November 2017 Moda Club Reminder

Our last Moda Club for 2017,
will meet this Wednesday at 1p.m.

For the past few years, we have ended the year with block kits for a group quilt.  We will be passing out block kits for the year 2018 at this Moda Club meeting.  We will also be drawing the lucky winner of the Friendship Star Quilt for this past year.   I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the group quilts we have made.
