Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

November 2015

I think after 4 weekends in a row I am retreated out! My waistline agrees with me! I did make headway on a couple projects though.  I thought I would be able to catch up on store business but the fabric reps are making their after market rounds.  So, I guess I get to order fabric instead! The weather has turned cold and rainy/snowy. It seems like the perfect sewing weather, oh and hunting too.  Loren has filled both his deer and elk tag so it looks like we will get to go to Billings for Thanksgiving. I know this makes my daughter happy. I see she even made a new pinterest board: Thanksgiving Dinner. That's enthusiastic!! She is taking hostessing dinner very seriously.  I think my part will only consist of making a couple pies. I can do that! It has been a long time since I have gotten to spend Thanksgiving with my parents.  Family time is the best time!
                                                  Happy Quilting! Pam

Upcoming Classes

We find hand stitching to be very therapeutic for the soul, even more so with friends! If you think so too, join us on the 2nd Friday of each month and bring whatever hand work you are working on whether it is a wool project or simply have a quilt to bind.  No skill is required.  We can all share ideas and techniques and learn from each other! Class at 10:00.

Binding Tool Star Table Runner
Wednesday March 25
LaRee is super excited about how quick and easy it is to make this runner with the binding tool.  The star pattern is the current issue of the Block magazine from Missouri Star which we carry.  LaRee modified it to make this runner.  The runner is a perfect beginner project and uses 2 1/2" strips. You can make the star quilt if you are in the mood for a larger project. Class at 11:00.
