Dear ShorelineCTMQG Members,
Greetings! We will be continuing our in-person, outside, socially distanced meetings on Guilford’s Town Green. We will meet on the Broad Street side, by the Congregational Church.
Please bring a folding chair, whatever refreshments (if any) you would like for yourself, and a hand stitching project, if you would like to sew.
Our meeting will begin with a “sew-and-tell,” to share any projects we’ve been working on or completed over the past several weeks.
Meeting time: Thursday, July 16th at 7pm.
(Our rain date is the following Thursday, July 23rd at 7pm).
COMMUNITY PROJECT (Group Swap):
Last month we swapped 10″ crumb-pieced blocks. This activity went so well that we would like to extend it to our July meeting. For reference, the video is called REPLAY: Crumb Quilting with Jenny. Please feel free to bring any additional blocks you would like to our July meeting. The idea is that you may take as many blocks as you bring, i.e. if you put two blocks in you may take two blocks out.
Following up on our projects that explore work that taps into our thoughts and/or emotions; since we haven’t had the opportunity to touch base with the group on progress, we will take some time during our meeting to do this, postponing project completion to our August meeting.
* Reminder: The idea is to create a piece that conveys a message that is relevant or meaningful to you. The message can include words and letters, codes or symbols, or can be completely pictorial. The project can be a block, wall-hanging, or a whole quilt.
If you have not already done so, please feel free to sign up to lead a group workshop. This can be a technique or pattern in which you already excel and can demonstrate different ways to achieve, or it can be a technique that you decide to explore and then share your learnings with the group. The idea is to challenge ourselves creatively while adding to our collective skill base. You can find the sign-up sheet here
