FOUNDATION PAPER PIECE HOT PADS
To Be Taught by Chris Beadle
Size: Approximately 6 1/2” x 6 1/2”

Fabric scraps for each veggie (for example, orange for pumpkin)
Approximately 3/4 yard fabric for binding*, backing and border
Heat resistant batting such as Insulbright
* Chris’ demo hot pads pictures do not have a binding. She chose to just turn them inside out, but binding was the original pattern suggestion

THREE DUDES QUILT
To Be Taught by Suzanne Shelton
Size: (As shown) 62-1/2” x 62-1/2”
The beauty of 3 Dudes is you can make whatever size quilt you want from 2-1/2” strips.
If you want to use a jelly roll you can make a good size throw or a baby quilt.
If you use half a jelly roll or (20) 2-1/2” strips you can do a table mat or runners.
If you just have 2-1/2” strips that you have cut you can make whatever size.
The height of your strip set determines the size of your blocks.
If you wish to make the whole quilt as shown, you will need:
1 roll 2-1/2" graded strips (Note: Strips must be 44” – 45” long)
1 roll 1-1/2” dark strips (Note: Strips must be 44” – 45” long)
Suggestion: Google “Three Dudes Quilt” for color ideas

Sew-n-Sews - 2022
Many of the Sew 'n Sews projects help support SPARCC (Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center) in Desoto & Charlotte Counties, and each year they have a quilt raffle. Here is this year's beautiful quilt. Raffle tickets will be sold at coffee.
They also accept donations for personal care items for mostly women & children. Items like soap, shampoo, personal hygiene, tooth paste, diapers, etc. If you'd like to donate, please find the tubs in the AC on Tuesdays & Fridays or in the PAV during Tuesday's coffee time.
Surgical Hats for Pediatric Surgical Patients
Golisano Children's Hospital needs surgical caps for their pediatric surgical patients. Sew-N-Sews are asking members to each make one surgical cap this summer, and bring it in the fall to donate to Golisano. Instructions for making the surgical caps can be downloaded by clicking here:
