The January workshop will be lead by Linda Jones using a stack & whack method to make a “present” quilt.  Participants will need 10 fat quarters (or pieces measuring at least 12″ X 18″) for each of 3 colorways; that is a total of 30 fat quarters or pieces of fabric! Please bring your standard workshop supplies. Workshop begins at 9:30 a.m.
The January program will be the use of a Lemoyne star ruler by Juanita Christian.
Signature Club participants will be making 8 1/2″ blocks from Kona Snow fabric. Sew 5″ squares diagonally(as in a snowball block) on each of 2 opposing corners only.  In the middle section of the block, write your name, city you are from, Gala Quilt Guild, 2019.  Make enough for everyone participating. These are due in February!  See Rebecca Chester for more info.
