Fabric swap: Similar to the 2 1/2” squares swap that the branch did in 2015, we are going to hold a fabric swap of 5” squares or charm squares.
You can get 8 charm squares from a length of fabric so we hope to swap 80 squares (this may need to be revised when we finalise numbers!). If those interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org or text Ruth on 086-8211105, we can work out the maths and let people know how many squares will be needed.
We hope to be able to use some of Gillian Killick’s fabric that her family kindly donated to Loretta for the branch use and be in a position to collect the fabric squares in our November and December meetings. Fabric will be sorted over the Christmas and given back in our January meeting with a date of June for a finished Quilt top!
There's lots of great ideas on the internet about half-square triangle quilt patterns.
