We will be discussing fabric choices, thread choices, and will be happy to help you find fabrics to create your quilt from scratch, or we will be happy to help you find coordinating fabrics if you want to work down your stash.   Alternate projects for your blocks will also be discussed.


Your purchase of the design CD is required.  Enjoy a 10% discount on store merchandise during the club meetings.
