Judy reported we gave a 10 Minute Block Quilt at the Habitat Dedication last month. The next house is scheduled for completion in February. It is for an older couple.
Judy also asked if we would be willing to donate a quilt to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort. We voted YES. Bonnie Hunter's site has a link. Lauren will package and ship the quilt for us. The Guild will pay any shipping fees incurred.
Mary Ann reported we are scheduled for a December 1st workshop to work on the Opportunity Quilt.
