The PEIMQG is currently focused on our 2018 Raffle Quilt. The quilt will help us raise funds, helping to ensure that we continue to grow and have the opportunities to learn from leading professionals in the quilting community.
It was decided that we would make a quilt using the awesome "Dancing Duo" pattern designed by our very talented member Velda also known as Freckled Fox Quiltery.
We had 7 members attend the Sew-In, with the goal of cutting all the fabric needed for the first stage of the block. We used the "circle cut" ruler to cut both pieces of the drunkard's path block.
Here's Velda demonstrating a cool technique using glue to baste the 2 pieces together, a great method for accuracy without pins!!
While some members continued cutting (Heather, Janice and Velda are pictured below).....
others were sewing the blocks. (Here's Jean, Lucinda, Cathy and Linda with Gail, who stopped in for a visit).
By the end of the day we were able to complete all the first stage of cutting and sewing!! Great effort everybody!!
We will be getting together for the next several Saturdays to work on the Raffle Quilt. Be sure to check back to see how things progress!!
