President’s Letter for June

Dear Friends,

Our June meeting will take place at Delaware Township Center.   As I mentioned at our May meeting, Cornerstone Lutheran will be having Vacation Bible Camp – so unless you want to volunteer at their event, please come to Delaware Township Center.

I’m excited about our program for the meeting and I also signed up for the Workshop on Tuesday.  Maybe I’ll get some ideas for the July challenge…

Did you get a crayon?  I got metallic gold and I did find some fabric but still read more

Quilt Challenge 2024

CHALLENGE RULES
Black & white project – anything from a potholder to a quilt top.  Use your imagination!

  1. You will choose a crayon. Use the one you’ve chosen even if you don’t like the color!  That’s the challenge.
  2. Only one other fabric besides the black & white. The fabric with your crayon color may have other colors but should be predominantly the color of your crayon!
  3. Pin your crayon in the bag to your project when you bring it back for the reveal in July!
