Creekside Quilting Newsletter 12/22/2020

***We will be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day***

  The Habitat for Humanity Strong Women Build house for 2020 dedication for Shirley was last Wednesday, and it was a really nice dedication and what a wonderful gift Creekside Quilting was a part of.  Creekside Quilting not only participated in the donation for all fabric to make this wonderful quilt for Shirley, the new owner, but we also were able to participate in the ground breaking ceremony and the building of this house.  Chris Hensley came to me early last year and asked if we would like to be a part of this house and I immediately said yes.  It has been a wonderful experience for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing project!  Good luck to Shirley in her new home!



What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

  Join us for My Favorite Color is Moda BOM starting Saturday, February 6th at 10:30 am and meeting every month through November!  This group will meet and discuss the blocks of the month, go through tips and tricks to the patterns and of course show and tell!  Karen T. and Julia will be leading this group and sewing right along with everyone!

There are 31 blocks and they are all traditionally pieced. The block sizes vary from 9" to 36" which results in a nice sized quilt at 81"x99" We  piece blocks from February to November, which is nice because you can recover from Christmas before starting and it ends before next Christmas.
We have FOUR different color options! There is: 
  Coastal Cool reminds me of seaglass and tranquil white sand beaches. The colours are beiges and blues with a gorgeous periwinkle. 
  Primrose Garden is pinks and greens and yellow! Definitely a garden.
  Tropical Getaway is a riot of colour. Purple, pink, green, blue. Even a coral-orange. 
  Cookie Tin is Christmas, but not just green and red. There is a hint of green blue that really makes this colorway pop. I think Cookie Tin may be my favourite. 
If you want to participate using your own stash, you're welcome to do that as well.

The cost for the pattern is $12. The cost for the color wave kit of your choice is $15 a month and it includes meeting together in person for tips and tricks and the fabric kit of your choice for that month. We will meet either in person or on Zoom on the first Saturday of the month. This is the best part! You get to show off what you've put together and ooh and ahh over everyone else's work as well. Our first meeting will be February 6, 2021 at 10:30 am.
