A few brave souls came out in the cold and ice last Saturday and had fun at the January Sew-In.  Napkins were made, a baby quilt started, T-shirt quilts prepped and new techniques were tried from a great new book.  It was a good day to stay inside and sew.  Bring any show & tells you might have and share at the Thursday meeting.  Hope to see you there!

Three quick links

Three quick links to share...

1. Vendor Show
A quick FYI to let you know about an upcoming event (1/25-1/26).  It is the Statesville Quilting & Needle Arts Extravaganza.  A complete list of vendors and information can be found at this link Statesville Quilting & Needle Arts Extravaganza.

2.  January Swap
Don't forget the January mini pouch swap.  They are very quick to make.  Look at the great ones made by Diane at O'Quilts blog.

3.  January BOM
Also, let's see if we can get a good showing for our January BOM.  Look at Courtney's great block at monpetitlyons blog.

That's it for now.  Have a great weekend.

January Swap & BOM

Do you have scraps?  I'm laughing because I know we could probably cover Charlotte with all of our scraps!  Let's put those scraps to good use for the upcoming January meeting.  We have planned a fun swap and a block-of-the-month.

Block-of-the Month

Remember - Each block you make and turn in gets you a chance to WIN THEM ALL. January's block is:

BLOCK - Another Star Quilt Block / Tutorial by Fresh Lemon Quilts
COLOR - Modern fabric, bright colors, white background
TUTORIAL LINK: -  Fresh Lemons Tutorial

Jaunary Swap

Jennifer M. has planned a fun zipper pouch swap.  I made one yesterday using the tutorial and it takes less than an hour and very little fabric to make these cute little pouches.  Don't let the word  z i p p e r scare you.  This one is super EASY.

Here are all the details from Jennifer...

Hey y'all! Our January swap is a zippy coin pouch based on this tutorial:

Please use the tutorial above to create your version of the same pouch. Please use bright colors and modern fabric.

Can't wait to see yours and swap in January!
See you at the meeting.

Complete details of the January meeting location will be coming this week.
