TOGA exchange blocks

6 1/2, 9 1/2, or 12 1/2" (unfinished) blocks
Our theme this year is buildings--houses, churches, schools, lighthouses, outhouses, barns, birdhouses, beaver lodges (or any other structure that you can think of).
The design and colors are your choice. The blocks can be appliqued, paper pieced, or just plain pieced. I'm not sure how they should be signed. Suggestions?
I've seen some of the blocks and they are really creative.

Please mark your calendars and I'll see you in Bangor.

Hi everyone.
The North Dakota TOGA date has been set for Saturday, August 11, 2018
We have Faye's Henhouse in Mayville, North Dakota reserved for that Saturday and though she has officially retired she still allows us to use the "Event Center" for gatherings.
(9 to 5 or whenever we decide to stop)

She charges 50 dollars for the whole day and if we all chip in a few dollars we can pay for it easily. She does still have a bit of fabric left and it is 50% off so if you do decide to shop I think we can accomodate you.
If you have any questions email me at and put NDTOGA in the message line. I would appreciate a note to let me know you are coming so I can plan ahead.

I hope to see you there this year.
