I enter my sewing area with good intentions of spring cleaning and look around at what I see and what I know is there but I can’t see. I think of the woman I read about on Facebook who died with thousands of bolts of fabric and her family opened a storefront to sell it all. I may not be quite that bad, but I sure have a lot. Probably several lifetime’s worth. Okay, I’ll sort and donate some fabric out. So I start. Let’s see, maybe I don’t need this fat quarter, this quarter yard…….. But then I pick up a fabric and think I could use that in this project and before I know it, I have deviated from getting rid of fabric to rearranging it in piles for use in yet another project. Then I come across a kit I had forgotten about and I start pulling fabric for it. Before I know it, sorting and getting rid of fabric has gone by the wayside and I am happily fondling the fabric into new piles. I know this never happens to you. Well, I had good intentions.
I hope you all had a chance to see our Opportunity Quilt “Sensational Stars from the Prairie”. It is really sensational. The ladies who met every week for over a year to design this outdid themselves. Thanks to Sandy Piatak, Julie Baird, Beth Grossman, Jill Stuck and Sharon Thomsen for their creativity.
Our new website is getting lots of attention. Queries are coming in all the time that we are answering. And we have guilds visiting us with their Opportunity Quilts in May, June, August, September so bring your address labels and money to buy their tickets.
Things are starting to gear up for the quilt show next March. Committees need help so consider jumping in when something sounds interesting. The Guild Challenge with the paint chips is a fun way to start. You can get more info on this at the meetings or in this newsletter.
I want to wish all of you a very Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews—make lots of memories! Travel safely to wherever you may be headed. See you at Guild!!!!!
