KTAA Quilt Group 28/Oct/15

DSC01033The first monthly meeting report.

Oct 28th 2015

Today, the quilt group became bilingual (English +Arabic) group as we would like more Arabic speaking ladies to join us to increase awareness about quilting and quilt group.


Our librarian Ms. Hayfa Al-Mughni brought a folder full of interesting books which anyone can borrow against a returnable deposit. If you have a picture and an idea but don’t know which quilt book to refer to she will guide you to the right book. Show&Tell

It was an amazing show and tell done by our quilters

Summer challenge

“Sea and Sand of Kuwait”, to summarize, you can use any technique to make a quilt; it should not be smaller than 22″x 33″ or larger than 33″X 48″. Judging will be carried out in quilt group, December 9th meeting

Sampler Blocks

This year we will demonstrate different techniques by doing blocks of a sampler. This is a 20 block quilt which we will try and complete in time for the exhibition.

Journal quilts:

This year we will also be doing journal quilts, This will be another experience of moving out of our comfort zones and learning new techniques. If you are interested please sign up as Shyamala Rao will guide us to make these quilts. This will be another category in our annual exhibition.
