January 2011 Meeting

 Angela McCorkle, Quilts With a Heart, presented the program for the January meeting of the Brownwood Quilters Guild.  Angela brought several beautiful quilts that were made with quick techniques and shared those techniques with us.

She demonstrated how the Tossed Nine Patch goes together from charm squares or from your own scrappy 5" squares. Also the Cinnamon Swirl pattern.  Both of these patterns are from Eleanor Burns. 

 She also showed us a quick method for making Flying Geese.  With this method you end up with four completed Flying Geese.  This method is used in Fat Quarter Stars, a quilt designed by Angela.

She also brought a quilt made by the Strip Tubing technique and demonstrated how the blocks were made by sewing together strips and a coordinating fabric into tubes and then cutting them apart with the Strip Tube ruler. 

After the demonstration guild members were invited to shop.  Angela brought a good selection of fabric,   notions and kits from her store and it was very tempting to everyone!  Thanks Angela for a great program.
