What colors do you sew with the most?
New Years Resolution Challenge
The New Years Resolution Challenge has officially closed. More information about the challenge can be found here. The prizes are two FQ bundle prizes that have been graciously donated by Dabble & Stitch so be sure to enter!
Rachel demonstrated different zipper installation techniques. Which leads us to a zippered pouch swap! This will be a secret swap so you will not know who you will be receiving from until the reveal at the May meeting. You will only be able to receive your swap pouch if you have your pouch for your partner. Be sure to post a mosaic on Instagram and use #cbusmqswap. More information can be found here.
Be sure to get your dues of $10 to Jennie H. You have a chance to win a March Cotton+Steel Stash Builder Box at the April meeting! You must be present at the April Meeting to be entered into the drawing.
The queen bee for March was Donna. She chose a paper pieced string star. Can’t wait to see then all together.
The queen bee for April is Cynthia. Cynthia chose a wonky economy block. Details for the block can be found here.
For the block raffle this month we made the Scrappy Majestic Mountain Block from Bonnie Hunter. The modern spin on this block looks fantastic. Congrats to Ellen for being our lucky winner.
Beads of Courage
Thanks to Ellen and Chris for donating their bags to our charity initiative for 2017 benefiting Beads of Courage. We’ve already donated 50 bags to Nationwide Children’s Hospital with more to be donated soon. More information about our charity initiatives can be found here.
For March we swapped the Patone color of the year Greenery. So much pretty fabric!
