1st THURSDAY QUILTERS
Previous meetings:
 

What you missed at March's meeting:


Optional Block for Next Meeting: A Day At The Fair!
12.5 block to represent a Day at the Fair. Think barnyard animals, rides, games... use your imagination. If nothing else just make a standard block in any pattern with LOTS of color.

Just what is the Optional Block?!?!?!

Various Blocks

  1. Each first Thursday of the month you'll be given an assignment to make a block (voluntary).
  2. The blocks theme and/or pattern and/or colors as well as the size will be provided.
  3. Complete your block befor the next month's meeting.
  4. Everyone who created a block will be eligible to win the blocks and they are yours to keep! One name per block, so if you were ambitious and made 2 you get to put your name in twice .
    1. One little exception about the drawing, if you've won in the past you MUST complete a quilt top (or something) using the blocks you've previously won before you are eligible to win again. To see examples of previous completed Optional Block projects click here.

 


The 're-opening' of Red Hen brought out lots of smile with the 1st Thursday Quilters! I even see a few new faces to the group!

This is the cat quilt sandra made from the blocks she won at 1st Thursday last year. Its lucky I missed that meeting or I may have 'borrowed' it on the way out the door! I love kitties!!!
