The Meade’s Branch Piece Makers had another wonderful quilting adventure. We began the night with Rita Cline leading us to the Lord in Prayer. Everyone seemed very excited about being there, and eager to get started sewing. Bobby and I couldn’t wait to see what everyone had done on their sampler blocks not to mention, Jan’s Mug Block Challenge, which was making a Valentine Day Mug Block. The block pattern for our next meeting was also passed out!
Bobbi Jo did a great job getting together the information for our “History segment.” She handed out a poem called the “The Quilt” along with the history behind our first two block patterns The Dutch girl (aka Sun Bonnet Sue) and the Basket Quilt (Aka Tulip Basket) Very informative.
For our Show and Tell Rita Cline did another Dutch Girl Pattern at home and I
“Sherry Burchett” Did a Heart Shaped Table Topper for Valentine’s Day.
Each Month we Hope to bring you a new Show and Tell of things the Piece Makers have been busy working on.
Everybody who completed their mug blocks did a great job! We love the different ideas for the use of the pattern, as it shows we are exploring and learning new sewing techniques! Pictures were also taken. A Great Time was had by all. Look forward to our next meeting on Feb. 21st See you round the sewing machine.
