Apparel with a group logo:
Dottie modeled the denim shirt she purchased from a women in Texas that has her business name and

Challenge quilts:
So far, we have 15 members signed up to each do one of the challenge quilts.  Those members who
haven't indicated which of the four designs they want to do should post an email on the Yahoo group
to let us know which they've chosen.  The quilts need to be turned in at the September meeting.
