March 2015 Swap for CLMQG members

At our January 10 meeting Terri D (one of our Swap Coordinators) announced a new voluntary swap for CLMQG members.  Here are the details from Terri in case you missed the meeting.

Due:  March 8, 2015 meeting

Swap: MUG RUG - the object of this swap is to have fun exploring the decorative stitches on your sewing machine.  This is your chance to show off the fancy stitches on your sewing machine and use them in a small quilt project.

What you will make:
MUG RUG aka "small art quilt" which measures approximately 7" x 9".  These small quilts should be made with washable materials and the edges finished with a binding so they will hold up in the laundry.

Requirements:

  • Fabrics should be 100% cotton "quilt shop" quality.
  • Straight and zigzag stitches should be used only for piecing the small quilt.
  • At least 25% of your small quilt should have some negative space to showcase the decorative stitches/quilting.
Participation in this swap is voluntary; to participate just bring your small swap quilt to the March 8, 2015 meeting.
