2015 Area 3 Meetings

Just a reminder to all Area 3 chapters that if you are interested in hosting an Area 3 meeting in 2015 that you will need to get back to me with a firm commitment and date no later than January 1, 2015.

Right now, we have four chapters who are interested in hosting/co-hosting meetings:

*Pine Needle Quilters of Norway/So. Paris on May 5th

*Cross Country Quilters of Bethel in September

*Classic Quilters of Lewiston/Auburn and Scraps and Patches of Poland in October

If you have any questions on holding an Area 3 meeting, just contact me and I will be happy to help!

Quilting Tip of the Week 10.30.14

Always lay out your unwrapped quilt batting overnight to allow it to breathe opened and spread over a bed or large table if possible.

If you still have wrinkles, use a hair dryer on low/medium heat to remove them.

By doing this, your batting will lie flat and make layering your quilt so much easier to do.

Fun With One Block Quilt

If you attended the last Area 3 meeting, you may have been impressed that a quilt that looked so complicated is actually just quarter and half square triangles!

Doreen Maxwell was good enough to forward a photo of her finished quilt made for her niece and information on the book the pattern came from. It's "Fun With One Block Quilts" by Cheryl Malkowski. I was intrigued by the pattern and went to my used book resource ( ). I've been buying from them for about twenty years now and found a used copy for a couple of dollars. In fact, the media book rate postage costs me more than the book!

I'm going to make this a leader and ended project for 2015.
