Shelley Bell has stepped in to design and coordinate monthly challenges for fun and well to challenge us beyond our comfort zones! Thank you Shelley. Shelley will set each months’ parameters and following that months’ General Meeting, each members’ contribution photo forwarded for Show & Tell, will be added to this page.
If you would like some instruction or maybe learn another way of adding letters to your quilts, I’m sure there are good video tutorials on YouTube. If you are a member of The Quilt Show (thequiltshow.com), good shows are #0907 Word Quilts with Tonya Riccuci and Show #1610 How to Put Letters on Quilts with Joanne Sharpe. Craftsy.com has Word Play – Personalize your Quilts with Sarah Fielke and Learn to Stitch Free-Motion Script with Heather Thomas.
The challenge for April is improv curves with 2 curves per block and four solid colors. There are so many really fun ways to arrange these blocks.
