June Meeting

The gals from Country Cousins up in Concordia gave us a marvelous session on panels this month! There were three parts to the presentation…

First, Peggi Barrett talked about using panels in garments. She showed several kinds of garments, mostly jackets, with some innovative ideas for showcasing panels or even interesting sections of regular yardage. Here, she and Marsha are showing off the Dragonfly top from Diane Erickson:

Next, Marsha Doyenne discussed panels in quilting. Even if the designer thought the panel would be used intact as a quilt, Marsha showed us that it may look even better cut up and combined with additional fabrics:

Finally, they pulled out a big tub of fabric and let us play! Each table got a set of panels, complementary fabric swatches and some trims (like ric rac) and were encouraged to plan a project — garment, quilt or home dec. It was lots of fun to see what each group came up with.

Many thanks to Marsha and Peggi for driving all the way down from Concordia to meet with us!
