Modern Patchwork...... by Elizabeth Hartman


Just in case you haven't noticed..... there is a new book out that has some great ideas and wonderful projects.

It is currently availible at Amazon.com, however check your local shop because it should be there soon. 

I believe QuiltWorks will have a few copies soon, but I bet they will not last long!

Bonus Tuesday Social Meet Up!

Oh, May, what is your deal? Rainy, sunny, cold, hot and now you have 5 Tuesdays? Sure, to those not a part of the most amazing quilt guild in Central Oregon, 5 Tuesdays doesn't mean much. For COMQG members it means 3 weeks without seeing your favorite quilting buddies. So, I propose that after the long weekend we circle the wagons over some grub and brews at the Bend Brewing Company. Tuesday is locals night so you'll enjoy pints of malty goodness for just $2.75 and half off appetizers until 6. Bring show and tell if you'd tell if you'd like and let's chat without the humming of sewing machines for a change!

What: COMQG Social Hour(s)
Where: Bend Brewing Company, 1019 NW Brooks St. Bend, OR, 97701 (just down from Pine Tavern)
When: Tuesday 5/29 @ 5PM

New Pattern to Try.....

Here's a great pattern Christy found!  

Christy's helpful hints:
I’ve had good luck elongating the longer side of the fabric rectangles.
I’ve used fabric that is 10x6 inches instead of 8x6 inches and had good luck.
Also, I have added tabs on the ends to help make pulling the zipper easier.
