Message from the Chairperson, Dorothy Stockell :

Dear Members, we are back live on the Kenya Quilt Guild Blog!!!  Make sure you stay tuned as we keep updating our blog.  Here’s looking forward to some interesting challenges in 2017!

It was wonderful to see so many of you at last month’s Guild meeting! It was a great meeting, and there was a fantastic response when we announced our Challenge for January 2017.

Each month, we will make a little quilt in one of these sizes:
– coaster (4×4)
– mug rug (7×11)
– placemat (11×18)

To decide what we will make, we’ll pick a color, a theme and a technique from a chart.

This month we picked green, hand(s) and appliqué.

We’re going to make mug rugs! If you can find an electric lime green like the photo, sew on.

You can use any appliqué method, and use the green for the background or the hands. The hand can be your hand, a child’s hand or an imaginary hand. You can use as many hand shapes as you want. The mug rug should be quilted, with binding, and the finished size should be 7×11 inches.

We will collect the little jewels and eventually sell them for charity.

The idea behind the challenge is to give us an excuse to try different techniques and be creative and to bring us together in a joint effort.

If you have any questions or need help with learning appliqué, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re happy to help!

I hope you will enjoy the challenge, and I can’t wait to see the show of hands next month!

Happy Sewing !!!
