August Blocks Meeting - by Jane K

This should have been an in-house meeting for members only, but as August is generally a quiet month, people from the waiting list were invited to join us to see what a members evening was like. It was nice to meet them all and hopefully they enjoyed it, as did the rest of us.

We started off with all the notices read by Julia, mainly telling us all the arrangements for our Quilt Show in October. She also showed us the lovely completed quilt, made from our block challenge, which will be raffled for our chosen charity at the show.

We then learnt how to do four blocks, demonstrated by members, they were Snowball 9 patch, Churn dash, Friendship star and Chevron, with a welcome break for tea and coffee. The evening finished with show and tell. There was lots of inspiration for us all to get busy sewing.
