October 25

Wednesday evening, Pine Tree Quilters Guild AREA 5 Fall Meeting

Hosted by Hancock County Quilters at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Ellsworth, ME

5:00 conversation: 6:00 pot luck dinner followed by a special program.

Please bring:  $3 admission, pot luck dish to share, show & tell, Canning Jar Block for block drawing (optional); click image at left for pattern or a canning jar pattern of your choosing. 

We are asked to make two 12 1/2" blocks one for the drawing and one that will be used by Hancock Quilters for a special project.  Note:  You may hand or machine applique the jar by centering it both horizontally and vertically.  You many even use fusible web to adhere it.  If yolu'd rather make a pieced block, that's okay, too.  The important thing is to make the block 12 1/2" square.
