Monthly Inspirations for 2016 - July

You are in good time to start your next little project using "clues" from our Monthly Inspiration colours, subjects and techniques.

July's clues were:-

  • Red
  • Birds
  • Paper Piecing

To follow along is very simple. Each set of clues could be used for a block, a row, a segment, bags, cushions or whatever else you like. Each month there will be another set and at each meeting, people will bring along what they have made to show us. Hopefully by the next Exhibition we put on, in April 2018, there will be some delightful new pieces based upon the Monthly Inspirations.
