Yes, you know these blocks—the ones stuffed in the back of a drawer in the sewing room, or tucked in a box of fabric with the plan to make more, the sample block made as a test block, or blocks made in that class from 5... 10... 15 years ago?? Orphan quilt blocks. We all have them!
|Bring your orphan quilt blocks and bits to the September guild meeting.|
Your mission before the meeting:
- Go through your stash. Find those orphan blocks and bring them to the meeting.
- While you search for blocks, pick out any supplies, books, notions and other sewing/quilting items you no longer want. Bring those to the meeting for a Quilters Flea Market. (Proceeds will go to purchasing backing fabrics for our Chambliss community service quilts.)
- If you've made something from orphan blocks, bring it for Show and Tell.
- Don't forget your black-and-white August quilt blocks for a chance to win a prize!
No longer will you feel the weight of those lost, forgotten, or lonely orphan blocks. You can make them into something fab-u-lous to amaze your friends and silence the quilt police.
