     Zoom -  Galactic Quilt- A diamond log cabin

    Log Cabin style quilts are some of my favorites to make and to look at, the variations on such a simple and humble block are endless. In this class you will learn how to draft a template, work with a large 60 degree angle diamond, and how to square up after each round of sewing to achieve a perfect block without a paper foundation

    Supply List

    Template Information - Please review. Pre workshop homework.

     Zoom -  On Point

    Learn how to draw and create freezer paper foundations for precision piecing. This technique is similar to paper piecing but foundations are reusable and there is no tearing out bits of paper afterwards! We will use the On Point quilt to learn the technique, and will discuss how to apply it to many other patterns.

    Free - Lone Robin - Progressive Quilt Challenge

    (Each month a new element will be emailed to all participants on the dates to your left.)


    Julia McLeod of Silk & Salvage has invented a new quilting game she calls the Lone Robin! It’s part progressive quilt, part mystery quilt, and will be a whole lot of fun when we compare quilts at the end of it! 

    Participants will do this for six months: Each month we’ll complete a stage of our quilt, following that month’s instructions from Julia.  You will get new instructions monthly starting in June through November and catch up in December.       

    We will reveal our finished tops in January, date to be announced. As added incentive, every quilter who shows their finished quilt top in January will be entered in a raffle, which offers a chance to win one of four $25 gift certificates from one of our Member Affiliates.    

    See the Lone Robin web page for this month's element.

    Zoom Show & Tell- Locked Down and Breaking Out

    I'm guessing no one in the guild (or anywhere else) has ever experienced anything like the sweep of the pandemic. We could have curled up in a tiny ball and cried - and maybe some of us did - but then we all got going. Our guild sewed over 3,200 face masks for health care and emergency services providers. We've not slowed down at all on the Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project. We've supported our local quilting stores as they went entirely online. I'm guessing that many of us looked on our quilting as a lifeline, something to keep us grounded during these unprecedented times. Well, let's see 'em, guys and gals. It's time to share projects you've completed since November 2019. Big or small...pandemic-inspired or pure escapism...let's join to celebrate the unquenchable creative process we all love so much.

    The guild’s annual Show and Tell night is coming up, ladies and gents, and it’s time to show off those fabulous creations that we’ve all been working on!  Whether you’re just starting out, or are a seasoned pro, we’d love to see what you’ve created since last year.  Each and every work of art is welcome with no judgment; this is an event to celebrate the artistic process we all so enjoy.

    You can show up to two items, so look through your finished quilts, wall hangings and garments and decide which ones you want us to see. If you had a quilt displayed at PIQF this year, we’d love to see it. Not all our members have a chance to see your work at that venue. Our entry form is online this year and even those who are hesitant have told us how easy it is to fill out.
