Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 April 2022


Happy April!  According to the calendar, it is officially springtime now, and it did feel like spring for a couple of weeks...but then April Fools Day came and everything was once again covered in white.  What a prank!  However, we are surrounded by beautiful quilts and fabrics that give us a bright and cheery disposition no matter what it looks like outside - the above samples are just two examples.  I hope you are able to come in and get your "color therapy" too!  Thank you all again for your continued support!


We will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 17th,
as well as Mother's Day, Sunday May 8th.

Block Challenge

We have done challenge blocks with our retreat ladies for years, and now we want to do a challenge with all of you!  Stop in and buy a fat eighth bundle of fabric for $6.  Make a 12" finished block of your choosing.  Bring it back to our store by Friday, April 8th, and enter your name to win all of the blocks to make a quilt top.  The winner will also receive a $25 gift certificate to Deer Country Quilts!  We have two color options for you to choose from.

Please call our store to sign up for classes (406) 677-2730.  You can find more information for each class on our website by clicking on the picture.
