February Sew Day Highlights

We had a full house at the IQSCM on Saturday with 25 LMQG members in attendance. Sewing alongside us was the Quilts of Valor group, which was pretty fun! We were mingling back and forth, seeing what everyone was working on. It was one big quilting party!

The focus of the day was sewing curves. Three of our members demonstrated a few different ways to sew them. 

Top Row: Kristie Jarchow demonstrated how to use the Quick Curve Ruler and had a completed pillow to show one of many possible designs.

Middle Row: Mary Dittenber stacked fabric and cut it with a rotary cutter to make wavy curves.

Bottom Row: Deanna Larson showed how to cut and sew a traditional drunkards path block using a template. 

Several of us then tried sewing something curvy. Here are some of the results!

A few members had  Show and Tell

Top L-R: Sarah Maseth, Carol Friesen
Bottom L-R: Carol Friesen, Julie Karjala

Thank you to Kristie, Mary and Deanna for helping us build our confidence with sewing curves!
Our next Sew Day will be April 8th, 2017 at the IQSCM.
