2021 December Take, 2022 March Make!
We switched it up this month, instead of a Make and Take, it is a Take away and Make, also known as Snip and Rip. We had loads of fun snipping our fat quarters into smaller and smaller pieces and passing them along. Each of us ended up with 5 sections. The goal now is to use all the pieces in a project of your choice to bring for show and tell.
April 2022 Make, May 2022 Take!
The challenge for May is to make a quilted postcard.
The postcards measured approximatley 4” by 6”, using any method: piecing, appliqué, felting, free motion quilting.
So much fun looking at all the terrific ideas, some even left messages on the back like a real postcard.
This is the last small project until Sept.
