1.  August Book Swap: 

Bring a quilt or sewing related book to swap (published in the last 10 years).

2.  Block-of-the-Month:

The block this month is the Granny Square block.  Bring your completed block(s) for a chance to win them all!   
  • Block - Granny Square
  • Color - Navy & Coral On A White Background
  • Due Date - At August Meeting

Tutorials for the block can be found at Blue Elephant Stitches Tutorial and I'm A Ginger Monkey Strip Piecing Tutorial.

3.  Meeting Topic:

This month Courtney HERE will be covering Foundation Paper Piecing.  FPP is a great skill to have, as it gives you the ability to make very complicated blocks with near perfect results.  You can see a traditional style block  HERE and a more complicated block HERE.  For those interested, we will have a future potholder swap with paper pieced blocks.  There will be some printouts available or you are welcome to find or create your own pattern. 

Hope to see you next week!
