Bring Out Your Inner Sherlock!

Join us for a Mystery Quilt Along at the Tuesday Club!!  
We will tell you the supplies you need and what to sew each month.  The pattern will be a mystery.  You will channel Agatha Christie as you try to find out what we're doing!  

This quilt works well with scraps as well as being a great leaders and enders quilt!

We are gathering supplies and starting our first step to be completed by the September Meeting. 

*3 Charm packs (with a minimum of 40 charms each)
*3 1/2  yards in a solid. This will be for your blocks and the 1st 2" inside border. OR you can also use 3 Moda Bella Solid Charm Packs and get an additional *2/3 yard for the 1st inner border.
*Border 2 - 1 yard in print of choice

1st step:  From your solid fabric, cut 75 – 5” squares.  (approx. 10 strips of 5”) 
With one charm and one solid, make a triangle square.
……ooohhh such a mystery. Next step, next month!

Trunk Show by D and D

We loved the Trunk Show brought to us by Delene and Darlene and the many beautiful quilts they brought to share!
These are some of the quilts Darlene showed us. She has the funnest expressive personality and so much talent!

And Delene is super talented, too! We loved her idea for using shower curtain rings to hang small quilts. The clips hold the quilt and the rings can be slipped onto pegs or slipped over a rod to display the quilt! Genius!!

It was definitely "ALL BUBBLES!" 

 We loved it! Thank you Darlene and Delene!!!
