November Moda Club Meeting

Our November Meeting was the last
meeting for 2015.  Thanks to all of you who joined us.  We hope we inspired you with what we've been up to, and we loved seeing what you made!

Looking into the New Year, 
many of us vow to use up our scraps.
Join me, by making this Scrap Tote to use in 2016.
 Basic Bag Construction
Instructions for Patchwork

Our featured quilt this month - 2 Step, by Maple Island Quilts

This is a Fat Quarter Friendly Quilt.

Our Book of the Month would make a nice gift!
A  handy little reference book!

 With lots of Holiday cooking to do,
we thought these little hot pad mitts are perfect!

Make for yourself or a friend

 Last month, Esther won this panel.  
This month she came back with a beautiful wall hanging!

At the evening group, Kay showed up with this
beautiful, quick quilt, made with 2 panels plus one more row. 

There sure was lots of wonderful Show & Tell!

The winner of our Show & Tell Box from 2015 is
Nancy Jacobson!

Shelby won our group quilt from 2015!
Congrats Shelby!

 Now, on to making our Group Quilt for 2016!
We are using our scraps too!
We made kits using (4) 2x7" strips
from our Row by Row Scraps.  All you need 
are (12) additional 2x7" strips from your scraps,
to make 3 completed blocks to add to the
2016 Group Quilt.
Blocks are due by January 30th please.

Our Group Quilt for 2016 is inspired by
 Please stop by the shop to pick up your strips if you were unable to make the November Moda Club Meeting.   DO NOT USE FLANNEL, BATIK OR HOLIDAY FABRICS.  Please do use complimentary colors to make a wonderful group quilt.  Anyone who participates in this quilt will have a chance to win it in November of 2016.
In addition, you will find a brown paper bag in your kit....
Please put a fat quarter, of what you consider to be your ugliest fabric, in the brown paper bag.  We will exchange these bags at the January Moda Club Meeting.  You will have until March to bring in something made with that "ugly" fabric.  
We will have a drawing and door prize for participants in March.

We are very excited about our 2016 Moda Club Plans
Our next Moda Club Meeting will be on 1/20/16

I will be hosting an Open Sew on 12/18/15, starting at 9:30-4p.m.
Come on in to sew with me, and complete those last minute gifts.
Bring lunch (microwave and refrigerator available), or take a break to go out to eat if desired.   Be sure to bring your own drinks too.  Extension cords provided.
