October 2008 Meeting

Linda will be demonstrating a shattered image block at the October meeting. Please bring your sewing machine to the meeting if you wish to participate. Kits will be available for a nominal cost or you may bring your own fabric. A large scale print will be used. You need four pieces of fabric with the exact same image on it. They really don't need to be square. You can also use a rectangle if that is what you have. Linda cautions that using animals may produce a “freakish” result.

Here is a good fabric example from a Kaffe Fassett fabric collection.

Material list:
Sewing Machine - clean and in working order
Rotary Cutter
Cutting Mat
12"x12" or a 6 1/2"X 12" ruler
Scissors for trimming thread
Extension cord

Finished block

Block-of-the-Month for October:
The block-of-the-month for October is “leaves”. Anyone wishing to take part should make a leaf block that is 12 ½” square. For each block submitted, the person will get his/her name entered into a drawing to win all the blocks submitted. Hope you all “fall” for this one!

Deb has an October birthday and will bring treats to the next meeting.
