People’s Choice Award Winner at the State Fair

Hi Members,

I am usually not one to toot my own horn, but don’t know if anyone from the guild went to the fair. Anyway, thought you might want to put on the blog that one of our members won the People’s Choice Award at the fair. That would be me, Ginger Dale.

Very interesting the difference between a quilt show and the state fair. Whole different audience!! There were about 150 quilts displayed and over 1000 votes cast. Most of the remarks given on my quilt were they appreciated story of the quilt and they liked being able to see the state flowers from where they have lived, etc.

Workshop & Program Committee looking for help

We are still looking for help on the workshop and program committee. If you can help even with some of the meetings or workshops let me know. It takes a village or many hands make light the work with this committee. The more people we have helping the easier it will be. We will train and you get to pick the workshops and programs, how fun. We have many resources for programs and workshops too.

Magic of Winter Sampler

Peggy Gelbrich wanted everyone to know that this pattern is called Magic of Winter Sampler by Jason Yenter. It is an older pattern booklet and might be hard to find. I can’t remember who asked for this for this pattern name so will have this for the blog.

Finishing School – Thu. Sep. 22 from 10am to 4pm

Finishing School will be meeting on Thu. Sep. 22 from 10am to 4pm  at the Carriage House at the Lincoln County Historical Museum at 545 SW 9th St., Newport.

It is a great time to work on a project without being interrupted. You may bring your machine or hand work we will have an iron there for you to use. You may come at any time and stay as long as you like. Bring a sack lunch or go out whatever you would rather do. It is also a great way to get to know other guild members and get help on a project that you need advice on.

A fun time is had by all.

Calling All Long-Arm Quilters!

The 2023 Raffle Quilt Committee would like to gather bids on quilting next year’s raffle quilt. It is about 78” square. The guild will provide a wide-back backing and a Quilter’s Dream Request batting. Please suggest the following: type and color(s) of thread you propose to use, whether the quilting will be semi-custom or all custom, an approximate finish date, your designs, and the cost. Have I forgotten something important?

These photos from my design wall aren’t very good and are just intended to give you a basic idea of the quilt. (Storm at Sea blocks, graduated shades of teal.) If you’d like to see the quilt in person, you can come to my house, to a Bayshore Friday, or we can meet somewhere else—just let me know!


Thanks in advance on behalf of the 2023 Raffle Quilt Committee: Georgia Sabourin, Meralee Wilson, Darcy de la Rosa and me. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Regards, Jean Amundson
