Quilt Show Ann Hawkins

Flo Meredith

Hats off to the Quilt Show Committee and the numerous volunteers who worked together to present a wonderful show! The layout and setting up went well, the quilts were beautiful and showed the multi-faceted talents of our membership, the vendors seemed ‘just right’ and Linda Hunter ‘s presentations were just the perfect addition to the show.

Those who were present at the drawing for the raffle quilt will remember that there was some question of whether we had reached the right person (hard to decipher if the phone number ended in 0303 or 0323). The good news is that we have a winner who is delighted - look for details from Joan Danaher, Keeper of the Quilt.

Please remember that June is the annual picnic – bring a dish to pass, your table setting and cold drink if you prefer that to tea and coffee. We will also hold a guild-wide garage sale that day – not sure you’ll ever use that pattern? Are you ready to part with a particular fabric/template/book/gizmo of uncertain usage? Bring it on – you might just find a buyer!
See you all in June,

Meeting Etiquette
To further the enjoyment of everyone during Business Meetings and Programs, Lectures and Trunk Shows, please turn all cell phones OFF or set to VIBRATE. If you need to take a call please leave the meeting area for the duration of the conversation.

Also, please be considerate of others who wish to listen during the meeting by keeping personal conversations to a minimum.

Some of our members are sensitive to strong fragrances and would appreciate it if colognes would be foregone on meeting days.

Thank you to all who have prayed for Tim's surgery and sent good wishes for us. He went thru surgery fine and is glad to have it behind him. They took a bone graft from his hip and put it into the space between the two knuckles on the left hand ring finger. Dr. had been hoping that it would be able to be left in a bent position, but this was not able to happen. He will have a straight ring finger.

I promise now that I will get those darned By Laws done!

Thanks, Sally

THANKS TO THE QUILT SHOW VOLUNTEERS My list of thanks to everyone is long! We received so many compliments on the friendly reception that visitors to our quilt show received and so much more.  It is such a pleasure to work with each and every one of you - your willingness to step up and get things done throughout the show is what makes the show a success.  There were so many times that guild members would come and ask if there was anything they could help with or just see a job that was getting done and pitch in to help.  Linda Hunter noted that this was a guild that certainly worked well with each other and enjoyed her time with us appraising the quilts and giving us the lectures.  The director and staff of the Phelps Community Center are looking forward to seeing the Lake to Lake Quilt Guild again too!  Thanks, thanks, thanks to everyone!!


If you missed Linda Hunter's lecture on Charm Squares - never fear - Flo Meredith will have extra copies of the handout for us at the Guild Meeting.  (Flo thinks of everything! A very heartfelt thank you to her - we could not have done everything without you!)

SET-UP and TEAR DOWN: I want to thank everyone including my co chair Dawn Dennis for the outstanding cohesiveness and "Can Do" attitude when we set up the racks, the quilts, and the tear down. Things went really smoothly and you worked so hard. I know we all felt it the next day! The show was awesome. Keep up the good work.  Sally Acomb


QUILT ANGELS: Thank you to the Quilt Angels for your wonderful work. You were simply excellent in greeting and talking to all of our attendees and helping all over the building!  Bobbi Beckhorn


Since June is our annual picnic, and our June program has been moved to November, I thought if any of you are interested we could have “A Sit and Sew” after the picnic. So, if you are working on a quilt, or doing some embroidery or have something going on your knitting needles, whatever you are doing bring it to work on after the luncheon.

  • June - “A Sit and Sew”

  • July – Social Day, bring a project to sit and sew (a few sewing stations available) or join in on a “wire quilt” project at Ann Hawkins’ barn. Bring your lunch and a lawn chair.

  • August - Temari Class (Japanese Hand Ball) with Ann Hawkins

  • September - Open

  • October - Open

  • November - Mary Grimaldi is going to have a class on her sweet little dress towel

WOW - WOW !!  The duffle bag full of fat quarters and a few packages of batting received about 120 raffle tickets! Lake to Lake Quilt Guild sold a total of 70 Travel Club Passports (Show and Member sales).  The winner of the Duffle Bag of Fat Quarters was a local woman, Cheryl Wolkonowski.  She has been wanting to learn to quilt so bought a ticket promising that she would get started if she won!!  And she did.  Bobbi gave her our membership info and invited her to come to our guild. We hope to see quilts made by her soon!


A number of people attending Donna Strelow's Demo on Hand Quilting at the Quilt Show wanted the name of the marking pen she recommends!  It's a FriXion by Pilot, comes in a number of colors, cost is approximately $2.63 and it is available at Nancy's, Leroy's, Ivy Thimble and Sew Creative (and probably other places including the internet too).


This is the recipe "like" Best Press starch.
Mix together:
1 tsp scented essential oil (found in Walmart candle supplies aisle and they have lots of scents)

Note: scent is optional if allergic to scents.
3 oz. vodka (YES vodka) LOL (Hint: Vodka is made from potatoes , a natural starch.)
Add to 24oz distilled water in large spray bottle and shake well.
Add one drop of food color per gallon (optional)

Posted by Precious Treasures at Monday, September 26, 2011: My mom went and got the supplies for it today and she got linen scent and it smells so good! With all the ingredients it was under $15 to make 2 gallons and one small bottle of Best Press costs you that much! I love saving money with quilting :)

RIDE NEEDED: Are there any quilters in the Geneva, Border City area that would be willing to give me a ride to the meetings, so I can rejoin the guild? Spinal issues prevent me from driving a lot. Just attended the Quilt Show in Phelps. Good job!!! Not enough hand-quilted pieces.  Terry W. Boyd
