Our July Sew Day Saturday July 22nd, 10am-3pm at the at Wonderfil Threaducation Centre Bay 4, 2915 19th St. NE.   This month's focus is Libs Elliott's Rebel quilt - if you have a Rebel quilt you're working on or would like to work on the quilt, make sure you bring the pattern and materials and experienced members will help you with it.  Alternatively, bring anything you'd like to work on.

You'll need to purchase a copy of the pattern if you want to join in - you can do that on her website. She even includes the modifications if you want to make a mini instead of a full quilt.  There is also an option to purchase it at a discounted rate when coupling it with her "Just Like Heaven" quilt pattern.  On top of that she's even holding a pattern sale - get 15% off patterns with the code NOBUMMERSUMMER until July 17th.  Share your planning, ideas, progress with #calmqgrebelquilt
