Block of the Month
Melissa was the winner of the Flower block of the month. Congratulations Melissa!

Cindy and Hollie suggested that we do a block exchange. They showed a few quilts that they thought might good for this. The guild members chose the Road to Oklahoma quilt. Cindy will make up instructions to give out next month and they will plan on it lasting for three months.

The Road to Oklahoma Quilt

White River is looking for people to help tie quilts on April 16th from 9:30-4:00. Contact Cindy if you can help.

This year we will be putting together a committee to be in charge of Snow Goose. Anyone interested let Ann know.

Next Month Linda B. will be doing an applique demonstration for our program. Hope to see everyone there!
