Fabulous First-Timers #10

Our Fabulous First-Timers round robins are traditional 12” block round robins that a new member must successfully complete to prove her trustworthiness in handling, stitching and mailing along others’ blocks.  The FFT’ers are usually experienced stitchers; they just first-timers completing their initial CQI round robin.

In FFT#10, the stitchers were Colleen A, Aida C, Jody, Kathi E , and Alice.
