October 2017 Sew Day – Join Us!

When: Saturday, October 28, 1 pm – 4 pm
Where: Library! At Bown Crossing – 2153 E. Riverwalk Dr. *note different location*. We’ll be meeting in the David Eberle room.

This month we will be creating blocks for a quilt to donate to #quiltsforvegas. At the request of the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild we will be making the greyscale block from Cluck Cluck Sew. The Boise MQG will provide the colored fabric for the blocks, as well as the quilt back (thanks Massdrop!), but we need members to bring white, solid fabric for the background. We will set up cutting, sewing and ironing stations so we can whip out a quilt top quickly.

We also need volunteers for:

  • Newish quilt batting in good condition for a quilt about 48”x60” or larger
  • Quilting
  • Binding

We have limited space at the library this month and a quick deadline (quilt needs to be in Vegas by Nov. 15) so we ask that you bring machines and supplies to work on this project only. For more information about the project and to view the block, check out the website:

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)
