January Sew-IN Cancelled...

Attention EVERYONE: Due to increment weather and bitter cold temps and wind, our January Sew-IN is Cancelled for Today, January 8, 2015.  Hopefully, we can meet in February, weather permitting.  Please drop off any quilt tops you may have finished and/or those ready for borders, at the Clark County Extension Building in Marshall, IL., at your earliest convenience...Thank YOU!

100 Quilt of Valor Block Challenge of 2015 for East Central IL QOV - Here it is EVERYONE, the 2015 QOV Block Challenge that ANYONE can do, since it's sooo easy - even for Brand-NEW beginners and youth.  This Patriotic Strip/string pieced block uses old phone book pages!  I will include one of Bonnie K. Hunter's tuts on this method, and Please DO NOT trim your finished blocks, leave them for one of our upcoming monthly Sew-INs, so we can get them all the same size...Thanks a bunch!

Here's the direct link to the pattern and technique of Bonnie K. Hunter's of Quiltville, and I'll be posting 'my' progress on our blog in the next couple of days:http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/string-quilting-primer.html

Here's a few pics of another string block I created using old telephone book pages:

Don't forget to post pics on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/EastCentralILQOV/ 
or email your pictures of your blocks and most importantly...Don't forget to have FUN!

Happy New Year!
