FOT Christmas Wreath

IT is that time of year again, yes, if you haven't already begun planning for the Holiday Season, well our guild will be! Pictured below is the planned project to donate to the Orlando Museum of Art's Council of 101 Fundraiser. This will be our 2nd year participating.

The project will kick off at the September 2nd guild meeting by handing out the fabric for this project.  In order to participate you simple pick a mini fabric bundle and make two 4.5 inch blocks from the pieces enclosed. There will be 3  different blocks to make. IF you take a bag, you COMMIT to making 2 blocks and returning them by the October guild meeting. (Some blocks may be used on the back or the carrying bag)

Here are the instructions:
Each block is finished to 4.5 (4 1/2) inches square. You will  be responsible to square your block to size. There are 3 different blocks to make.

14 Red Blocks

34 Green Blocks

32 1/4 green 3/4 white blocks. Here is just one example:

The red and green blocks must be Primarily that color, with any type of modern design you choose.

The 32, green and white blocks blocks MUST be approximately 1/4th green and 3/4th white, they will be the outer and inner ragged edges of the wreath.  So these block must be somewhat ragged or with a triangular edge similar to a quarter square triangle.

Additionally we will look for volunteers to piece, quilt and bind.  These volunteers will need to be available for a quick turn around as the project is due in November.

Please email Debra with any questions or if you would like to volunteer to piece, quilt or bind.
