Lesley's Tips for Hand-Piecing

1. Mark seam allowances at the corners, especially for inset seams.

2. Don't tie a knot, but pull the thread almost through, leaving about 3/4" of thread.  Take the needle down, then back up in practically the same spot. You should not have to tie a knot in anything using this technique.

3.  Take small running stitches.  Back-stitch about every 3 to four stitches.

>> Round Robin Guidelines <<

Round Robin Groups are made up of four individuals per group.  Each person will supply the center block (up to 12-inch finished size), and the others in the group will each add a border to it, rotating each month.  At the end of four months, the quilt will go back to its original owner to finish the quilt.

I am thrilled to be part of Heber Valley Quilters.  When I attended my first meeting 20 years ago, I had no idea how it would shape my life, and the life of my family.   I have come to love every aspect of  quilting.  I dream about it at night, and can't wait to get up and get quilting!

I'm one of those kids who grew up under grandma's quilt frames, and have always enjoyed sewing and making things, including matching outfits for my son and triplet daughters.  I began quilting when I found some quilt blocks my mother had made, along with a bag with all the pieces cut for a log cabin quilt.  I finished it for my Dad, and was hooked!  I soon had my children involved in quilting with me, and they have each become confident with a sewing machine as well.  I bought a longarm machine, started a quilting business and haven't looked back.

I'm so grateful for the friendships that have been fostered by sharing this common passion, for the things I've learned, and for the opportunities to stretch my creativity, make fun things, share what I've learned, all while being inspired and cheered on by this wild bunch of like-minded folks!  We make stuff!  And we can make a difference!  There is nothing like the feeling of wrapping up in a warm quilt that is more than a quilt - it's a hug, it's love, it's blood, sweat and tears, sometimes literally!  Quilting is art - it's the expression of our lives.  Quilting is such a happy passion, it's therapy.  We've chased our dreams together over the years, and I can't wait to see us soar to new heights this year and in the years to come.
