Next Meeting: Saturday, October 27th

Our next meeting: Saturday, October 27th at 2pm
at Ryco Creative Sewing Center, 25 Carrington Street, Lincoln

On the agenda:

Show & tell - This is more and more fun every time we get together!  Bring a project to show to the group (in progress is fine)!  

Table topper challenge - Time to see the results from our solid table topper challenge!  (See further down in this email)

Making Nametags - At our September meeting, we were all inspired by the totally cute polaroid quilt that Tina shared (photo above!).  Next meeting, we'll share some directions on how to make your own polaroid block to use as a name tag at future meetings.  

Technique Demo - One of our members will share some of her quilting know-how by doing a demo - more details to come.

Please join us and bring any interested quilters along!

Table Topper Challenge:
Make a table topper of some kind (a table runner, circular or oval shape, depending on the shape of your own table).  Use only solid colors!  
This is a great chance to try out one of the elements that's characteristic of modern quilting: the use of solid fabric.  Any solid will do - take inspiration from the colors of your kitchen or dining room, from the season (fall colors!) or just what you like.  We'll show these off at our next meeting.  If you want to swap, feel free, or make the project for yourself.

Here are some tutorials to get you inspired:
