{ Meeting } February 19th :: HEXIES

We are drawing near our first official meeting for the BMQG. On a quick whim we discussed how easy paper piecing really was. Some things are quite overwhelming until they are broken down into steps, and made more clear. This is what we will be doing on the 19th.

We ask that you bring a few things to participate in this session, but if you do not have something please come down as we will have things to share as well.
please see our meeting supply list below.

Please bring to the meeting::
approx 10 fabric scraps about 3.5x3.5
Hand sewing needles
straight pins

We also ask that you bring anything that your working on. If you didn't get to showoff your work at the last meeting feel free to bring it down. We will be having show and tell at every meeting.

Paper pieces will be provided to learn!

Just wait... in no time you will be making quilts with these addicting little suckers.

We will see everyone there!
