President’s Challenge

As President of the Silver Threads Quilt Guild and in light of the fact this February is President’s birthday month, I’m declaring February as Log Cabin Block month. You can read about the history of the log cabin by going to this link http://www.womenfolk.com/quilt_pattern_history/logcabin.htm.

I will be introducing a President’s challenge block of the month at the meeting on February 14th and thought you might want to read up on the log cabin block (hint). Enjoy!

In retrospect, I probably should have opted for someone who actually looked excited about the work she’d achieved.
