August 2016 program: highlights of the summer 2016 POE (GSQA educational program), part two

The one-seam, three-dimensional Flying Geese block would be an interesting addition to a child's quilt and would add some complexity to a simple border.  Missouri Star Quilt Company's 8-minute YouTube video shows how to make the block in a manner similar to what was shared in class  

Another three-dimensional project shared at the POE was a fabric origami butterfly.  Cindy Baucum created many of these as pins awarded to GSQA raffle quilt block finalists.  After making 60 of these pins, she was a pro at making one the size of a penny (actually, smaller!)

I forgot to mention chocolate--a basket full from which to choose all day!  We finished the class with a recipe that POE coordinator Paula Mathews shared, for Millionaire Pie from Spend with Pennies  

The purpose of POE is for GSQA members to attend, and then to return to their guild to share class content with all guild members.  It's one way that GSQA meets its mission statement to share the love the quilting through commuity service and education.  So come join us soon, to see what we're all about.  River City is hosting the January 2017 GSQA meeting, right here in Baton Rouge.
