VI. OTHER BUSINESS
Ugly Challenge-Participants swapped bags of "ugly" fabric and are to bring back a 12.5 inch (unfinished) square block of any design using the ugly fabric along with any other fabrics the maker wants to use. The blocks will be assembled into a charity quilt.
Charity Projects-We will make another quilt for the Camraderie Group. Beth will bring red, white and blue fabrics to the October Sew Day and the November Meeting. Jodi will select a quilt pattern.
Labels for donation quilts- Following a discussion it was decided that OMQG would order labels to be put on donated items made by guild members. There are many sources of labels. One used by Kathryn is Sweetwater. Rene also suggested mini cards from Moo.
The Demo at the October 20th Sew Day is of paper piecing.
The Demo at the November Meeting will be with Maya on how to sew on mirrors and other flat objects.
