Blocks Without Borders (an Art & Landscape Society) meets on the Third Thursday of each month at 1 p.m.  Prepare to exchange ideas, along with giving and receiving inspiration.  Don’t forget to bring your Show-N-Tell! We will have a door prize! No RSVP necessary. This meeting usually lasts about an hour.

Note from Judith Swain: This next meeting, please bring your “Water” project challenge quilt so we can explore how they might all go together for hanging. Just a reminder that they should all have a label by show time please. The smaller ones won’t need hanging sleeves – we think they’ll be pinned to a back cloth. 

Also bring any and all show and tell and your group exchange “Fantastic” project if possible. I believe that Aimee has a surprise in store for those who attend and bring something to share……….!

It’s time to think of our next challenge and or class. If have any “Quilting Arts” magazines please bring them to share – they have GREAT ideas.
