My stitch group met. I always love our get-togethers!
First, a little show and tell with finished chicken scratch projects. Another great apron, this one lined and with a pocket.
A wonderful lined bag, with a pocket inside and a chicken scratch pin.
One of the stitchers is a kindergarten teacher and made these Very Hungry Caterpillars to teach snapping and buttoning. How creative!
Our project for the day was applique house blocks for the 2019 NHK Partnership Quilts. The theme this year is HOUSE and the rules are:
- size 15x15 cm + seam allowance of 1-2 cm
- no quilting,
- name in lower right corner,
- enclose a self addressed 62yen postcard, if you live in Japan and want to know in which quilt your block was added
- DEADLINE: July 31, 2018, when the block must reach NHK not postmark date
- send to:
NHK Sutekini Handmade
(or you can check out the Japanese website here.) I brought two applique houses I made in the past as examples, but I didn't need to because this creative group already had their own ideas.
Here's what we had at the end of our session. We'll work on them at home, them finish them up and get them in the mail before the deadline for receipt (July 31st).
Wouldn't you like to join in too? There is plenty of time to get your block finished and in the mail!
