    1. I will give you several options throughout the month, and you can choose which one you'd like to make. If you have your own idea, you can make that block as well. We're easy in this group! So happy to have you as a member, Jo!

  2. Just found this great book club! Marvelous idea. I have read several of the previous books, but will have to find and read the others. Will try to locate this current one at my small town library, but if not there, I will definitely buy it. I love to both quilt and read (especially love novels relating to quilting), so this is perfect. Since I have come so late to the party, I hope you plan to continue into 2014?

    1. Yes, I'm planning to continue into 2014! So happy to have you on board, Nancy!

  3. I hope so too Nancy. This is my 1st month

  4. With the Cotton Boll quilt block, does it matter what size we make it. You said you did yours in a 12" & the pattern says it's an 8"

  5. Hi Susan.
    Just letting you know that our small country town of Lancefield, population 1200. Had their local town show.
    I have listed your book club with "State Fair" on my blog.
    I know that your fairs seem much bigger but this is what we do.
    As well as lots of photos of our show. There are also photos of our local animals thanks to the local zoo.
    Hope you can get over to have a look

  6. Just finished the ok.
    Wow. What a twist. Not what I was expecting.
    I have finished 5 blocks now to move on to some more....
    Very good. Now onto the next one.


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
