midcoast modern quilters
meets the 3rd saturday of each month at 10:30 am downstairs at alewives fabrics.
The next meeting of the Midcoast Modern Quilters will be Saturday, May 21st!
This month at Midcoast Modern Quilters we will be learning a fast, easy and innovative method for making postage stamp blocks using fusible lightweight "grid" interfacing. Members who would like to participate in the activity should bring (25) 2" squares (IMPORTANT: cut the 2" squares just a thread or two shy of 2", so blocks measure a "scant" 2"), their machines, a matching thread and general quilting supplies. They will also need a half yard of fusible, printed 2" grid interfacing (available at Alewives Fabrics). The activity will be lead by Dawn Elliott, and we will base the lesson on a tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman, author of several quilt books and a fabric designer for Kaufman Fabrics.
Midcoast Modern Quilters is a fun, friendly group of quilters who like to get together and enjoy each others company. Even if you've never joined a group or quild before, we encourage you to attend one of our meetings: all skill levels and types of quilters are welcome to attend! The only requirement is that you MUST love quilting!There is a $5 fee for all who attend, payable at the meeting.
