March 2014 Newsletter Meeting Thursday 20th. March

What a great response to the first block of our new Loddon quilt. 28 members had their blocks 

ready for show and tell and what an amazing variety of ideas! Well done everyone.

If you have made a tree(or equivalent) block bring it along for us to see this month.

This month the demonstration will be foundation pieced leaves for the block above the log cabin 

– size 16.5" x 5" finished size, plus ¼"seam allowance all round. This is a narrow block and 

could be one block or several joined. Foundation notes for some leaves are attached – you will 

need 4 templates joined to fit the block - foundation templates for others will be available at the 

meeting. Freezer paper, tracing paper and Vilene will be available for you to use at the meeting. 

Be very careful when printing out, especially from tablets, check that the size is correct before 

you start stitching.

We will also be showing you the fourth block (for April) which will be appliqued – Sunbonnet 

Sue – which fits to the left of the log cabin block.

We will introduce quilt as you go this month for those who want to use this method. Notes are 

attached, but it easier once you have seen the demonstration, so you may want to make notes on 

the notes!

If you don’t want to ‘quilt as you go’ we will show you how to layer and quilt your quilt in one 

go later in the year.

Show and Tell

Not only did we have a splendid show of log cabin blocks last month but some members had 

found time to make other items for Show and Tell. It is always a source of inspiration to see what 

others have been doing so do bring your work to share.

The library – we will be putting the library out in the Garden Room so you will have more 

room to browse. There are so many inspiring books, do have a look. You can borrow 2 books at a 

time, just sign them out and back in on return.
