January Meeting

Our first meeting of the year was a busy one! We saw many beautiful quilts and other projects from our Riley Blake Challenge.

We voted on a new logo, which can be seen in our header above, and on our facebook page.
We kicked off the BOM program with a wonky star block. Find all of our BOM posts here.
