President’s report:
Barb and Cassandra did the judging for the 4-H quilt entries at The Ohio State Fair. The sewing pouches
that were made for and given to the 4-H participants were a hit! They really liked and appreciated the
little gifts.
A few members had a nice field trip to see the Layered and Stitched exhibit at the Athens Dairy Barn Art
Center. The exhibit runs through 9/4 and plans are in the works for another guild trip on 8/28. Let Susan
know if you are interested in joining us.

Community Challenge Quilt. Erica Olivares-Vincent is heading up the committee for this quilt. Members
submitted design ideas and voting concluded on 8/11. Erica will work with the winning designer and
quilt math goddess (Lissa) to finalize the pattern. The winning design will be announced the week of
8/22. And members will be able to sign up to participate in making the blocks for the quilt. Kits will be
available at the 9/8 meeting. We’d like to have the top done by end of October so it can be quilted and
bound and ready to submit in early December. We will make two quilts. One for the 2023 QuiltCon entry
and the other for our 2023 raffle quilt. We’ll wait until early 2023 to make the raffle quilt.
