What a wonderful turn out of quilters!  
So good to see you all and 
your wonderful Show & Tell!

We hope to have inspired you to try a nine patch project this month.  Next month, if you bring in a nine patch project for Show & Tell, 
you could win a special door prize!

and 1/2 yard for binding

Anna Mary, made these wonderful Nine Patch Star
table runners.  Perfect in Holiday fabrics.
