Longarm Guild: How to Block a Quilt

Kentuckiana Longarm Quilting Guild Meeting at Quilted Joy
Kentuckiana Longarm Quilting Guild Meeting at Quilted Joy

The Longarm Guild will be meeting next Wednesday, July 3 at 10:00am in the Quilted Joy showroom.

After last month’s presentation about what quilt show judges are looking for, we’re going to continue our preparation for fair entries! This month Angela will be showing us how to block a quilt so it’s ready to hang beautifully with all it’s friends at the state fair.

Bring an unfinished top for the “How would you quilt this” segment. Get input from others on how to tackle a top and your latest quilts for show and tell.

Don’t forget your finished quilts for the UFO challenge! What’s a UFO? It’s an UnFinished Object, so all those quilts hiding in a closet just waiting to be quilted. If you bring a recently finished quilt (quilted and bound, label preferred but not required) for show and tell, we’ll add your name to the drawing. At the end of each meeting we’ll draw one name. The lucky winner will receive two small cones of Glide thread! We’ll save all the names and at the end of the year we’ll have a grand prize drawing. The more quilts you finish this year, the better your chances are of winning!

The Kentuckiana Longarm Guild is an informal gathering of quilters who love their stand up and sit down longarm machines. The group is open to owners of ANY brand longarm machine and is completely free. We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 10:00am.

Can’t join us in person for our monthly longarm guild meetings? You’re not the only one! That’s why we’ve created the Quilted Joy Clubhouse – an online machine quilters guild with a monthly “live” meeting on Facebook and Youtube.
