Saturday, August 8th at 9:30 am we will have a members-only outdoor meeting in Jamesport. It will be a Show-and-Tell event – Bring all your projects created during the pandemic. The location and directions will be emailed to members.
In order for us to have this meeting, we will be following Covid policies. Please make sure that you wear a mask and keep a six feet distance between each other. Hand sanitizer will be available, but feel free to bring your own. Some chairs will be available, but you may chose to bring your own. Please email Karen by Thursday 8/6 to let her know if you WILL be attending -email@example.com. This way we can set up based on the amount of people planning on coming. There is an outdoor limit of 50 people and we CANNOT exceed that amount. Some light refreshments will be provided, but you may also bring your own.
For those that will not be joining us, pictures will be taken and will be posted on our Guild FB page.
If it rains, the meeting will be rescheduled for Saturday, August 15th and members will be notified by email.
The Theme is “A Quilters Quarantine”
Requirements: Make a 10.5” house block
We’d like to invite each member to create her own version of a House Block that measures 10.5” square. You choose the design of your house block and the colors that mean the most to you- all to reflect your time at home during this shelter-at-home period.
We decided it would be great to see each of your unique interpretations of the common House Block - in your own way.
If you do a search in Pinterest and type in - "Quilt house blocks patterns" - many come up to choose from and most are free.
The only requirement is it should finish at 10.5” square. You may make more than one block if you’d like to.
Turn in completed blocks at November Guild Meeting.
Some House Block Patterns to inspire you:
We hope you are as enthusiastic about the challenge as we are!
We regret to inform everyone that our 2020 Quilt Show scheduled for November 2020 has been cancelled due to Covid 19. We are now focusing our efforts on a November 2021 show and will keep everyone informed as our plans go forward. Stay safe and hope to see you next year!
January 5, 2020
Happy New Year! Can you believe it is the beginning of a new decade! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed some time with family and friends. Were you able to find some time to sew? There have been some good rainy days to work on those projects! It always amazes me during show-and-tell what a talented group of quilters we have in our guild.
There are still many things in the planning and learning stages for the new board members. Please be patient with us as we begin scheduling for the upcoming year and learning what needs to be done. The February meeting is in the planning stages and I will post the date, time and place by the end of the week.
Our first event will be on Saturday, January 25h at the Old Steeple Church in Aquebogue from 9:30- 4:00. We will be working on Charity quilts. I will be posting the supplies needed (if you want to participate in the scrap quilt challenge) or you are welcome to bring your machine to sew a quilt you are already working on. It will be a fun day. Hopefully, I will see you there.
I’m looking forward to a great year of sewing, learning new techniques and sharing with my ELIQG members and friends!
Cheers to a New Year, Karen Nicholson l
