      We will play Bingo.
    • We will play Bingo. The price for each game will be quilters' funny money: a piece of fabric, a notion, a pattern, a quilt related decoration, etc. Each game will have a theme and we have 10 games scheduled. The themes are: (1.) Anything blue; (2.) Anything red; (3.) Anything with a stripe; (4.) Any strip of fabric; (5.) Any fat quarter; (6.) Any square of any size; (7.) Any gadget or notion; (8.) Anything green; (9.) Anything black/white; (10.) Anything multicolored.

      By anything, we mean anything that fits the theme - fabric, pattern, notions, gadgets, books, orphan block, etc. It is your interpretation of the theme for each game and what fun for the winner! Shop your stash, a friend's stash or a regular store, but come with some quilters' funny money. The winner of each game takes home the pile. If we can get more than 10 games in, the price will be potluck!
