Two charity quilts were shown and members were excited about contributing to the quilts. Great job everyone!

Bonnie met with JFCS and they would love some small mini quilts to distribute this winter to their clients, they have 92. Bonnie suggested the Guild pull out any orphan blocks and make a 12 X 12 inch mini quilt for donation, she would also like these at the next meeting. She already made 13 blocks that she donated to them.

There were additional quilt kits for Project Linus available this meeting and those kits were picked up and Charity Committee leaders are requesting those also be completed by the next meeting in time for December distribution.
