December 1, 2014: Holiday Social. A "Let it Snow Winter Social Block Exchange" will be featured. Participation is completely optional, but it will be a lot of fun! To participate simply create a 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" square quilt block to exchange at the social. The theme is "Let it Snow" and the block must contain blue and/or white so that there will be a continuity among the blocks. You may make as many squares as you would like to exchange. It may be pieced, appliqued, or foundation pieced. For more information, please contact Beth Tong.
