Hand embellishing quilts

Embellishments on a quilt.
Looking for ways to add a little zing and bling to your quilts? Consider embellishments.

At the July 21 Choo Choo Quilters Guild meeting, the program is about "Hand Embellishments." Come and see how thread, embroidery stitches, buttons, beads and other recycled ephemera can add texture, color and another layer of design to your quilted pieces.

To participate in the hands-on crazy quilt stitch sampler demonstration, bring the following supplies to the meeting:

  • embroidery floss
  • hand embroidery needle
  • scissors
If you have finished hand piecing or hand quilting your Choo Choo mug rug (and even if you have not), bring it for Show and Tell. The meeting starts at 6:30 pm and refreshments will be provided.
