Monday’s Meeting: Freezer Paper Scottie Dog

Hopefully the only freezing thing at today’s meeting will be the freezer paper! We’ll be doing freezer paper piecing, using a Scottie Dog block. (If you haven’t had the email with the template, you’ll also find it on Marion’s website here.)

Block of the Month: Cat

It was suggested we start doing a block of the month to (1) introduce beginners to new blocks and help build up quilting skills, and (2) make group quilts to sell for funds/raffle/donate. Donations of completed blocks appreciated.

We’ve all got our favourite blocks, so anyone who wants to suggest one to feature, please do.  (Ideally draw up an instructions sheet and templates too…!)

This one’s from Marion, so unsurprisingly it’s a cat.

Oops, this kitty seems to have lost a bit of his one ear in a fight...
