April Meeting

Such beautiful stars!  Absolutely loving how each BOM block is turning out.  Way to be creative and inspirational, everyone!
March BOM Stars!

Demos

Lizzie showed us how to make a pressing board for cheapsies -- this is a must-do!  And Jenn, January, and Maureen presented different ways to sew curved pieces.  Don't fear the drunkard's path!  It's much easier than you may think!!!

Lizzie's Pressing Board Demo
January's Curved Piecing Demo


Show and Share

I'm always impressed with what people bring for show and share.  They're absolutely gorgeous, ladies!  Keep bringing your projects in as we all love to see what everyone's been working on.
