A few months ago the art quilt group Starry Eyed Quilters started a grab bag challenge.  We bought bunches of scraps together and grabbed them out of a large tote vowing to use at least a bit of every fabric we received.  We intended a palette challenge.. sort of a  ‘make lemonade’ concept.  That was too tough.. it was too ‘scrappy’.. so we softened that constraint.  The results are varied and glorious.  Here are the ones revealed this month.

Here’s a copy of the program from our celebration day.

2018 NQD program

We are making these blocks with white and bright “happy” colors. Please bring completed blocks to the December meeting. For more information, contact Dawn Schaben (number and addresses in our Member Directory).

Las Vegas Blocks

Here is the pattern for the block that I will be asking individuals to make tonight at the guild meeting. I will be asking them to make a block so we can make quilts like we did for the Orlando shootings.  We will all make Block A. The blocks should be made with a bright happy color and white.

Thanks,

Kristen Farwig sends 3 recommendations she found on the great but now defunct site QuiltUniversity.com: 
 
Joyce Noell recommends searching for fabrics here —
 
Kim Clark says, “I have found some older material by typing in the name of the design found on the selvage edge if still on the fabric, and the name of the designer in the search box of the internet.”
 
Kathy Martin recommends Fabric.com
“They have just about everything and the site is easy to use.”
 
The quilter who asked this question mentioned polka-dot fabric. I put this in a google search engine —
quilt fabric white dots on navy
— and got images of fabric on sale for $2.25 up.
