Hex's, originally uploaded by tutti fruiti.
July is just slip-slipping away from us, and our next meeting is on Sunday 26 July!
We are going to learn how to do English paper piecing. It's a patchwork technique, and is possibly something your mother or grandmother or great-grandmother used for piecing quilts. It's a load of fun, and once you know how to do it, the possibilities are endless! You can make a flower out of hexagons and applique it to a skirt or a tote bag ... or make a doll quilt ... or a cushion! Check out Flickr for more ideas!
I will be offering kits of pre-cut piecing papers and a bit of template plastic, and they will only be a few dollars (under $5). If you need a kit, please let me know by
Tuesday night 14th July! I need to order the shapes from WA and they take time to arrive. (It's OK - I've ordered enough for everybody, so just let me know by the 22nd so that I know how many I have to package up.
If you go with the kit, all you need to bring with you are:
* scraps of fabric that you like (at least 3 inches square)
* a pencil
* (sharp) needles, pins and thread
* a pressing stick/Clover presser/paddlepop stick.
* $6 for the room hire
See you at Downer Community Centre at 2 pm on the 26th! Don't forget to RSVP below!
