I spent Saturday with the members of the Mary's River Quilt Guild. We participated in a paper piecing class to create the 4th of July quilt pictured above. This quilt will be our 2010 raffle quilt.
Earlier in May a group of volunteers gathered to cut all of the fabrics needed for this quilt.
Volunteer quilters began arriving at 9:30 am ready for a full day of paper piecing.
This is one of the main paper pieced units with a curved arc unit added to the top
When I arrived home Saturday evening, I pulled down the driveway.....Dancer & Freckles were there to greet me with a view of Mary's Peak in the background.
This is Jan Tallis, who completed the very first paper pieced unit of the day!
Jan is responsible for producing the MRQG Newsletter.
Linda, Marcia & Kelly kept things lively in the back of the room
Paper Piecing is all about sewing on the lines
By the end of the day there were piles of completed units all over the classroom.
This is a HUGE help to our raffle quilt committee.
Please see Debbie van der Sommen to check out a packet of blocks to paper piece.
The block packets will be at the next Mary's River Quilt Guild Meeting, May 28, 2009, 7pm, Benton County Museum, Philomath Oregon
I had a fun day with the quilters and it was good to be home.
