Jelly Bean Factory
Our November general meeting will be a Jellybean Factory, the biennial event on Northwest Quilters calendar that the Comforting Quilts (CQ) committee presents. It will be a sit and sew meeting, opening at 9:30am on Monday 13th November, at which we will all be working to make as many quilts as possible for Comforting Quilts.
In previous years we have made crib quilts but this year we’ll be making lap quilts because that is where we have the greatest need. CQ will provide all of the fabrics needed to piece the quilt tops, as well as the batting and backs. We will have two designs: our Staggered Stacks pattern that was so popular at our 2021 virtual Jellybean Factory, and one that uses nine of the Build-a-Blocks that have been designed by the public at our quilt shows.
We will also have tasks for members who don’t want to carry their machines to meeting: binding lap quilts, possibly tying quilts, and helping the machinists with fabric layout, pressing and trimming.
