NHMQG - Our Favorite Book/Pattern

Thank you for making the journey up to Quilted Threads for our last meeting.  Once again it was great to see people in public, in person, and get to socialize.  Every meeting I walk away lighter with so much energy and excitement about quilting.  

Our favorite list from April Programming.

Our next meeting will be the scrap exchange!  Please bring any scraps you are willing to part with cut into 2.5 inch strips. The strips can be the width of fabric or at least 21 inches long. We will work on color theory as we curate enough strips to make the pattern linked below.  New to quilting and don't have many scraps, don't worry we have plenty of fabric from the yard sale.  Not new to quilting and want to purge, bring modern fabric you want to get rid of.  **All extra strips will be made into charity packs **
