August Block lotto - Corner block

The tutorial is from the blog "From Blank Pages" and is called the Candy Land Corner block.

You will need:    Kona WHITE solid: ~8”x18” or 4”xWOF or scraps. 

Rainbow Bright scraps: 48 1.5” squares (33 prints and 15 solids) 
The picture below is for COLOUR INSPIRATION ONLY.

And a finished block!

Block finishes at 12”. As always, one block = one lotto ticket, so make one, make two, make lots!

August meeting reminder

It's time for the August meeting!

Thursday, August 20th at Scout Hall, 505 Marigold Road. 
Doors open at 6:40 to let us get set up. 

We are presenting the 12 quilts we made to KEYS on Thursday and we hope you can be there. 

We are also having a donation drive for KEYS, similar to what we do in December. They are asking for summer clothes (M/F, teen sizes), shoes, swim suits, toiletries. If you have something you can spare we would appreciate it. 

Because of people being on holiday we need a volunteer secretary and two extra helpers. Please give us a shout if you can help!

Please bring the usual things:
• a mug for tea or coffee,
• your name tag to wear,
• your Modern show and share,
• your block for the block lotto. 
Instructions are HERE.
• if your birthday is this month, please bring cookies or a treat to share,
• MONEY! for FQs, 50/50 draw, membership, workshop, sew-ins, t-shirts
• library books if you have them. 5$/month late fees if you forget!

Last but not least:

• If you are not a member of MQG Victoria there is a 5$ drop in fee.

We hope to see you on Thursday! Bring a friend!

A quick look back:
2013 - so new we only had printed paper signs!
