It was great to see you all at our April meeting - many thanks to Rebecca for hosting us at her lovely home. We know many of you made out well at the fabric swap and we can't wait to see what you do with your new scraps and fat quarters! We got a great preview of our quilt show (Gather Here, THIS WEEKEND) since submissions were due. So here's a sneak peek if you missed the meeting!
Come see them all in person this weekend as part of Cambridge Open Studios. If you can't make it, we'll see you all at the end of the month back at Gather Here. Get quilting!
