Looking Ahead and What About that BOM?

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick update on what you can look forward to at the July meeting!

One of our lovely guild members, Margaret McCullough, will be doing a program on how to complete that wonderful ruffled binding she showed us back in May.  See that sweet binding at the bottom of the apron that Margaret shared with us?  We are going to learn how to just whip one of those right up!

I also wanted to give you all a little more direction on the BOM, as there have been some questions.

First, since these blocks are all going to be made into a sampler type quilt for charity, they do not all have to be the same color.  For example, this month Jenn and Vickie shared the BOM with us in a blue color scheme.  However, we may or may not get enough blocks to make an entire quilt with just July's blocks and will need to include previous Block's of the Month into this quilt in order to complete it.  For example, we only received two completed blocks for June, and those blocks will need to be combined into another quilt. June's colors were yellow or purple and this month blue....so please feel free to make a block in any of those colors OR any color that will compliment the over all scheme at this point, possibly red or green.

Second, the link I shared with you;  Bitty Scrap Around Block, was for a completed 6.5 inch block.  If you refer back to the picture in the previous post, you will see that Jenn and Vicki combined four of these blocks to make one completed 12.5 inch block.  So, make four 6.5 blocks and sew them together to complete the BOM for July!

Our next meeting will be:   Thursday, July 31st

Don't forget to keep working on your Open Wide Pouch for the swap!  I've seen some pictures on InstaGram of some of the pouches heading to guild and you are not going to want to miss out!  

If you have any questions concerning swaps, BOM, programs, or anything guild related, please don't hesitate to ask!  Email us at cltmqg@gmail.com
