Dan Burke Lecture March 2011

The Evening Star Quilters were impressed by the colors of the quilts and enthusiasm of Dan Burke, Lansing area quilter.  Dan visited the guild for our March 2011 meeting and did a trunk show of his work.  The following are just a few pictures from that show to show you the vibrant use of color in his quilts.

Quilts for Japan

Quilters Newsletter has long enjoyed a friendship with Patchwork Tsushin, a leading Japanese quilt magazine. So when Editor in Chief Naomi Ichikawa emailed to say her magazine is collecting comfort quilts for those impacted by the recent earthquake in Japan, we wanted to join the effort. QN will gather quilts from U.S. quiltmakers then forward them to Naomi and her staff, who will deliver them to those in need. (If you live outside the United States, email me as indicated below, and I will provide information on how you can send quilts directly to Naomi.)

Here’s how you can be part of this important worldwide response:

•    Send quilts of any size from baby to adult to:

Dana Jones

•    Mark your box: “Quilts for Japan.”
•    Send quilts as soon as possible and no later than April 30, 2011.
•    Enclose your name, address, phone number, and email address with the quilts.

If you have questions, please email Dana Jones.
