OLD BUSINESS:  

Make a Difference Day: Lynda asked us to continue to bring in 12 ½” QOV blocks.  They made 7 tops that were on display tonight.  Great job ladies!  Nine quilters were present and they had a great time.  All blocks went together really well and they were done by 3:00.  Eddy donated a quilt top, so we will have 8 quilts to send off.  Fabric for sashing and backing can still be donated for future quilts.  There was a motion made and passed for the club to pay for postage.

Retreat:  Penny did an outstanding job at the retreat.  Everyone had fun, but Nancy thought the pincushions were “very stressful”!  The power went out for a couple of hours one morning so there was no hot water for showers.

 

NEW BUSINESS:

Pincushions:  Barb gave another pincushion pattern to everyone.  The felt balls may be found at the Fabric Patch.

Extra Rulers:  Extra rulers from the retreat were for sale for $13.

Postcard:  Barb shared a postcard for a book for sale about quilts made featuring American troops.  See Barb if interested.

Retreat:  Cougar cabin is in charge of the next 2 retreats.

Kindergarten class:  Penny’s brother’s class is making quilts.  Anyone interested in donating a yard of fabric, bring it to Eddy.  Anyone wanting to help with the project, see Penny.
