Xandi (Swap Captain) kicked off 2 swaps.
The first was the Block-In-A-Bag program. This month was the first exchange of bags and I can't wait to see these blocks at the end of the exchange.
The second swap is the Swap For Someone You Love (swap items due in October). I have Beth's 4 year old granddaughter as my swap recipient and I can't wait to sew something girly girly!
BLOCK OF THE MONTH (BOM)
We have a new BOM Chair, Cindi. She will be selecting the monthly BOMs, themes/colors and running the BOM program. Thank you Cindi! Remember for each block you turn in you get a chance to win all the blocks submitted that month. I LOOOVE the block for September.
Block: St Louis 16 Patch (Sew With Sass blog) http://sewwithsass.blogspot.com/2013/04/quilts-st-louis-16-patch.html
Color: Modern Scrappy
Due: September Meeting
RED CROSS BAGS
Woohoo, bags are already being made and turned in for the Red Cross.
|One of the beautiful bags already turned in!|
If you can help, the American Red Cross needs tote bags for their volunteers. These volunteers assist veterans and they need to carry various supplies with them. The bags should be big enough to hold a 3 ring binder.
You may use any pattern/fabric/style, but here is one the Red Cross shared with us http://mamaspocketbook.com/freebies.htm.
The bags will be due at the OCTOBER meeting.
