March 2017 Meeting Recap

We had a lovely meeting in March!

Our meeting started off with some MQG announcements which can be found here.

The First Quarter Bee Block Swap blocks were exchanged. Look at those beautiful blocks!


Members shared finished quilts and tops made for charity. A couple of the quilts shown here were made at the February Open Sew!

At the February Open Sew, members participated in a Jelly Roll Race! Also, check out how fast Amy can sew here and here! ūüėČ
