Sunday Afternoon at the Spencer

Guild members have been demonstrating quilting in the Central Court at the Spencer Museum on Sunday afternoons. Jerrye VanLeer organizes tables, etc.
Carol Jones led a free-cutting workshop on July 11th.

She and Georgann picked the fabrics carefully beforehand.

Here's the how-to:
Stack up 4 or 5 squares or rectangles

Cut the whole stack with a curved line.

Q: Cut the squares in two pieces? Three pieces?
A: Whatever.
Kathe, Deb R. Georgann and Linda F. are hesitant at first.

Re-sort the pieces so you have different colors and re-piece the squares or rectangles.

Press them and put them on the design wall.
They won't have neat edges because we ignored seam allowances.

It got too big for the design board

Perplexed looks as we shifted the pieces around.
And it's 3:00 and we have to go.
Carol rolled up the flannel and took it home. She trimmed the edges and sewed it together.

A snapshot of the finished piece.
We are going to quilt it and donate it to a charity auction.


  1. That is very cool. I hope you bring it to the night meeting,
    so I can see it in person.

  2. ooh, a group of people all working this way... what a dream... glorious. Where will the charity auction be... I'd buy that! fabulous!
