December 2023 Holiday Meeting Party challenges:
Mystery Swap: Keeping up with the tea cup theme from June, Eve has challenged members to make a Mug Rug (aprox 6″x8″) using a Cup Theme. These can be paper pieced, created using cup fabric, collage quilted, applique, etc. The sky is the limit. Eve did mention that if you plan to add 3-dimentional embellishments, they should be added along the outside edges so as not to topple a cup that may be placed on top of the mug rug. Please WRAP your mystery swap!
Star Blocks: There are two star blocks that members were asked to make. Part of the blocks will be used for a block lottery that a participant can win and the rest will be put together for donation quilts. The first Star is a wonky Confetti Star that is foundation paper pieced using a Black background and Silver for the star itself. The second is 12 inch Sawtooth Star block using Midnight Blue for the background and Gold for the star itself. Please find patterns in the November newsletter.
Left, Right, Center: Please bring 3 Fat-Quarters in any of the following colors… Yellow, Gray, Black, or Low Volume.
