2016 June Potluck & Meeting

We all enjoyed  a wonderful potluck with lots of games. Several people went home with enough two inch strips to make a small quilt! We welcomed Joan Gamble (Long arm quilter) and Caeley C.  as visitors and two of our senior life members: Ruth G and Jessica.

Kathy A shared a great recipe for making spray starch. Take the cheapest vodka you can find (better potato starch) add 1 ounce of vodka to 1 cup of water. Add a drop of scent such as linen (found in craft aisles for making potpourris), and spray away.

Wendy made a lap quilt for a wedding gift for friends from Parlee Beach. The pattern in he book had mixed the sizes of the templates, some were half scale. She had cut several pieces before she realized it so she made a mini version for herself!

Dixie found a pattern for bags so made a number of those from charm packs

She also made some Christmas candle mats.
