Our Block of the Month started this month at the Sewing Saturday. The Make It Modern and Non-Quilt Item Challenges are due by the October meeting.
Show and Tell items will be posted on Instagram. Pat donated a lap quilt she wants to auction and proceeds to the library. Laura turned in the R for the Guild Banner.
There are more Guild Banner kits. These are due by the morning of the October Sewing Saturday. We will be hosting a bag swap, Rachel explained the rules. Kris donated a quilt top at the last meeting. It is bigger than the St. Jude's quilts, so we will be auctioning it off. Jen volunteered to quilt it. Money for Kris's quilt will be earmarked for charity. Jen would like to have access to batting and backing.
We will be planning a guild trip to Lakeside Quilters Quilt Show October 4th - 6th.
