Workshop Openings at Q.U.I.L.T., Inc.

This was sent to me by Linda A. It’s about some workshops with openings at Q.U.I.L.T., Inc. Guild in Delmar. I am attaching the descriptions. You can go to their website for all the details. www.quiltinc.org

Hi all,

April and May 2020 are fast approaching and Quilt Inc. of Delmar, NY are offering 4 great workshops – 1 full day and 1 half day workshop in each of April 2020 and May 2020. As there are still a few openings I would love this info be shared with members of the other area quilt guilds in case there are other quilters out there interested in joining us. 

If you like you can forward the attached files, or if that is too much, select the April and May 2020 Summary file. All information is available on the Quilt Inc. website and a link is on the page.

If you have any questions, please go to our website at www.quiltinc.org.

April and May 2020 Workshops summary for other guilds

2020 Challenge Block: “The Games We Used To Play”

Participants will create a 20″ x 20: block to interpret the games played by children 50 or more years ago. (Examples: hopscotch, jacks, jump rope, tag, dodge ball, etc.)

The following rules will be observed:
1. The block must clearly illustrate at least one childhood game.
2. The block must measure exactly 20″ x 20″.
3. The block may be quilted, but does not have to be. Do not bind the block.
4. The block must contain BOTH a pieced portion and a sewn appliqué (by hand or machine) portion as a significant part of the overall design. Glued or iron-on appliqué is not permitted.
5. The block may contain 3-D items as part of the design. These items must be securely attached.
6. The block may contain juvenile fabric with children and/or games printed on it. It may be used in small amounts within the block but may not be used as the sole reference to the chosen game.

The block is due by the May meeting.
