Reminder - AGM Challenge

If anyone is attending is the IPS National AGM on the 17th October don't forget about the AGM Challenge.
The challenge for this year is to make a HOUSE block. This block must be quilted and measure 12 1/2", not smaller. You have to finish the edges of the block with a narrow zig-zag stitch all around the block.
The HOUSE blocks will be assembled by the Western Branch to create a quilt which will be raffled for a charity looking after the homeless in Galway.
Also, the winner of the challenge receives the James Lawlor trophy for the year.
