April 2022 Meeting

April 2022 Meeting

Tina shares information about the upcoming May BBB block of the month 
using EPP (English Paper Piecing). 
Tina will provide a demonstration on zoom explaining the process for guild members.

These April BBB  blocks are beautifully done!

A Round Robin quilting project  was introduced to the guild. 
Your quilt will start with you, and can be blocks or medallion style where the design goes around the center piece as it grows.  You pass the quilt on for the next six months to other people in your group to add to it and before you know it you have a quilt.  It is a great way to meet your Ninigret members!
