Misc State Forms
Squares are given out at the State Convention.
Start with the 10" square of fabric that is provided or use your own fabric that is a 10" square. This gives you a 9" square to work with to create your design. You must Leave a 1 inch margin all the way around the edges to allow for the seams. DO NOT make your design on point. (on point is making a diamond with points at the top, bottom and sides instead of keeping it square). Please remember that each square must be pressed several times during the process of making the quilt so please DO NOT use the rubberized iron on decals. They melt and are usually damaged during the pressing process.
If you decide to use different material, make sure it is 10” square and leave the seam allowance of 1 inch all the way around the square. For those of you that paint the square, make sure you use FABRIC PAINT or mix your paint with a FABRIC MEDIUM so it can be washed and is not so stiff. Too Stiff breaks needles!!! DO NOT use scrap booking items or artificial flowers. They can’t be washed. They will dissolve or fade in water. Even if you don’t have a “quilter” in your auxiliary, you can use a SHARPIE (MUST BE A PERMANENT MARKER). If you do this, please remember to keep the 1” all around the square and sign the square and add your Auxiliary # to it. Also, remember that the quilt is designed to be used and that also means to be washed.
The cost of each square is $10.00 and the check should be made out TO ME not the State Auxiliary and sent directly to me with the completed square . If you do not to send the $10, your square will be returned to your Auxiliary.
Bring the squares to me at our Mid-Winter Conference to save postage or mail them by the February 15 (this is the deadline for receiving the blocks - NO EXCEPTIONS). It takes quite a lot of time to put it together and to do the quilting so the sooner you send them the better. Thanks so much for your assistance.
