Kona color of the year = Crush
Take a bag home tonight
Make a 12 inch finished sized block (12 ½ square working size)
Use your own low volume fabrics to supplement
“Low volume fabrics are commonly shades of white, beige, gray and pale pastels with low-contrast prints. Many have graphic designs such as text, dots, florals and novelty prints. The distinction of low volume fabrics is that the overall color and design are neutral enough to be considered a background fabric.”
Due back next meeting!
Also please bring back the ziploc bags and the block reference card
If you mess up; it’s ok! Bring it in anyways
If you missed out, or want an extra charity block, email Susie Boots!
