Monday, January 20, 2020 Meeting Reminder

Meeting reminder of VMQG’s First meeting of the New Year and New Decade!

Program: The January meeting program will be facilitated by Niki and will feature the reveal and return of the 2019 Round Robin quilt tops to participants.  We will enjoy seeing these tops for the first time along with “the Robins” and hear about the inspiration for their center blocks and colour choices. It is always motivating to see how these monthly challenges are interpreted by participants.
