When: Saturday, March 24, 1 pm – 4 pm
Where: Boise Public Library, 715 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise, ID (Marion Bingham Room on 3rd floor)
This month we will be working on making quilts for the refugee community here in Boise! Everyone who participates will be given a bundle of fat quarters that was donated by Massdrop to the BoiseMQG, as well as some coordinating solid fabric. Members will then make simple, quick quilts to be finished at following meetings. While the Agency for New Americans will accept any size quilt and you are welcome to make whatever size you like, we will be focusing on lap and twin sizes. We kindly ask that members provide the batting and backing fabric for the quilt(s) they make. If you need ideas as to what kind of quilt top you want to make at our meeting, visit our Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.com/boisemqg/charity-quilt-ideas/
The Massdrop fabric bundles are from Birch Organic Fabrics, including:
Bear Camp – 18 fat quarters
Old West Charm – 14 fat quarters
Farm Fresh – 20 fat quarters
As always, please bring your completed modern projects 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)
