GREETINGS!!!!.....

Muskogee Quilt Show 2004
Deja Vu?

Yes, it's the Muskogee Guild's quilt show...2004... We visited last year, remember?
(see Newsletter, May, 2003)  The19th Muskogee Area Quilters' Guild Quilt Show at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, Muskogee, Oklahoma.

Well, my good friend, LeAnn Weaver, took some pictures for you this year...and it looks just as good or even better than last year!

LeAnn's Booth
This is LeAnn's booth (she's not in the picture, she's taking it).  The quilt on the left is her Short N Scrappy quilt made with P&B Old Blooms collection.  The center one is her own block-of-the-month quilt called "Pups N' Pails" that she retails on her site, www.justquiltit.com.  The quilt on the right is Darcy Ashton's newest called "Claire's Cats".

(I like the hexagon flower basket quilt)

 


I also like this floral on black.  And the chicken quilt is intriguing!

 


Floral Starburst by Judy Pitts, Chouteau, Okla. and hand-quilted by Cora Yoder (my next door neighbor) .  See details below:

 

 

All that Glitters is Gold   Myrtle Allen's quilt
"All That Glitters is Gold" by Myrtle Allen, Wagoner, Oklahoma.  A very talented lady. 
Here's a closer view:

A special thanks to the Muskogee Area Quilters' Guild!

Site seeing, anyone?

http://www.mccallsquilting.com/artheblk/frpaper/  good article on the many uses of freezer paper for quilting projects

http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/body/interactives/senseschallenge/senses.swf  Interesting test.  Mostly made me mad, but some very interesting trivia to learn.

What's New:

IT'S A MYSTERY!!!

This is fun!  Someone should have told me how fun it was to design in a mystery format before!  

It's called Here, Kitty, Kitty.  Here's the story:  Granny is looking for her beloved cat, named Miss Kitty.  You follow Granny around the neighborhood searching for clues to Miss Kitty's whereabouts.  Each month you are given a "block" clue.  The mystery will be solved in 6 installments.  At the conclusion, you will be given instructions for a "bonus" 7th block (for those who are not "feline" inclined).  

Fabric requirements are given in the first installment.  You can choose to make your quilt "scrappy" if you prefer.  Illustrations will be given for both.  It's on the free block of the month page.  And if you absolutely, positively cannot wait for the mystery to be solved, then you can order the pattern (sight unseen, of course) on the pattern page.

For quilt shops and guilds only, the Here, Kitty, Kitty Mystery pattern in a format for copying, with copyright waiver for up to 100 copies comes in 3-ring binder and page-protected originals suitable for  copying in gray scale. Color PDF documents on CD included for color printing.  Click here for info.

Tag Line of the Month:

      Don't take life too seriously.............. you won't get out alive.

 

May you always have a quilt in the hoop, I try to.   

 

Cya,
