August & September Sew Day Highlights

We've enjoyed two sew days in a row at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum,  having one in August AND September!
The focus for the August sew day was "Wonky Houses." The scraps were flying as Kristie Jarchow showed us how to make some fun house blocks! Finished blocks can be made into wall hangings for Habitat for Humanity.

Our guild's latest challenge, "Make A Statement," is to make a quilt of any size that features words. Have you started yet? They are due at the October meeting! 

September's "What Are You Trying To Say?" was focused on adding text to our quilt projects. Phyllis Higley, Kristie Jarchow and Jennifer Van Dyke presented lots of ideas for our "Make A Statement" challenge! Paper pieced letters, fabric paint, thread writing and appliqued letters were shown for inspiration. 

There was a variety of quilt projects being worked on and the lovely ladies of the QuiltCon Charity Quilt team made progress on the charity quilt. 

The next sew day:
