Red/White Challenge and 50 State Challenge

12 07 2015
Hey, thank you all for signing up to be in the Red and White Quilt Challenge or the Fifty States Challenge. I’m not sure I was altogether clear/lucid so let me repeat a couple of things:


Julie Bragg and Karen Neuschafer like the idea of including the Red and White Quilts as a display (like the beautiful miniatures the Twisted Stitchers minigroup had in our last show) in our next quilt show, October 2016. I figure we’ll have revolving deadlines: at the Christmas 2015 Potluck, at the Summer 2016 Potluck, and at the Fall 2016 Quilt Show. You can finish and show and tell your quilt at any or all of those deadlines.

Any kind of red and white quilt, any size, is welcome: no rules or requirements, just your preferences. The big thing is to have several for the show next fall (2016). FIRST DEADLINE IS THE CHRISTMAS POTLUCK IN DECEMBER.


Pick a state, buy a fat quarter from it, and put it into the exchange basket at the Christmas 2015 meeting. In exchange you get a fat quarter from another state. I’m going to write MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM IDAHO on a tag on mine. You can wrap it, tie a bow on it, form it into a crane, or not, as your fancy dictates.

Thank you so much for joining in. If you have any questions or want to sign up, give me a yell.

Quilt of Valor Workshop

28 06 2015
Quilts of Valor Workshop❗️❗️  🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸      ⏰   It’s finally time!
Thursday, July 9, 10:00-4:00pm.  Main Street Community Center, 255 Park Ave, Amherst.
I have received a donation of fabric from the generous folks at The Original Sewing & Quilt Expo ! Now I need your help in putting together some tops for  Quilts of Valor that will be sent off to the Cincinnati VA women’s group that we’ve sent to the past couple of years.  I’m hoping several tops can be made from this donation and added to the quilts from the June workshop with Joanne Hubbard. Ten tops will be needed in all & will go out in September. If you have some time to donate please email me and let me know you’re coming so I can organize and plan better how to use what I received. Sewers and pressers and cutters of fabric will be needed. Bring sewing machines, cord, irons and mats and a happy heart! We’re sure to have a great time as in the past…..it’s been a while!
Thursday, July 9, 10:00-4:00pm.  Main Street Community Center, 255 Park Ave, Amherst. (It’s the old post office bldg) Brown bag lunch or dine downtown…. there’s several choices.
