January 2020 Show & Tell

Photos from our January meeting Show & Tell are below.  Unfortunately the recording on my phone did not happen so there is going to be limited commentary.  These are in the order they were showed.

A bright and flowery jelly roll quilt.

Colorful flowers!

Like the mix of light blues and red!
