March meeting details

The March meeting will take place at 1:00pm on Sunday, March 1st at the Pittsburgh Project. We will continue working through the lessons detailed in the book Lucky Spool's Essential Guide to Modern Quilt Making. Next up on our journey through this book is working with solids and effectively incorporating prints. Kathy will be leading our discussion for this session. She has chosen a fun little block to explore solids and prints: Hexing Around Block. The supply list for this block are as follows:

4” square - large/fun print material to fussy cut 2.75” hexagon (hexagon template will be provided)

12 - 1.5” strips - solids and/or prints
(Can be 4 colors/3 strips of each in prints; 12 strips in solid colors; take a look at the link above and decide what you would prefer)

2 - 5x7” rectangles and 2 - 1.5” strips - either solid or print

Ruler with 60 degree angle mark
Please bring supplies and your machine so we can all work together!
Other highlights of the upcoming meeting will be details about the upcoming sewing retreat scheduled for May 2nd from 9:00am-9:00pm, Melissa will share some details from QuiltCon, 2015 membership cards will be availalbe (and pins!), and last, but by no means least, the first installment of the Fat Quarter Club goodies will be disbursed.
Fingers crossed that Mother Nature is feeling favorable next weekend!
