Barn Quilt: The Big Reveal
Reminder for NOVEMBER - Finish up those barn quilts! Members are excited to see the finished blocks.
All members are asked to bring in their barn quilts to be displayed. This will surely be exciting to see all of the varied patterns and colors chosen for this group project!
We will have 1 more month to finish up and what a beautiful show it will be in November.
