Santa Rosa Quilt Guild Donation Update


Dear Wiltwyck quilters,

I just received an email from the president of the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild saying that they have been SWAMPED with fabric donations from all over the WORLD.  That says something wonderful about all of us quilters!  They DON’T NEED MORE FABRIC (very busy sorting what has been donated) but STILL NEED THREAD.  So, instead of bringing fabric to our December meeting, could you bring a spool of thread?  I will still collect and mail it to them.  Thanks.

Patchwork Bag Pre-Class Instructions and Cutting List

Here are photos of the pieces you will need to cut:

Patchwork Bag Cutting Photos

See the files above and note the info below:
The exterior should be quilted prior to workshop.
These are the side panels which the ‘angle’ will be cut in the workshop. Fuse the interfacing to TWO of the panels
The linings need to have the interfacing fused to each one.
If someone wants to use a prequilted fabric that works as well.
Thread to blend with the bindings works the best. Extra needles, zipper foot and regular sewing foot, pins etc….
