Please be sure you have your strip piecing done BEFORE class! That means cutting and stitching them together. This 2 day workshop is being compressed to one day so it is important to come prepared by having your strip piecing done.

The supply list and instructions for cutting are available on Andi's website at http://www.andiperejda.com/illusion.htm.

Andi is making herself available if you have difficulties or questions about the cutting and sewing instructions. Please email her at apquilts@pacbell.net.

September

Guild Meeting

Date: September 13, 2010

Program: Community Quilts

SLO Quilters has a long history of community service in making and donating quilts to various charitable organizations. For more information, go to "Community Quilts" on this web site.

In September, we will have our annual work night. After our regular business meeting concludes, we will set up our sewing machines and get to work. Some quilters will cut, some sew, some design, and others will iron. There is something for everyone to do. It's a great opportunity to get something done, or started, and maybe do a little socializing along the way.
