Member Spotlight - Emily was spotlit! Next month we will learn about Amy S!

Skill School - Ginia taught everyone how to create nice, sharp 45degree corners on your quilt binding, and then did an awesome lesson on mitered corners for quilt piecing! It was a very clever lesson, making Y seams seem a lot more approachable! Next month Brenda will do a presentation on upcoming fabric releases and trends.
