Improv Patchwork Check-In

Hello my lovely Quilt-A-Long pals! This is Patti and on behalf of myself and Kerrilyn I'm checking in on how our first month's Quilt-A-Long blocks are doing. I've seen some amazing blocks posted on our Facebook and blog pages (and thank you for posting – we love to see your work!)  So…..any questions? Any concerns?  Anybody need a intervention for quilting outside her personal quilty comfort zone? If so – please don't hesitate to post your questions or concerns or hurrahs here – or message me or Kerrilyn on Facebook! I can't wait to see what all you talented folks come up with at the next SFMQG meeting on 06/202015!
