ModQImprov Canada - October Edition

It's finally here! My turn to be Queen B!

The ladies from this on-line bee have been asking for a while for some direction on my block. I played it coy and kept saying they'd have to wait until October. Here's the inside scoop.

Okay, everyone! Get stitchin'! ☺
I can hardly wait to see your creations!
