March Show and Share:Daniela presented a tutorial on how to create a quilted purse or tote that uses pieces of a 1" metal tape measure to create a bag closure that will snap open and shut. Daniela emphasized the importance of being extremely careful when cutting the metal strips. She advised to round the edges with your scissors, always cut over a trash can to catch the small, sharp, pieces, and apply masking tape to trimmed edges so they won't cut through the bag fabric. Thanks Daniela!!.
UFO's: This very cold winter in Baltimore has inspired members to complete their unfinished quilt so they can make room for new projects.
We also saw some projects from classes attended on quilt design, bag construction, and piecing techniques.
