Turkey Tracks: April 29, 2018
Mt. Battie Modern April 2018 Meeting
This month we shared the March blocks we did for our Jen Kingwell “Long Time Gone” quilt challenge: tiny churn dash blocks sewn into two different bigger blocks and the crosses/star block.
Tori Manzi’s blocks are on the top; she is using grunge fabrics for the whole quilt. Vicki Fletcher, the left column, is making her quilt from this suite of fabrics. My blocks are in the middle column and are all Cotton+Steel. Becca Babb Brott’s are on the far right and are scrappy.
Here is a line-up of our star and cross blocks: Vicki, me, Tori, and Becca. It is always amazing to me how different our work can be for the same block. Sew fun!
Vicki is making this quilt, and I really love this block and the color palate she is using. I have never thought about using half-square triangles to make a large diamond block.
Anne Bargetz brought us another of her quilts. She is a new-ish member, and we are so enjoying getting to know her. She is—local peeps—also working at Marge Hallowell’s Mainely Sewing in Nobleboro. So say hello to her when you visit.
Next month: the traveling quilts come out to play again. Most of them will only have one more rotation before they go back to their owners to be finished. Owners will get them back in July.
