Sit 'n Sew 2012

We hope you can join us this Thursday for the first meeting of our 2012 Sit 'n Sew quilt! We always meet on the first Thursday of the month and this year are making a beautiful quilt called "On Point" by Bits 'n Pieces.
This is a 9-month BOM program. During months 1-7 we'll make 2 blocks per month. Month 8 is dedicated to the center which can be pieced or appliqued. Month 9 is finishing.
Here's what you should bring to our first session:
Block piecing: A wide variety of fabrics to total about 6 yards. Fat quarters, scraps or yardage will do. The more the merrier!
Background: 2 yards (can be scrappy too).
You will also need fabrics for setting triangles, frames and borders, but don't worry about them now.
This first meeting will be mostly organizational, I don't anticipate actually sewing or even cutting until the February meeting. We'll take it easy and have fun with this one. No special rulers, just plain old cutting and sewing!
Check the class calendar on the website for dates if you need them.
The one time $40 fee covers class times for the entire year and your pattern pack.
See you Thursday!
