2. STRIPS FOR OUR GROUP QUILT
We are continuing to bring in strips for group quilts, which we are sewing together for Project Linus' wonderful cause. This is an ongoing project and benefits a wonderful cause!
a) Size: Please bring in at least one "strip" of fabric that is 44/45 inches wide (the width of quilting fabric from selvage edge to selvage edge). It can be any height, but should probably be at least 2.5 inches tall.
b) Pattern: You can piece the strip with interesting patterns. Alternatively, you can just bring plain strips (or excess Jelly Roll strips).
c) Color: If you piece your strips, please include at least a bit of white in the strip. If you bring in plain fabric strips, any color is fine.
Of course, don't forget your standard "Things to Bring" for each meeting (you can see the standards items HERE). Feel free to email if you have any questions.
See you on Saturday, May 19th at StitchCraft!
