BSQG members were asked to name their favorite quilting related web site. Following are links to those sites mentioned plus additional links to quilting sites that may be of interest. If you are a BSQG member and would like your favorite link added, please send an email to bsqguild @ gmail.com (remove the spaces before and after the @).

At the November 12, 2015 meeting, Carol Hicks and Marsha Randles had prepared a handout with references for their presentation "All Things 60 Degrees and Hexagons". In the event you were unable to attend (or have misplaced that handout), it can be found here. Since scanning the document erased all links, and since many no longer seem to be directing to the proper site, I will provide corrected links below for your convenience (please note I cannot edit PDFs provided by others so I cannot correct the handout):
