When: Saturday, August 27, 1 pm – 4 pm
Where: Victory Branch Library, 10664 W Victory Road, Boise, ID (Forrey Room Room, downstairs) on the corner of Victory/Five Mile – Please note that this is a different location than where we normally meet.

This month Laura Pukstas will be giving us a demo on using the Quick Curve Ruler. If you would like to participate please bring the following:

  • Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful (available online and at local area quilt shops)
  • Rotary cutter (45mm or 28mm)
  • New blade in rotary cutter
  • Cutting mat (a 12” rotating cutting mat works well for this block)
  • 12” or 12 ½” square up ruler
  • Basic sewing supplies (ripper, scissors, thread, pins, etc.)
  • Marking pen
  • Sewing machine with a neutral color thread
  • Tweezers or stiletto
  • 1/4 yard background fabric
  • 1/8 yard print fabric

We will be making 1 Chic Star block. If you want to make more you will need more fabric. Laura will be providing the patterns for the blocks. Please cut the background fabric into 8- 4” x 8” rectangles and from the print fabric cut into 4- 4” x 8”.

After the demo, members are encouraged to work on their own projects, so bring your sewing machine and sewing/quilting projects to work on.

As always, please bring your completed modern projects and your BOM to share with the group.

If you have them, it’s always a good idea to bring a power strip and/or small extension cord as well.

Not familiar with how our meetings work? We typically follow this format:

  • Quick announcements
  • Show and share
  • Sewing on individual projects, and of course conversation (or tutorial/presentation if one is scheduled)
