From The President:

Easter Blessings to all of you! I hope you enjoyed time with family and friends. I know I did. I took my great grandson to Almont Park for an egg hunt, along with my daughter and one of my granddaughters. I needed those young legs to chase after this almost 3 year old little ball of energy. The Easter bunny arrived via HELICOPTER! Can you believe it? I have to tell you, I had as much fun as he did, if not more. On Sunday my daughter had all of us over for a wonderful dinner. I am so grateful for all of them. 
Oh my goodness, wasn’t Laura Patterson delightful? Her trunk show was fabulous!
It was such a treat to be able to touch her quilts and view them up close, her quilting techniques. She is a very talented lady!  I know that each and every one of these speakers inspire me. I hope they inspire you too!

 
President’s Challenge:

Well, this month I’m thinking we should bring in something floral. It can be a quilt, 
Totes, purses, wall hanging or a table runner or whatever you have for show and tell. I love seeing all of the beautiful things that you have made. I love hearing the stories behind them. YOU ARE ALL AN INSPIRATION to me. I learn something at each meeting. So, come on, let’s make this a huge show and tell. 

P.S. Alma, did you make and Easter wall hanging? I hope so!



Betsy Koss will be our speaker for April! She considers herself a traditional quilter but often takes antique blocks and puts them in unusual settings designing her own quilts. She has been teaching how to mark quilts, how to fix old quilt tops to retain their value and various quilting techniques including BIG STITCH.

The workshop is on Thursday, April 27,2017, at 10:00 A.M. The address is : 
Linda’s Quilt Shop, 3058 N State Road F, Davison, Mi. 48423 (810-658-9051).
Betsy will show you how to use your old blocks, unfinished tops and vintage quilts.
