Deer Country Quilts May Newsletter

May 2018

I am convinced we are some weird time warp where we are eternally waiting for spring to come yet the months are flying so fast that we can't believe it is already May!  At least my phone weather app does not have any snowflakes anymore in the 10 day forecast!  Maybe we've arrived!  This month is going to fly by also.  May is Quilt Market month!  Market is in Portland and Sarina, Teresa and I are going.  We should have some fun things to update you on by next month.  Check in with our Face Book page and we should have pictures to post while we are there.  May is about Mother's Day, gardening and graduations.  Memorial weekend always kicks off the summer tourist season.  We have been getting in some fun new things in the store also.  There is a lot packed into one month!  Happy Quilting, Pam

Book Case Quilt with Toni
