Cuddle Quilt block tutorial using precut strips

For those who couldn't make it to this year's Cuddle Quilt workshop, this is a tutorial on how to make the quilt blocks. These blocks use pre-cut (2.5") strips.

Be aware that once the strip sets are cut and opened, all the edges of the blocks are on the bias. Careful pressing and spray starch will help keep their shape.

Paper Piecing on display!

Our September Choo Choo Quilters guild meeting will focus on paper piecing, presented by Team Two. Please bring the following supplies to the meeting:
::   Hand sewing needles
::   Thread
::   Scissors
::   Fabric scraps in green, brown, and white or ecru

We will be making a small paper pieced tree for the program.

We will also be basking in the glow from the AQS Quilt Show in Chattanooga the week before, so we'll have a time for Show and Tell, with special emphasis on classes you took, things you bought at the show and fun stories of your adventures at the show.  

We'll see you on Monday, September 19Valleybrook Presbyterian Church starting at 6:30 pm!
