September 2017 Meeting Announcement: Quilt Bindings

Our meeting will be at The Pittsburgh Project September 10, 2017 from 1-4pm. Please note that the meeting is on a different weekend due to the holiday.

Your inspiration challenge quilts are due at this meeting. We can't wait to see the finished product! Those with a finished quilt to share will be entered to win this awesome bundle of prizes!

Bring your finished Inspiration Challenge quilt for a chance to win this prize basket!

 Keep working on your Make Me a Mini projects and your Quilt Con Charity Blocks. Both of these will be due at the October meeting.  You can turn in any finished Quilt Con blocks this month.

Nikki will be talking to us about quilt bindings. Here's some info from Nikki:

Binding! Is it your favorite step before snuggling under a finished quilt or the very last chore before you can call the project done?  If you already love to bind, perhaps you'll pick up a few new tips and tricks! And if binding is a chore for you, let's find a technique that makes it less of one! We will cover how to create nice corners and sew together the binding tails as well as a few different ways to bind by machine and by hand and how to tackle curves, piping, and a faced binding.
As always, bring your show and tell projects and we will see you at the meeting!
