At our March meeting we handed in our Charity 9-patch "I Spy" blocks... They were sorted into groups of 6. Members took them home with coordinating fabric to make quilt tops.
Then we swapped our Japanese + and X blocks
|For our Discussion/Brainstorming, Jill brought in some beautiful hand dyed fabric from Uganda that she bought at the AQS quilt show in Lancaster. She wanted ideas for what she could do with it.|
