We assign 6 blocks a month to work on. Most of us aren't caught up but it gives us a plan and a goal to work on.
Karen was unhappy with the colors of the blocks she had made so we put them up on the design wall so we could all look at them.
She is using batiks with a light yellow/tan background. None of us were sure what she thought the problem was because we all love each block. She did decide to expand her color palette to include some gold and purple. Also some deeper pinks.
Maetha read the first chapter of Jennifer Chaverini's new book - The Quilter's Kitchen. It is available here. I have it pre-ordered from Amazon and can't wait until it come out next month. We all know that the characters Jennifer writes about are fictional but she makes them see so real that we talk about them like they are real people we know. After reading the chapter, the women spent quite a while discussing the characters.
