(Learning Color Value in a Quilt)
Continuing Once Upon a Nine Patch
with Sharon Templeton
Once you have decided on a theme for your row, you will make the first row reflecting that theme. Then place the row in some kind of container, like the plastic project boxes. Also, include in the box a small plain book or diary so that the other members of your group can leave notes and messages. If you have some specific fabric you would like the others in your group to use in your row, include that in the box as well.
Next month during our May meeting we will have each group cluster together to pass their box onto the next person on their group list. Your assignment is then to make a row for the person whose box you have received, using their theme. If someone in the group is not going to be attending a meeting, arrangements need to be made for the exchange.
Each month for the ramainder of the year, this exchange will happen.
A few guidelines to make ths a successful as possible.
Do Your Best Work ~ Don't expect perfection from yourself or others.
Keep in contact with your group. If delays need to happen, communicate.
Do NOT attach rows to each other. That will be up to the originator of that theme.
This can be a great way to get to know some new friends, use some creativity and have a wonderful piece in the end that others contributed to.
Some theme suggestions - beach, water, travel, nature, any holiday, sunshine, flowers, trees, hearts, stars, favorite block pattern.
If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to give me a call.
Remember, it's supposed to be FUN!!

This program will begin this month with group assignments made. Each group will consist of 6 members. You can create a group list and submit it or you can sign up and be placed in a group. Please complete the form provided so groups can be organized before the end of the meeting today.
Each person in each group will decide their own theme for their row. The group can decide what size restrictions they want for their group. Height and width of each row. They can certainly be varying heights, you may want to choose a width. My experience is that varied hight lead to more interest in a row quilt.
During the month of May 2015, our program consisted of several of our Guild Members bringing some of their favorite quilts that had a connection to Mother's. Please enjoy.
