Hello Quilters,
Another month gone and it's almost time for our meeting again!!! WOW how time flies when we are busy quilting!!
Joey Snow will be giving a demo at the Aug 4th meeting. We will be sending out supply info to you shortly.
The fat quarter drawing for August will be bright colored Juvenile/children's prints.
Check out the blog for the link to the BOM if you did not receive it in an email. I am assuming everyone did get it as we did not get any emails back. Those who do not have email were sent a copy in the mail.
The board has a fun challenge project for you to do at home. We will announce it at our next meeting. 
See you all in August.
Patsy VP
