PROJECT PASSPORTS

This year we are challenging our members to complete projects they haven’t, try things they normally wouldn’t, and learn things they don’t know… all of which we will track in our annual passports.

  • UFOs – document unfinished projects in your passport; bring in finished projects for a STAMP
  • Challenges – complete monthly challenges when due, or on your own time, for STAMPS (see full list below)
  • MQG Block Study – make block patterns released by the MQG for yourself or charity; share finished blocks for a STAMP
    • You can make ANY block on the MQG website, but we will highlight a specific block each month as well
    • September->October = X Marks the Spot
  • Classes – take any class and share what you learned at a meeting for a STAMP

STAMPS show all you’ve accomplished, plus you earn chances to win PRIZES!
