Dee has donated this quilt to be raffled off at our Retreat in April. Dianna Blackmer is in charge of the raffle. You do not have attend Retreat to win this beautiful quilt.
Member Dee Akers recently made kimonos for Girl Scouts who were doing a project about Japan.
Nancy Walter was kind enough to send photos of her finished T-shirt quilt and her grandson receiving it at Christmas. Thanks for sharing!
One of our recent Community Service projects is making quilts for the Warrenton Dialysis Center. Several are ready to be delivered to the Center, and were shown at our November business meeting. More are on the way, and photos will be posted as they are finished.
On October 29 and 30 we will participate in the Fall Farm Festival at Sky Meadows State Park. The Festival is held every year on the weekends in October, with a different emphasis for every weekend. We are included in the history weekend. Come visit us there.
On Tuesday, October 18, and Saturday, October 22, Rachel Paul will teach a two-part “Floating T-Shirt Quilt” class.
The class is free for FCQ members and $25 for non-members.
The Tuesday class will be at our regular program meeting and will consist of an overview of the project, cutting the t-shirts, fusing them to lightweight interfacing, and cutting framing and sashing fabrics.
Saturday’s class will be at Bethel United Methodist Church starting at 9:30, and we will be assembling the quilts.
If interested in taking the class, contact Paula Lorfano for the supply list and instructions. There is some preparation needed before the Tuesday class.
Last winter we decided to do a crayon challenge. Members drew crayons and made small quilts using only black, white, and the color they drew. Quilts from this challenge are on display at Fauquier Hospital through the end of August. Below is a slide show of the quilts, but they are better if seen in person.
Please join us on August 28.
