This year instead of making a quilt block for our Guild President Ann Hockmeyer has asked the members to help her with the final requirement to enter the Certified Judge Program. That requirement is to judge a show that has a minimum of 35 quilts.
If you’d like to help here’s what you have to do…
Theme – Favorite Holiday (must be stated on label).
Size – The sum of the sides cannot exceed 100 inches.
Construction – 3 Layers (top, batting, back) no false backs.
Label – Required on back but securely covered with fabric or masking tape.
Deadline – May 17, 2016.
The quilts will be displayed at the June meeting (with ribbons) and again at the Guild’s Quilt Show in September 30th & October 1st 2016.
Please see Jane Hamel at Guild to sign up or if you have any questions.
Scrap Bee (formally know as Block swap)
an opportunity to make just one block for a chance on winning enough blocks to make a small quilt.
