Historic Sampler Satellite – Crazy Quilts IN PERSON & Zoom
September 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This program is divided into 2 months. In September, Ray Carter will give a brief history of crazy quilts, make our fabric selections, and discover different methods of assembling our block.
In October, we will experiment with different stitches, threads, and embellishments. We will also briefly cover some finishing techniques.
You may want to use your piece as a learning tool or you may want to use it to make a top for a favorite box, an ornament, eyeglass case, small bag, or even a full size Christmas stocking!
Supplies: Ray will provide the muslin foundation of 14” square. If your project requires a larger or smaller block of muslin, just email Ray (see below) and she will do that. She will also have many fabric scraps and trims available to all, but feel free to bring some of your own fabric scraps and trims, maybe enough to share.
You will need your basic sewing supplies, including sharp needles and a frame or hoop in October when we do the stitches. In October, you will also want to bring all those bits of lovely threads that you are holding for just the right project!
The plan is to meet in September on Ray’s back porch so she can drag all mhery stuff out for you to pick through. Even though her porch is very large, we will limit the number, so first come, first serve. We will also (fingers crossed) zoom this meeting. I do live in Driftwood, but it’s a lovely drive and light traffic on a Saturday.
Please sign up by email to Ray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
