Hi! My Name is Doris Lovadina-Lee and I will be hosting the May meeting. I’ve been a member of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild from its first year and always enjoy the discussions, ideas and beautiful quilts we share at our meetings. If there are any of you out there (members or not) that haven’t been recently, I encourage you to attend for a fun filled afternoon.
Drunkard’s Path, Orange Peel, Double Wedding Ring, Robbing Peter to Pay Paul, Grandmother’s Fan these are just a few of the quilt blocks that are constructed using curved seams. Circles and curves - these words seem to draw fear into the heart of a quilter. Fear no longer!
Come to our meeting on Sunday May 25th and I’ll demonstrate how to easily sew accurate curved blocks. Quarter circles, complete circles and wonky circles all of these are constructed the same way. Bring in some fabric scraps, thread and you can try stitching some yourself.
Show and Share
Bring in your quilts that feature curves and circles to the show and share. If you have any patterns, featuring curves bring them in for advice and tips on construction. As usual bring in any problems, questions and ideas.
Sow’s Ear Challenge
Don’t forget to bring in your Sow’s Ear purse, if you had time to finish it this month. (You have until out June meeting to finish them if you need more time) I had fun making mine and am looking forward to seeing what you all created.
