Scrap Tamers Mystery Quilt

The mystery has been revealed! This is a photo of my Scrap Tamer mystery quilt from last session, Sept. 2008-August 2009. Many of the club members made it from their stashes. How fun to see so many fabric combinations as they've been choosing their border fabric. I'm guessing we will see several for show and tell when the new club starts. The first session of the next Scrap Tamers Club will meet on Sept 19 and run for 9 months. There is still room in the afternoon sessions if you missed the signup day. We will again make a mystery quilt as part of the club. Check out the class schedule if you'd like more information about Scrap Tamers.

Upcoming demos

We have 2 demo days coming up this week. The 2nd Wed Demo on September 9 will be on the technique in the book Layer 'em Up by Sharon Craig. A fun fast technique for making the X block. We will demo this technique from 1:00 - 5:00.

On Saturday, September 12th, we will demonstrate the Layer 'em Up technique again. In addition, we will also demonstrate the technique from the book Sew Simple Pineapple by Karin Hellaby. This is a technique to make the pineapple block using only easily cut squares of fabric. Those 2 demos will run continuously from 10:00 - 12:00 and 1:00 - 3:00. Come see us on Saturday to learn about these 2 fun techniques.

Hope to see you on Wednesday Sept 9 or Saturday the 12th.
