CPL Quilt Group

Tonight at 7:00PM we will have our Quilt Group meeting, featuring Grace, a local quilter. She is going to demonstrate the Paper Piecing Technique for making quilt blocks. For those of you who are not familliar with this technique, it creates very intricate patterns. Grace has completed 50 pattern squares — one for each state — and assembled them into a quilt. She will have it to show from 7:00 to 8:00PM and will also explain the process. It should be a very interesting demonstration. We also will have patterns for you to take home and try.

Check out Rich Traditions: Scrap Quilts to Paper Piece and 40 Bright and Bold Paper Pieced Blocks for more infromation on this technique.

From 8:00-8:45 we will have discussion on quilting. If anyone has something they have made or are making bring it to share with the group. Likewise, if there is anyone who would like to do a demonstration for us we would be excited to hear what you have to say. The topic could be any technique related to quilting. You can leave a comment with any questions and ideas.
