Join in the excitement and fun of Patchwork Pooh-LooZa! to be held at Winnie’s Hometown Festival, the third weekend in August.
SHOW & TELL
we are planning for a quilt lovers SHOW & TELL for quilters of all ages and experience levels! Put your quilt on display and share it’s story. All quilts have a story! The design, the quilting, the fabric and best of all…… The Quilter (yes, you!) are all a part of the uniqueness of every quilt.
Even if you are not a quilter you may know one and may have been gifted with the purest form of love….. a quilt! Quilts that have been gifted are are also welcome to join the display. Your story may involve a family heirloom, a special birthday gift or something made by Grandma.
Oh! Let’s not forget about the treasure hunts and rescues! Those forgotten quilts that are found in attics, basements and thrift stores.
Keep an eye open for updates on the Patchwork PoohLooZa! page. Show and Tell info and trade fair registration will be posted soon.
This will be a free to enter event open to all. No judging or competition is involved, just a beautiful showcase of quilts.
For more information contact Tara Anderson Hart or message the Northern Emporium Facebook page.
A scarf for your favourite pooch is simple to make! Directions are for a small to medium sized dog with a collar that is 3/4″ wide.
Cut a square from valentine fabric, 10″ x 10″
For a larger dog adjust the size of your starting square accordingly. For a retriever about 15″ is a good size.
Fold your square in half, right sides together, to make a triangle
With the folded edge away from you cut off the ‘points’ on the right and left side of the fold. I make the length of the cut 1″ so that it will accommodate the 3/4″ collar size.
If you are making this for a larger dog (15″ starter square) adjust your cut line to be approximately 1-3/4-2″ long to accommodate a larger collar.
Open your ‘triangle’ and fold a 1/4″ seam allowance on your freshly cut edges towards the wrong side of the fabric and stitch down.
It should look like this!
Fold back into a triangle, right sides together. Stitch a 1/4″ seam along all raw edges. Leave the folded over edge ‘open’.
Trim off the tip on the bottom edge, be careful to not cut through the stitching. Turn the scarf right side out.
Once you get it turned press it flat. Topstitch a seam 1″ from the folded edge, keeping the ends open. This will create the ‘tube’ that you slide the collar into. Also topstitch the perimeter of the triangle.
Slide your dog’s (or cat’s) collar through the tube pocket and you are done!
