III. Guild Block of the Month
We are going to start having Block of the Month beginning with the March meeting. A block is announced with general guidelines. Participants put their block or blocks in a drawing. You get as many chances to win as the number of blocks you bring to the meeting. Winner takes all blocks. The first Block of the Month is a 6 inch unfinished cross block on a white back ground. Information and instructions are already posted on the OMQG website. These are to be brought to the March Meeting.
