June wrap up

This year our block of the month was run as a whole quilt.  Anne sent out the block instructions every month and members could choose to participate, or not.  Well, my gosh!  Look at all the finished tops!!!  The instructions went out for 16" blocks.  Some of the members shrank that to 12" blocks.  And there was more than one way to set the blocks in to a top.

We also held a fabric challenge which required something for the Kitchen - 20 participants.  And the UFO challenge - 11 gals signed up and 7 completed their UFOs (the other 4, sadly, had to pay a $10 penalty fee).

We don't have formal meetings in July or August, but those who are interested can come out for our Sewing Days - July 13 and August 10 from 9 - 5.  Bring $5 and your lunch.
