Quilt Show Challenge: Mary Johnson had a question about the label on the challenge, Nancy will ask Jean about it and get back to her. (Mary has her challenge done)
Stash Busters Discussion: It was suggested that you only be able to win the stash buster blocks and the raffle basket once a year. Alicia would like to break out the raffle basket as it is a donation to charity. Patsy made a motion that we limit winning the stash buster blocks only once a year. Sandy clarified that a year be November to October. Motion passed. It was also decided to leave the raffle basket alone.
Diane Havens returned the stash buster blocks that she won last month, so we had everyone sign up again and picked another name. Pegi Fleming won the blocks. Diane also sent fabric to pass out, please make a 10 ½ inch unfinished block, pick a color out of a print
