President Lori Jarmin started the meeting by introducing the winner 
of our 2014 Raffle Quilt, Marsha Maharry from Rexburg.

She then presented a $4000 check to Pam Beus for the
Meals on Wheels program in Blackfoot. The money was earned
from selling tickets on the raffle quilt.

Lori reminded the board members that a meeting would be held on 
October the 2nd at Connie Tabor's house at 10:00 a.m.
 to plan the calendar for next year.

Madge Lindsay presented the block of the month "Colorado".

Madge Lindsay introduced her daughter from Rexburg, Lori Robertson. She grew up in Blackfoot and learned to sew in the 4-H program.  She has been using Leaders and Enders for her sewing projects with great success.  It is a technique used  by quilter Bonnie K. Hunter in her book "Adventures with Leaders and Enders".

Lori says, "I can't throw anything away" and usually ends up with scraps from everyone.  She does say that she doesn't keep anything less than an inch.

She showed many examples of her different quilts:

A thank you to Joyce Brower for organizing the raffle quilt sales 
and scheduling the members to work at the fair.
