This month at QGOA: June Meeting – Improvisational Piecing with Donna, Denny and Debby
Want to learn about Improvisational Piecing?
If you do, be sure to join us at the June Guild Meeting on June 12! That night we will have QGOA members Donna Akins, Debby Rake and Denny Cornett tell us their take on the idea of improvisational piecing, and we will see samples of their work. We will learn about different ways to do improvisational piecing, such as rescuing orphan blocks, fun ways to spice up borders and sashing, and different types of blocks.
On Wednesday, June 13, Donna will teach us how to make our own unique fabric. We’ll be cutting with NO ruler, and we’ll make strip sets, slice, dice, add something new, and sew it all back together. We will learn to sew free form curve seams, and how to assemble horizontal and vertical units, and short, fat units with long, skinny units.
- Sewing machine and basic supplies (thread, snips, rotary cutter, cutting surface, etc.)
- Fabric: Strips, scraps, orphan blocks, any size or shape, any color or pattern
- Iron and ironing surface
The Quilters’ Guild of Arlington was established in 1984 to:
- preserve and encourage the art of quilting,
- provide instruction for Guild members,
- educate the public,
- and to promote a gathering of people with this common interest.
We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization and do many activities to further the interest in Quilting.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month.
