Our quilt-y question this month is:

"How many sewing machines do you own and what kind?"

Bring the traveling box and your completed block number two.  You can show off your blocks and then it will be time to swap the boxes, again. Read about the QAL launchfirst block and second block.

Bring your completed Wonky Stars blocks to display.  Also, bring jelly roll strips (2.5 inches x 18+ inches) in this month’s color palette, or black & white. We will have a raffle for a lucky participant to win the blocks or the jelly roll created from last month's color palette.
