All blocks went together really well and they were done by 3:00. Eddy donated a quilt top, so we will have 8 quilts to send off. Fabric for sashing and backing can still be donated for future quilts. There was a motion made and passed for the club to pay for postage.
Retreat: Penny did an outstanding job at the retreat. Everyone had fun, but Nancy thought the pincushions were “very stressful”! The power went out for a couple of hours one morning so there was no hot water for showers.
Pincushions: Barb gave another pincushion pattern to everyone. The felt balls may be found at the Fabric Patch.
