We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and  tell bits of information about how they were made  or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild  meeting.  
Our Show & Tell quilts are posted on Facebook.     

  During the actual Show & Tell time Marley Sharpe will be photographing your quilt so she can post them on Facebook.

Cascade Lily is a pattern designed  by and used with permission from Polly Minick and   Laurie Simpson. Polly and Laurie are sisters and named their pattern Coastal Lily but the Mountain Stars Quilters Guild renamed their quilt to make it fit our beautiful Cascade Mountain range. The quilt is a “Show Stopper” just like  Mt. McLoughlin just south of Crater Lake. It is the tallest peak in the    Cascade Mountains between Mt. Thielsen in the north and Mt. Shasta in the south. 

            Cascade Lily is 97” X 100” - Thank you to Cottage Quilts~Medford, OR for donating fabric .

The blocks were made by members of the Mountain Stars Quilters Guild.  The quilt was made by  Cathy Lang , machine quilted by Carol Dickson. The label  by Susann  Tresner.  Quilt mother is Elizabeth Luebberke. Elizabeth will be selling tickets so you may have the opportunity to win this beautiful quilt!  She would like guild members  to step up to help sell tickets at guild and venues.  This Opportunity Quilt is a fund raiser for our guild. .  Elizabeth’s contact info is in our membership book.

QUILTS and GENEALOGY TALKS
        PROGRAM SCHEDULE  2017

Once upon a time . . . the very talented quilters from the Jacksonville Museum Quilters Guild set out to make unique quilts, each with a story to tell about the inhabitants and early history of the Rogue Valley.  Many years later the collection found itself without a home.  Ultimately, the historical quilt collection was donated to the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) where the quilts are displayed in the reading room at the Library.

One of the objectives of the JCGL Quilt Committee is to focus on the relationship of quilts to family history and genealogy.  Toward that end, we will continue the series of “Quilts and Genealogy”. These talks are given on the fourth Tuesday each month (except for December) at 1:30 pm at JCGL.

Mountain Stars Quilters Guild Meeting: 

Join Mountain Stars Quilters Guild: 

When: Saturday May 13, 2017

Social:       10 AM    Early Bird    Paper Piecing

English Paper Piecing (also known as EPP) is the latest new old sewing method that is gaining in popularity again. Paper Piecing (EPP) is EASY, ACCURATE and (best of all) PORTABLE. Several members asked for a class so we are having one at the May meeting. Please join us at 10am for EPP Early Bird Ed!

We will have a kit for each participant that will include the hexagon templates and the fabric to make a hexagon flower. The kits are provided free from Paper Pieces and Blank Quilting.

SUPPLY LIST:

Hand sewing needle. A smaller needle is preferred but bring whatever needle is com-fortable for you. Our instructors suggest a Sharp #9 needle, a Betweens Quilting needle, or a #11 Appliqué needle.

Thread - a light or medium neutral color such as light or medium beige or grey (or whatever matches your fabric – see NOTE below.) Our instructors use Bottom Line by Superior Threads, So Fine by Superior Threads or any lightweight #50 silk finish, 100% cotton thread.

Scissors

Glue stick (any kind or size will do)

Thimble, if you use one.

Needle threader, if you need one.

And what will you do with your completed project? You can make a coaster, use it to make a small pillow as pictured above or – make a bunch more for a quilt!

NOTE: The fabrics that come with the kit are rather plain. If you wish and have a specific color scheme or project in mind you can bring your own 2” fabric squares. Cut one 2” square for your center; traditionally the center square is a dark color but as you can see from the photo above you can go “modern.” Cut six (6) 2” squares for the hexagon flower “petals.” Commonly the petals are all one color but you can choose your own color or col-ors (refer to photo above.) Keep in mind what fabric you want to use as a background for your hex flower.

 

Hospitality 11 AM    It’s a “Potluck” - Bring anything you wish. Yummmmmmmmm

Business: 12 Noon

Where: Live Oak Grange 120 Gardiner Rogue River, OR

And: Fat Quarter Drawing         May Flowers ~ ”Floral Prints”

DIAMOND LAKE Spring  RETREAT 2017-  Mark your calendar!!! 

 

 
Spring Retreat ~ May 19, 20, & 21, 2017
     

This year’s Diamond Lake spring retreat is scheduled for the third weekend in May, the 19th, 20th, 21st.  As is customary, the spring retreat is for working on UFO’s – no structured class is planned, just as much quilting time as you want to spend.  The registration coupon is in this newsletter.

For anyone new to our retreats, we have the use of a huge sewing room upstairs at the Diamond Lake Resort building and table space to sew at.  The guild provides two raised cutting tables, four ironing boards with irons, and coffee and hot water.

Participants bring their own sewing and projects and whatever else you need.  We all bring snack food to share with each other.

As far as cost, your $40 fee pays for the room rental and expenses incurred in putting on the retreat with any surplus going toward Mt. Stars’ guild.  Each participant makes their own housing and meal arrangements.  Many of the participants share cabins or motel rooms with each other and many of the cabin renters cook some or all of their meals there.  As a time of fellowship, most of us go to dinner together on Friday night in one of the Resort dining rooms.

Room and cabin reservations can be made by calling the Resort at 1-800-733-7593 and be sure to mention that you are with Mt. Stars’ Quilter’s Guild.
