Bring ONE 2 ½ inch black square for the middle (Home Base).  Bring sewing machine and necessary materials.  If you would like to finish and quilt your bingo card, bring a square of 15 inches of backing and batting.  If desired, bring fabric for binding as well.  Bingo cards can be completed (quilted and bound) at your convenience.
