Basics, Tips and Hints

KLQ’s February meetings was a smash hit as long-time member Margaret Mans shared loads of information to a packed room of onlookers.

Margaret covered everything from thread types to squaring extra-wide backing fabrics, specialty tools and pantographs…the information was abundant, as was all the number of quilts she shared with the membership.

In addition to the Margaret’s presentation, February’s meeting included it’s regular show and share of projects made by the group.

Debbie Damitio shares her new addiction love of machine embroidery in quilting.

A guest appearance of the online web store Fat Quarter Shop’s original Bloom-Topia quilt was brought by Sondra Davison. The quilt is on tour to each blogger participating in the charity quilt along. More information is available here.

A new, fun feature of this month’s meeting was “bring a thread that best represents you.” Selected members brought a thread and shared a bit about themselves and why they chose their particular spool of thread. Earl Barrager brought his spool of “Las Vegas Gold.”

For a complete recap of the meeting, read the meeting minutes and check out lots more pictures on the gallery page.

April is a packed month. KLQ’s speaker/instructor is Tia Curtis – more about her and her class is available on the Next Meeting page.

In April, KLQ is also hitting the road again with an overnight bus tour shop hop. More about that on this page.
