Here’s the recap from March’s Meeting.
Once again we had a great turnout for our March meeting – Thank you to Cecile for hosting us at the Sewing Party! (Reminder – The Sewing Party Studio Open House is always the 2nd Saturday of the month – Next one on May 14)
We talked about the Block Lotto – and passed around an interest list. If you weren’t able to make it to the meeting and would like to participate, please let us know. We will have fabric at our April meeting, a block to make – those participating bring a $1 for every block you want to enter. And in May – we will draw for all the blocks and hopefully someone will walk away with a quilt. (photo above is from Block Lotto Gallery and shows what you can do with the blocks!)
Congrats to our March Challenge Winners

Our July Challenge is an 18″x18″ Mini Quilt. It must be modern and it can be anything you want. Please see the Challenge Page for more details. Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful Mini Quilts!
