Stitchin' Mission #17 - Third Lesson

At St. Luke's Episcopal Church, last evening we made lots of sandwiches! Of course, they were of the low-cal variety.

Quilt sandwiches covered every available table space as 25 new and experienced quilters buddied-up to layer each backing, batting (100 percent cotton, or low-loft poly) and top, and then tie the layers together with colorful yarns.

Dorthea and Charlotte

Newbies also listened-in on an overview of straight-stitch and free-motion machine quilting, and learned about a variety of ways to mark quilting designs, and the marking tools for doing so.
