There is no such thing as wasted time

There is no such thing as wasted time. Give a quilter a piece of fabric and their imagination and it is amazing what is created. A good example is the “crazy quilt” class that was held in September. All those odd shaped pieces were incorporated into blocks for a cushion or a quilt. No pattern required.

The second class in September was a “Ronney Bag” using upholstery material. The results were awesome, as you can see from the photos taken after the meeting at Show and Tell.

Coming up in October will be a class on placemats displaying the “little twister” pattern. One other day will be dedicated to making comfort quilts.

At our meeting we welcomed four new members. It doesn’t matter whether you classify yourself as a beginner, an intermediate or experienced quilter, there is always something new to learn. And there is always someone available if you have questions.

John Paul II Collegiate has invited REQ members to visit and view the finished quilts the students will make in class. It has always amazed me how the same log cabin pattern can produce such a variety of quilts.

November will be here sooner than expected. There will be a class featuring “Quilt As You Go” and our marathon featuring a jean bag.
