Three more quilts - one finished, and two just waiting for their binding.
Two of these are collaborative quilts using blocks pieced by a number of members, and one uses blocks donated by Liz Upchurch and pieced by Elizabeth.
We will start on another charity quilt using 'Almost an Echo' blocks which will be collected in November and December meetings. Details of the block pattern and color palette will be sent out by email.
