April Meeting Recap

We had our meeting on April 12 at Pennington Quilt Works. We had a lot of announcements about upcoming sewcials, retreats, classes, and shows. It's going to be a busy year.

Lori S. got impatient and made a whole small quilt from her QAL blocks so far. Great job!

Demo: After the break, Jessica L. gave a demo on quilting possibilities for the churn dash blocks. She suggested drawing on paper copies of the blocks to work out the quilting patterns. The challenge for next month will be to bring in the quilted churn dash minis.
