Everyone is invited to make a Summer themed Itty Bitty Picture Perfect Quilt, which will fit perfectly on the 8.5" x 11" stand up acrylic frame that each member received from the guild at last year's November meeting as our annual gift (if you can't find yours, these are pretty inexpensive at Wal-Mart or OfficeDepot, etc.).
- Make a Summer themed mini quilt that has a raw size of 8 3/4" x 10 1/2" before binding. The quilt should be in portrait orientation.
- Hem one of the short edges of a piece of fabric 8 3/4" x 9 1/2" and add it to the back of the quilt, raw edge aligned to the top. This will act as the sleeve for the acrylic stand.
- Add a binding as normal.
- Stand back and marvel at your creativity and craftsmanship/womanship!
- Place your quilt (and just the quilt - keep your acrylic stand) in an unmarked brown paper bag and bring it to the June meeting!
As in November, we really encourage everyone to make their quilt be beautiful and steal-worthy, something that you'd really like to keep! I liked the one I made in November so much, I made one for myself!
If you want inspiration from our winter themed quilts, check out the photos and photo video from our November meeting.
