Tips & Techniques
At each monthly meeting, one of our many talented members shares their knowledge with us. We have learned many wonderful tips & techniques so far, and we will be sharing that information on this page as we are able. This is also where you will find other videos that all quilters, no matter your level of experience, will enjoy and learn from.
Some of the upcoming tips & techniques that have been scheduled include:
Great tips on tracking your WIP's with Vicki
Gail will be sharing tips on ending your bindings
Appliqué techniques with Nancy
Cyndi will be talking about precision piecing
We are looking forward to learning from these talented ladies!
Cyndi shared valuable information about the many "feet" our machines can use. Look at your machine manufacturer’s site to see what OEM feet are available for your machine and what they’re used for.
Information and Videos
WIP's & UFO's
Let's face it, we all have them...WIP's, UFO's, whatever you prefer to call them. You know, those projects we've bought the fabric for but just haven't gotten around to working on them or we've started and just can't quite get it finished. Well, Vicki shared her process for organizing her projects and she's compiled many downloadable forms (click here) for you to try. You can also bring those projects to one of the many sew-ins that the guild is hosting. So let's get those projects out and check them off your list!
Have you ever struggled to pick just the right fabrics for your next quilt or project? We have two videos linked below that will help you with your color choices. In these videos, you will learn the different intensities of the color wheel, how to identify colors by their intensity as well as what colors add power or tone. This website offers many videos to aid you in choosing complimentary colors for your next project. Just type the word color into the search field. We can't see what you create next!
