Welcome back Quilters! Your Program Committee, Noemi Bowers, Kelly Cummings, Paula Meiner, Pam Riss, and Debbie Sherman, is working to implement the programs scheduled by prior program committees. We will be working to schedule the programs/workshops for 2021-22. In order to help us with these plans, we will be conducting a survey in October to gather your ideas and direction. The last guild survey was in 2007. Currently, all workshops have openings except Lisa Bongean in December and Christa Watson in February.
This year, volunteers needed for programs/workshops will be asked to sign up using the online program, SignUpGenius. In order to help members who may be unfamiliar with this program, Kelly Cummings will provide instruction during the September meeting. In the meantime, if you can download the app “SignUpGenius,” that would be great. Go to the app store on your phone and search for “SignUpGenius”, all one word. It’s an app for event organizing and has orange in the background. It is a free app, so if you find something that shows a charge, you are at the wrong app. Having the app on your phone will assist in looking at the steps during the September meeting. If you do not have a smart phone or access to the Internet, do not worry, we will be accepting your help via another avenue.
Our September presenter is DeLoa Jones who has been an avid quilter for 40 years. Many of DeLoa’s designs are influenced by her sense of traditional quilting with a little twist added. DeLoa has had a machine quilting business for 20 years in which she has a running count of about 7500 quilts. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and designs with her students. DeLoa was awarded the 2011 MQX Teacher of the Year. She has authored five books and has a line of rulers and stencils. DeLoa has appeared on QNNTV.com and with Linda Taylor on the QuiltingSchool.com. Her web site is www.deloasquiltshop.com Our September schedule will be as follows:
September 5 - Thursday Lecture - Dressed to Quilt
September 6 - Friday Workshop - Block Party (Machine Quilting Technique Class)
September 7 - Saturday Workshop - Rose Log Cabin
There are openings in both workshops.
Block Party with DeLoa Jones
September 6, 20219
Block Party is a drawing/design planning class for domestic and long-arm machine quilting.
DeLoa will teach you many ways to quilt a block with continuous curves, loops, twists, curls, stencils, and feathers. She will show you how to quilt your way around the block and home again with little marking and few stops and starts.
DeLoa also will show you how to connect blocks with the other quilting on your quilt to make your quilting time more productive. She will share many ways to quilt traditional quilts and various blocks.
You will be able to tackle that next sampler with a lot of design ideas.
Students are urged to bring orphan blocks or quilt tops to discuss quilting ideas, a dry erase pen (Expo for example) and pen/pencil for drawing.
Rose Log Cabin with DeLoa Jones

This bed of roses is not only appealing but is an easy step-by-step quilt to make. Both blocks are versions of a log cabin block with different size strips and a few quick corners. The blocks and layouts are such that a beginner as well as an advanced quilter will have fun with this quilt.
