|Hammersmith Quilters Guild
Plans are underway for our next show, which will be Saturday and Sunday, October 20 & 21, 2018. Our first
meeting of the quilt show committee will take place on Saturday, January 25, 2018 at 10:00 in the community
room of the Saugus Public Library. If you are interested in being a member of the main committee or one of the
"subcommittees", please come to this meeting.
Our raffle quilt will be based on Tula Pink's "Gridlock" quilt design, which can be seen in her book, "100 Modern
Quilt Blocks", available at local public libraries and through library networks. Anyone who wished to help out by
making a block for the quilt picked a color swatch at the December 2017 guild meeting. After the meeting there
were still many swatches left, so you can pick one up at the January meeting, too, or get in touch with co-chairs
Martha Mazeika and Linda Reppucci.
An image of Tula's quilt is below. Note that you are not being asked to exactly replicate any particular block
design; rather, use these blocks as an inspiration for your block. Your block should be pieced and include
squares, rectangles and/or triangles, and should also include 50%-75% of the color you chose for your
swatch. Your block should be 6 1/2" (and will finish at 6" when in the quilt).
All blocks are due at the February 7th guild meeting.
If you would like to see close-ups of some of the blocks Tula Pink used and that you can either copy or use
for inspiration, click on the links below.
And if you have lost your sheet with the raffle quilt square directions (but hopefully not your color swatch!),
the general directions can be found in the link below.
