Sit and Sew Day News

Hello! Hazel here. Sorry for the long silence but I've been busy enjoying the summer and I'm afraid I've been neglecting my blogging duties! The Harrogate Quilt Show starts tomorrow and that signals the start of the Autumn term is imminent!

We'll be meeting more frequently from now on - about once a month. The first will be on Saturday 21st September at Deepdale Community Centre,  Boston Spa just south of Wetherby and a stone's throw from the A1. We'll meet from 10am to 4pm and you can either work on your own project or have a go at making a quilt similar to Andrea's quilt pictured above.

For those of you planning to stock up on fabrics at the show the requirements for Andrea's quilt are:
For a small version (30" square approx) you'll need 11 pieces of fabric 13" square in neutral prints or solids and one 13" square in a bright colour. Andrea added sashing and a border to hers so I guess a metre for the sashing and half for the borders should just about do.

For a larger version  (60" square)  you'll need 33 neutral 13" squares and three in the bright fabric. You would easily get three 13" squares from a half metre of fabric.

Please let me know if you are planning to come to the SASD as space is limited at Deepdale and we don't want to run out of tables!

Enjoy the show if you're going. Hopefully I'll post lots of photos in a few days time.
