February Meeting Reminder - Free Motion Quilting Workshop Part II

Our February meeting will be held on Sunday, February 2, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.  The meeting will be held at the Pittsburgh Project - 2801 North Charles Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15214.

If you attended the first workshop, please bring your folder and handouts you received.  There will be extra folders and handouts for anyone who did not attend first session.  At this session  we will be exploring the design aspect of free motion quilting and looking at some of the  ways to fill the space of our quilts.  At the first session there was a request for more easy-to-learn patterns, so Ginger will have more handouts of some of her favorite quick fillers.  If you want to try stitching the designs, bring your machine and a few quilt sandwiches.

Ginger will have handouts of pictures of quilt tops to use for an exercise on how to audition designs - if you have a quilt top or picture to share, please bring it.

There will be  a lot of drawing and doodling at this session so if you have  scrap paper you want to use up, please bring it.  We will also have plenty to share.

Bring your favorite drawing/doodling tool - some like pencil others like markers or even crayons.  Ginger will be providing the dry erase markers for designing on the acetate on your folder.

As usual, we will have show and tell...and if you made anything with your scraps from our Scrap Swap last month, bring it to share!

If you have any questions, please contact us at  See you on Sunday!
