Here’s how it works: We provide some/all of the fabric (quilt cotton quality) and you pay $1 for each block’s worth of fabric. You make the block and bring it to the next meeting, then names will be drawn to see who gets all the blocks!
Big Thank YOU! to our President, Janet, for pulling the directions together and making the sample blocks.
Here are the fabric choice guide lines and directions for making the blocks.
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!)
