To begin, Happy Valentines Day!

We had a great meeting today!  Moya from Patchwork Plus was our shop for the meeting.  Jane started off with a few announcements which included a request for members to join the committee in April, as only two members are continuing on.

Mary O’Conner briefly spoke about Quilts for Crumlin, hoping to reintroduce it as a charity our branch can focus on.  Quilts for Crumlin gives quilts to seriously ill children aged 0-17in hopes to provide comfort to them during a challenging time.  Ms. O’Conner challenges our members to create any sized quilt and show and donate it at our June meeting.

Erin then debuted the Block of the Month Quilt:

It features sashing, diamond cornerstones, and two borders!  Watch our blog in the next week for the directions to complete your Block of the Month quilt!
