste the link below)

    Show your Block of the Month progress, cheer on others, ask for or give help as we encourage and motivate each other! Join in any time, whether you are sewing the blocks or just enjoying cheering on the others.

    Details on the BOM Cottage Group are here, along with notes/tips about the pattern and alternate blocks.  Finish block 5 for August if you want to stay on track. You can join in at any time, but you've got some catching up to do! Since the blocks are not in order of increasing level of difficultly, it's probably best to just join in with the current block, and work on the earlier blocks as your time permits.

    Our teacher for the day, SQC Member JoAnn Mendenhall, is an experienced fabric collage quilter and has previously taught at Fabric Smart. JoAnn will demonstrate and pass on to us Laura Heine’s collage techniques and all her secrets for making a successful collage quilt.

    The chosen pattern for the workshop will be Laura’s Teeny Tiny Collage Pattern Group #1 – Dress, Elephant, Fish – as shown in the picture. Each of the three designs finishes at 16” x 20” and can be used as a wall hanging, pillow or stretched on a canvas and hung. You are welcome to choose a different design to work on although it will be a sample of this set that is available to see on the day.


    The pattern is available for $25 either via Laura’s own website - https://www.fiberworks-heine.com/shop/Patterns/Collage-Quilt-Patterns.htm or from Fabric Smart at 6798 Crosswinds Dr. N, Suite C101, St. Petersburg Florida 33710. Members interested in ordering the set from Fabric Smart should do so by August 30.

    No sewing machine is needed on the day of the workshop.

    Supplies needed on the day will be –

    3 yds of 12” wide or 1 ½ yds of 24” wide fusible web (e.g. steam-a-seam 2 or Heat & Bond Lite) - (This will be sufficient for all 3 patterns.)
    Marker for use on fusible web
    Fine point small scissor
    Applique pressing sheet – 17” x 24” minimum
    Small rotary cutter
    Small cutting mat – 12” x 17”
    Quilters ruler 3” x 12”
    Muslin or Pattern Ease Foundation – 1yd
    Glue stick
    20" x 24" light or plain fabric for background

    PLUS

    A good selection of fabric scraps - No precise fabric quantities are given with the patterns as scraps can be used for the entire quilt. When choosing patterned fabrics, smaller motifs will work best as they will be in proportion to the small size of the finished quilts.

    Part lecture and part trunk show, this fun talk tells Elizabeth's journey from Canada to Korea and back again.  While in Korea, Elizabeth studied the ancient art of Pojagi, Korean patchwork.  Back in Canada, however, the Korean materials are more difficult to find, so she adapted Pojagi techniques to readily-available western materials with some great results.
