January 2014

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.  
If you want a zoom view of a single slide, click on the slide.
Be sure to click on Quilts of Valor  and you'll see quilts made for Quilts of Valor here in SW Oregon and recipients of those quilts. Cindy Roche' is the SW Oregon Regional Coordinator and she shares Quilts of Valor at Show and Tell.
Click on Quilts of Valor for Cindy's Facebook page where you'll see quilts given in our local area.

Mountain Stars Opportunity Quilt 2014  
"Passing Fancy" is back from our machine quilter guild member Nan McVay and is ready to go out and about as a major fund raiser for Mountain Stars Quilters Guild. Another view of "Passing Fancy"  and the Historic Nunan House in Jacksonville, Oregon. The quilt was made by members of the guild, the pieced blocks and the needleturn hand applique.  The pattern designer is Kim Diehl. We had extra blocks so the creative extra border was added as a special touch. The quilt is 82" X 82". Opportunity tickets will be available at all the guild meetings and local venues.             "Passing Fancy" in the Rose Garden.
The tickets are $1.00 each  6 for $5.00 and 30 for $20.00. You will not want to miss purchasing your winning ticket!!! If you would like to order tickets please contact us on the Contact Form.

 Please join us on Tuesday~ April 22, 2014
Time: 1:00 -2:00 pm.  at the Jackson County Genealogy Library 3405 South Pacific Highway, Medford Oregon.
                 "Table Rock"
by Larry Smith- The Fritillaria gentneri, one of Oregon's rarest plants, is found only in Southern Oregon. This rare and showy Red Bell is found in the woodlands surrounding Jacksonville, OR.
In 1944, Dr. Louis gentner reported on this unknown species of fritillary.  Who was Louis Gentner?   

                  "Table Rock Quilt"
The third block down on the left side is titled "Red Bells".

  The art layout and research on this quilt was done by artist Evelyn Byrne Williams.
The quilt was made by the Jacksonville Museum Quilters and finished in 1994.  The quilt is now in the collection of the Rogue Valley Genealogy Society.
