Charity Quilts


September 2012 Monthly Meeting

Hello, everyone, it's time again for our monthly meeting. The meeting will be begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 13 at Remnants: fiber[culture] in north Austin at 10435 Burnet Road, Suite 106

Show and Tell
  • Bring an item you finished or are working on to share with the group!  
  • We love seeing WIPs and finished quits. 

Quilt Backs!

After Show and Tell, we are going to discuss QUILT BACKS!  Have you enrolled in Elizabeth Hartman's free craftsy online class titled Creative Quilt Backs?  If not, try to enroll before the September meeting for a preview of our discussion.

The discussion on quilt backs will be broken into four categories:
  1. A back using a large scale print
  2. A back with a pieced strip
  3. A back a block that matches the front
  4. A super scrappy back

If you have an example of one or more of these quilt backings on a quilt at home, please bring it!  We want this discussion to be interactive and full of examples

Lastly, we will have a short demonstration with Bobbi Brekke (secretary of Austin MQG) and Jessica Sloan (owner of Remnants) who will show a quick trick on how to use the least amount of fabric possible when making backs for small quilts.
