Fat Quarter drawing for June- White
Happy Spring! Wait that's not right. Happy Summer!
Wait, it was in the 30's last night. Happy Spr-ummer!!! As school closes
down for the year, I get more and more excited for extra sewing time. I
already have projects lined up! Hopefully this summer, you'll have time
to balance the beautiful weather here in Central Oregon with time indoors
sewing. You could even take some hand work and go to the park!
I'm also excited to see our 30th anniversary show on the 10th. Lots of
fun pictures and stories to tell!
for the June 10 Guild Meeting

The new member tea was held on May 22nd at

time of getting to know one another and show and tell. Marilyn gave
out some door prizes. We
appreciate her hosting this event!

Quilt Challenge-Quilts Due July 15
Rosie W. and
Kathleen G. for Sylvia K.
Only six more weeks to finish
quilts for our challenge, Memories of Mt. Bachelor Quilt Guild! They need to be
brought to the July 15th meeting. We
guild members have had so much fun together, in classes, meetings, workshops,
and retreats. Think back over your experiences and try to remember some
FUN thing that you can make into a quilt! If you like deadlines and decide to
start one now, the dimensions for the quilt are to be
a minimum of 36 inches on any side and a maximum of 60 inches on any one
side. Participants can use any type of technique but all work must be
done only by the entrant.
2013 30th Anniversary Mt. Bachelor
Quilt Show in the Park- August 10
Wow! We are getting close to our 30th
Anniversary Quilt Show---just a couple of months away! We’ll get started on our
Anniversary Celebration with the wonderful program planned for our June
We are pretty well set for the
main chairpersons for the show, but please sign up any empty slots on the
clipboard for any area you can help.
Both longtime and NEW members are welcome AND needed to make this our
best show yet!
I will have forms for the SALES
TABLE and QUILT LABELS ready for you at the June meeting. Please remember, you will donate
10% of anything sold at the show to the guild (non-member sales donate
15%). Now is the time to go
through those magazines, fabric, etc. to sell at the Sales Table to make room
Quilt collection will take place the day
before the show, Friday, August 9th at Parks and Rec. We need
many volunteers that day to help with intake of quilts and for organization and
At 7:00 am on quilt show day, we
need every able-bodied person we can get to set up the quilt frames and hang
the quilts. For set up, we need many more people than will fit on
a sign-up sheet! And we need LOTS of husbands (and/or sons) for the
heavier work. Please just show up at the park, and join in the fun!
At 4:00 pm on quilt show day, we
need lots of people to take down the quilts and take down the frames.
This always goes very quickly, and again we need husbands. No need
to stay at the park all day.
Quilt Education Program
Thanks to all the Guild members
who gave presentations to local elementary school students and Girl Scouts this
school year! Thanks to your support of our quilt education program, we
were able to reach over 300 second grade students in schools throughout Bend as
well as a Girl Scout troop and nine at risk girls living in a residential
treatment center. Catherine A., Martha S., Pris B., and Kayla H. deserve
special recognition for bringing quilts to life for these kids.
Unfortunately, we had to turn several classes away due to a lack of
volunteers. With your help, next year we can reach even more kids and
share our knowledge and love of quilting with them.
Food Drive for the June 10 Guild Meeting
For June, we are donating Spaghetti Sauce. Please bring a jar of sauce to the
guild meeting and support the Food Pantry at Nativity Lutheran Church. We use the church hall for Community
Quilting and appreciate having such a nice, large area. The church requests that we help with
their Food Pantry by donating food or money. Thank you for all the support!
Quilts- Next Meeting June 12, 11-3 at Nativity Lutheran Church
Diana L., Bev P., Lora F., or Jean M.
The Guild has received 3 letters of thanks following our recent
distribution of quilts. They are from The Kids Center, Ronald McDonald
House, and the Cascade Youth and Family Center. The letters show how much
the quilts we make are appreciated. Thanks to all of you!
The regular Community Quilts gathering will be on Wednesday, June 12th,
at Nativity Lutheran Church, starting at 11 and ending close to 3.
We don't have a special event planned for June, so you can bring whatever
community quilt project you are already working on, or come prepared to start a
new one using one of our kits or the fabric we have in the bins. Bring
your sewing machine and supplies, as well as your lunch. We'd love to see
Nativity Lutheran Church is located at the corner of SE Brosterhaus and
SE Knott. There are additional directions to the church on the
The June raffle book is Scrap Quilts Fit for a
Queen, or a King, Twin or Lap! by Sally Schneider. The queen of scrappy quilts has written
a book which gives directions for a variety of sizes for every pattern. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. The
new book added to the library this month is More Loose Change, 14 quilts
from Nickels, Dimes and Fat Quarters, by Claudia Plett and Lee Ann
Weaver. Books donated by members
added to the library this month are Seasonal Samplers, Autumn and Winter,
by Debbie Mumm and Nature’s Christmas by Debbie Mumm. There will also be a limited number of
donated books which are free to Guild members. Stop by the library table to check them out. Thank you for your support of the Guild
Outdoor Quilt Show (SOQS) News- July 13
Our exhibit entries for the quilt show are complete and I think we have
a great representation of our viewers’ choice and challenge winners as well as
several very special award winners from national shows. Good news! We will have the quilt frame at our
site for hand quilting demos and visitor interaction.
I want to extend a sincere thank you to all of you who signed up to
volunteer at the show. This
is so important. The quilt show and the many quilt shops may be some of the
attraction that drew you to Central Oregon and supporting the show with time
and treasure reinforces that.
There is still a need for volunteers in many different ways and days. Please visit the website www.sistersoutdoorquiltshow.org
for more volunteer
opportunities found listed under ‘support’ on the home page.
June- This month the Anniversary Program will be
presented. The committee has been working hard. Please invite any past members,

Workshops- Next Workshop September 9
The next scheduled guild workshop will be held on Monday, September 9th
with our guest instructor Joen Wolfrom. Based on the poll we took at the last meeting, “Creating
a Scene with Pizzazz” was the top pick among the members. We will be sharing this workshop with
the Mountain Meadows Guild of Sunriver, which gives each guild 10 seats in the
class. A sign-up sheet will be
passed around at the June and July meetings. If more than 10 people sign up, names will be drawn for the
attendees, and a waiting list will be formed. If you would like to sign up but cannot make the June or
July meetings, please contact Linda Greenough and you will added to the sign-up

Quilts for Oklahoma Tornado Victims: Moore Love
The OKC Modern Quilters are asking for quilts to
donate to the victims of the May 20th F-5 Tornado that devastated Moore,
OK. Here’s the blurb directly from
“We know you want something tangible to go to the
victims of these horrific tornadoes. We have had many offers of completed
quilts, and due to limited man power on our end, we have decided to ask
everyone to send completed quilts to our guild rather than blocks. It
could be a quilt you have waiting for a good home, a new one you want to make
special just for someone in need, it can be modern, traditional, any size, any
colors, made by an individual or a group. You send us your completed
quilts and we will get them to those in need. Quilts will be due to the OKC Modern Quilt Guild by June
30th. If you e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
we will get an address to you.”
