Participation in Block Party involves creating the block announced in the month's Newsletter, and bringing it to the next meeting, or lately mailing your blocks to the organizer. A drawing is held for the collection of blocks. If there are enough blocks, there are multiple winners.
We have dozens of block patterns going back to 2013, you might find something inspiring, check out the past block patterns here .

Small Quilt Groups
SCVQA has small quilt groups for members to participate in, from hand stitchers to machine sewers. These groups create their own schedules, choice of quilting projects and their own locations to meet. The Small Groups Coordinators, Cherese and Joyce, can help you get connected with a group welcoming new members.
