Raffle Quilt Update

In May the guild will be working on next year's raffle quilt.  Here are the dates;
May 15 at 9:am Part one; the Maple Leaf block
May 22 - Part Two the Log Cabin portion of the block.  Since this is also the AGM and windup I'm not too sure at what point we will work on the block.
We hope everyone can make 2 - 3 blocks.
Definitely NO pastels, funky, art deco or psychedelics for either the Maple Leaf or Log Cabin fabrics.
For the maple leaf portion; a 12" square of  a homespun fabic  to make the leaf and stem.  Ideal colours are greens, reds, oranges, browns and rusts.  The leaves should be all one colour of fabric - not an assortment as in the photo.
 The guild will supply the background fabric and you'll receive printed directions on the 15th May as well as the background.
For the log cabin portion of the block we want  2 1/2" wide strips of assorted fabrics.  Ideal colours are greens, tans, reds, oranges, golds, blues, browns and rusts.  Homespun style.  Plaids in those colours are OK but soft style.  The blues will add a punch but nothing too wild.  The tans should not be beige  but a darker shade.
Any questions contact Lesley, Gayle, Laura Jean or myself.
