Annual Picnic - July 12
12 noon - 3pm at the Charlevoix Library

Theme: "Baskets Galore!"

2018 July Picnic Committee, Tresa Keys, Linda Fry, Lois Furness



Please read these instructions thoroughly and make sure you have plenty of time to make a basket block and plan a basket for lunch.

1-- We are inviting The Thumb Quilting Guild to join us. They hosted us for a luncheon (in Bad Axe) when were took our first bus trip. Their guild is planning a trip to northern Michigan this summer, and they will be in our area on Thursday, July 12th. We're hosting a lunch for them -- picnic style!

2---The date is July 12th at the Charlevoix Library; 12 noon to 3:00 p.m.

3---Each member attending will make a BASKET lunch for two, decorate, and fill with enough goodies for two. (Sort of like what we did for the box lunches a few years back at Lavender Hill Farm.

4---We will hold a Basket Block Lottery. Here's how:

Everyone will make a 12” (12-1/2" unfinished) BASKET block pieced or appliqued or combination. Use crème or off-white for background and batiks for baskets. The blocks will be collected and dispersed by lottery. The lotto is open to our guests, too. The block can be just a basket or it can be filled with appliqued things you might put in a basket e.g. spools, quilt tools, flowers, veggies, fruit, eggs, etc. You get the idea, use your imagination!

5---Show and Tell will feature BASKET quilts, along with others. If you have a BASKET quilt, please bring it!
