Farewell blocks are for members who are moving away from our area. Please make nine-patch blocks that complete to 8 inches using 3 inch cut squares, either 5 blue squares and 4 unbleached muslin squares, or 4 blue squares and 5 muslin squares. Please sign your name on one square and heat set using a hot iron.
