PS – remember this meeting is hands-on with an applique supply list so please see below for the supplies that you’ll need to bring.

Thanks everyone!

Project Block: TWO OPTIONS
1. The KISS Level–simple, but a lot of folks have done this:
Three Circles on a Background  “Half Lego block” or “Dot Candy”
+3  mini charms
+5.5″ x 7.5″ background fabric

2. The NO MORE CIRCLES Level–for those who want a small block:
Popsicle Party, a free pattern on the Robert Kaufman website.
A little more involved, but fun for those who have already done application

I have attached the pattern. I would instruct folks not to machine baste.
