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, January 16th and we will be making economy blocks and holding a fabric swap of 3" fussy-cut squares! Please bring your sewing machine and general sewing supplies, plus the following:  3" squares that have been fussy-cut (These will be for swapping! You should bring 15 of your squares- of all the same motif, if possible- and we will swap with each other so that you leave with  3" squares that are all different! Please use your best, quilt shop quality fabric and look for motifs that are cute and fit nicely within a 3" cut square. For example, you could bring  3" squares that are fussy cut so they all feature a sweet little dog in the center. You will swap these squares and leave with a dog, a flower, a strawberry, a bird, a tiny house...etc.). You will also need (2) 3" squares and (2) 4" squares per block. These 2 fabrics will be crosscut into 4 triangles each and become the inner and outer triangles of the economy block. Please also bring your rotary cutter, mat and ruler! We will make the blocks a bit larger than necessary and trim them down as we go for accuracy!
