January 2017

First of all apologies to Lisa and Peggy.  I inadvertently forgot to post these two pictures to December's post!

Peggy had several requests to teach us how to make this cute bag!

Got a nice surprise when Kathy Souba sent me this picture! It is her completed 2015 BOM.

If you are doing the BOM this year you can print a PDF of the instructions.

Tina showed the first BOM, demo'd half square triangle construction methods and recommended the LOC BLOCK ruler.

Jill our new president gave a program on paper piecing.

Some of Jill's amazing miniatures done with paper piecing.

Jill also has a blog, Apple Avenue Quilts where there are some free paper piecing designs.

She passed out a pineapple potholder pattern to all and recommended using insulbrite batting.
