QOV: Gloria sent out 8 finished quilts last month that went to a VA hospital in LA. Roylene said they will be accepting 12” blocks again this year at the fair for display. They will later be donated to QOV. A discussion followed with the following suggestions. 1. Could we have a workday earlier in the year to give more time to finish and not be so close to the holidays. 2. Members could do the whole process themselves. 3. We could collect blocks and have the chairperson distribute a set to individual members to put together during the year instead of waiting until Oct. To be continued.
