The Nishna Botna Valley Quilt Guild met on May 17, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. at the Walnut Public Library.
Those present were: Betty Morris, Elaine Snedden, Dorine Rasmussen, Shelly Storjohann, Sharon Guffey-Lewis, Roxie Hester, Sally Dea, Kristina Larsen, Charmayne Presley, Shirley Jacobson, ShirleyWingert, Dorothy Eggers, Fran Dixon. It was so good to have Charmayne back with us after her foot injury. We had 2 visitors: Karma Sorensen and Joyce Hansen.
President Betty called the meeting to order. Minutes were read and approved. The treasurer’s report showed we had a balance  as of May 5, 2016 . Two more members paid dues and all dues are paid now. One check  was written to Sally Dea for a roll of batting the Guild ordered from Walmart.
We discussed the name on the checking account being different from the name on the bank statement. Betty Morris made a motion that Shelly Storjohann be authorized to talk to the bank and get our truename Nishna Botna Valley Quilt Guild corrected on the statement and eventually the checks.Charmayne Presley seconded that motion and it carried. The bank will allow us to use the current checks until they are finished;then order new checks with the correct name on them.
Sharon distributed a new roster. A few corrections had to be made, but otherwise up to date.
The members who participated in the sampler quilt showed their pieced tops or their completed quilts.All were very attractive and well done.
Shelly gave a demonstration on the “disappearing nine patch” block. Very interesting and a good way to use up scraps.
Several shared something they had completed since our last meeting. A few more lap robe quilts were completed and given to Roxie. Roxie brought kits that had been assembled at Sew Day. Several took them to work on during the summer.
Dorothy served delicious cream puffs for refreshments and we played CLR with Dorine winning the red,white and blue strips we brought
Next meeting is June 21 st . Shirley J. serves refreshments. We are to bring 3 5inch squares
of red, white and blue fabric. No July birthdays.
