Quilt meetings continued monthly at Judy Cloninger's home. At the meeting on September 18, 1993, team captains volunteered to be in charge of the four appliquéd quilt corners with initials of each of UHCL's four schools. Members signed up to work under these four captains. Jan Just demonstrated the freezer paper method of appliqué while Judy Cloninger introduced the cardboard method.
On October 2, 1993, quilters learned to do a superfine stem with two leaves. Each team captain received a packet containing their material and fabric to begin work on the school initials.
Throughout October and November, articles about the quilt project began appearing in the various University publications including the Clear Lake Citizen, UHCLidian, and the Forte. A campus-wide email went out to faculty and staff calling for a "few good fingers" to volunteer. Another ad was placed in the UHCLidian, the student newspaper.
