Piedmont Quilters'
Guild

We love new members...

Come and visit
one of our 
monthly meetings!
Due to COVID-19 our usual monthly meeting at Starmount Presbyterian Church is on hold.  Please check our website regularly for information on the plan for each month's meeting.
*********************************
Our next meeting is:
Thursday, August 13, 2020
LOCATION:  Your home on your computer or smartphone via Zoom!

TIME:  Bea Mandel will be on the Zoom link at 6:30 PM but the Program will begin at 7:00 PM - Please watch for a Zoom meeting invitation email sent to guild members prior to the meeting.

PROGRAM:  Puffed Folded Star Ornaments or Coasters

This will be a tutorial on how to make some adorable puffed quilted ornaments that can also be used for a small or medium wallhanging, table topper or coaster. The size for the tutorial will be a six inch circle , which of course can be made larger if you increase your base size, which will be explained in the meeting. It requires minimal hand stitching and can be made in a half an hour or so , so it is a good project to work on while watching TV or meeting up with friends during a social distancing outing. 

Materials you will need :
1 - 6" piece of white or light solid material
5 different fabrics of high contrast ( cut into 3" squares - you'll need 8 stacks of the 5 different fabrics. 
1 - 6" piece of backing fabric
1 - 6" piece of batting
1 1/2" x 15" strip of binding fabric cut on the bias
pencil
ruler
needle & thread to match your fabrics
scissors
several pins
