Saturday Chapter News
The Saturday Chapter meeting is a bit different than the other chapters. Each meeting offers many of the components of traditional guild meetings with a program, show and tell, and guild business portion of the meeting. In addition, you can bring machine, hand work...even knitting and sit and sew! Generally the meeting begins at 9AM and finishes by 4PM.
Heather Hancsak is the current Saturday Chapter Coordinator.

"Birds of a Feather Flock Together" Heather has had a wonderful idea to do a Saturday Chapter quilt! Pictured below is the bird block.
Saturday Chapter quilters interested in participating should make no more than 2 blocks measuring 10 inches (finishing 9 1/2 inches) using the pattern in the link below. You can play with the sizing of the bird in the block, making it smaller, putting two in a block if you wish, as long as the block you turn in measures 1o inches.
The background should be white, or white on white. It can be scrappy as long as it is all white.
The bird can be any colors you like and as scrappy or "matchy" as you like!
Scrappy Bird Block Pattern
The blocks should be turned in at the December meeting. Heather will assemble them into a quilt which will be displayed at Mancuso Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival AND at the end of Mancuso, it will be raffled off to one of the participants!!! The only catch is that Heather asks the winner agree to display in the upcoming TQG Quilt Show in August 2018.
