Thank you for attending our January 2016 Meeting!
Mighty Lucky Quilting Club
Today at 1:00 was our first meet up for the Lucky Spool challenge group.This month we learned about making bias tape, and using it as a design element in quilting. Members shared alternative ways of making the bias tape and placing it on their background fabric. Making and working with the bias tape seems to be a technique that people were unsure about at first, but are really enjoying it. Jill made this block (in the picture above) using bright, modern colors, and is contemplating turning this into a pillow!
For those of you that may not know, this is a monthly subscription club through a quilting website Lucky Spool. A popular quilt designer/teacher will teach a different concept (through PDF) for you to try each month of the year. You can sign up for the year or monthly, and all instructions are emailed right to you! This group will meet monthly at 1:00 pm before the RIMQG meeting to discuss that month's challenge and share ideas. If you are a paid RIMQG member, you can join the FB Group (see our FB page for members).
