May 2, 2016 Folded Flower Hands-On Program With Patsy Morris



May 2, 2016 General Meeting Program: Folded Flower

With Patsy Morris

Patsy Morris has changed her venue for the May program. Instead of giving the members her Folded Flower Demonstration program, she heard the members at the last meeting and will be giving them what they want…
Patsy changed the program from demonstration to hands-on, so bring the following supplies:

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
FIVE.....5" squares of paper (precut) any color
TWO......5" squares print fabric for flowers (charm packs work well)
THREE...5" squares green plain or print fabric for leaves
Iron and small ironing surface, Best Press or spray starch, glue stick.
Background fabrics pale blue, off white, green needs to be solid. 10 to 12 inches square.


In addition to Patsy’s great program, the Pueblo West Quilters will have a

HUGE FABRIC SALE PRIOR TO THE MEETING
6:23 – 6:53 p.m.

We need a couple volunteers to assist setting up at 6:03 p.m. and help during the sale.

Any items not sold here will be sold at a garage sale – probably at a higher cost.

The LUV Quilts, Wounded Warrior Quilts & Pillowcase projects are going strong! Thank you for your contributions!

I have noticed the pillowcase count is low – zero and Janet indicated the WW Quilts are wrapped in pillowcases when the quilts are given to the veterans. Soooo, if you have any pillowcases to contribute, they’d be greatly appreciated.

Also, the annual Nursing Community Baby Shower at CSU-Pueblo will be held June 3rd, before PWQ’s June meeting. We’re collecting baby quilts and other shower items at the May meeting.

And that’s what’s happening in May! Bring quilts and pillowcases. Purchase fabric and patterns to make more! Stay for Patsy’s folding technique. And don't forget your Show N Share!
