MPS Quilt College
Yes, it’s that time of year again. The month of May brings us our annual MPS Quilt College. We are divided into four “classes” and then rotated through four mini-workshops led by our member instructors. This is always a good evening to learn something new. This year, our workshops include:
- Sewing an accurate ¼ inch border–Marcia Sanderman and Teresa Koster, Instructors
- Making a hexagon out of a circle without sewing – just ironing–Judy Liebo, Instructor
- Constructing a 3 ½ square nine patch by using only two 4 ½ squares of fabric–Claudia Jakim, Instructor
- Pressing more accurately with starch/sizers and the use of a clapper–Linda Gillins, Instructor
I can say with confidence that a clapper is not someone sitting in an audience. But you’ll need to come to the meeting to find out what it is and what it has to do with quilting.
Also, we are going back to including themes for our Inspirations segment of the meeting, and the theme for May is “Spring Flowers”. As always, you are encouraged to bring your latest project to share with the group during our Inspirations. But if you also have a quilt that fits our theme, bring it along to share with us.
Don’t forget that guests are always welcome to our meetings. The first meeting is free!
