#quiltsforpulse

The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild began the effort to collect quilts for loved ones affected by this recent tragedy. Many individuals and quilt guilds have contributed time, talents and amazing quilts. Our guild hosted a sew in to make blocks and tops, and the tireless ladies from our community quilts committee have finished several to send to Orlando as pictured below.

You can read more about this amazing endeavor and see the quilts others have made here.

By Law revisions

As discussed at our last meeting we're ready to make a few changes to our existing By Laws. Mostly this involves rearranging the officer positions a bit to better reflect those duties.

Please take a moment to review the edits here. New additions are highlighted, text to be removed is crossed out. We'll be voting on these changes first thing at our June meeting.
