October quilting retreat at Barnsion
The Barnsion is east of Harlowton.  Look for the Barnsion on either Facebook or thebarnsion.com
 
My newsletter coupon good for one purchase during the month at 25% discount is back!  Coupon may be applied to regularly priced fabric, kits, sewing notions and patterns.  (Exceptions are listed on the coupon.)  Expires 4/30/2017, may not be used in conjunction with another coupon.

For store news and subscriber coupons, please sign up for my mailing list - here's the link to send me your email address.

Store Sales:
Sale fabrics continue - minimum 1 yard cuts - finish a bolt of sale fabric and receive 1/2 off the original price.
Ask me about AccuQuilt specials.

News:
Quilters Luncheon - Betty Phillips at the Graves is having another Quilter's Luncheon on May 13th from noon until 2 p.m.  The one in March was great, so expect fun!  There will be demos, door prizes, store discounts.  For more details and reservations, call Betty at 406-632-5798.  We will have store specials that day.

Found lost bracelet - If you attended the Quilter's luncheon at the Graves hotel on March 4th and are missing a bracelet with a magnetic clasp, you may claim it by giving us a description.  It attached itself to one of our tables (metal rim)

Quilt Retreat - I think everyone had a great time at the Quilt retreat this past weekend at the Barnsion.  How can you go wrong with the facility, its location, and spring sand hill cranes and geese calling in the morning and evening?  A sheep drive occurred while we were there, also.  We got to watch 2400 sheep come up the road and move behind the Barnsion!  They will be sheared this week, and then lambing starts.
  The next retreat is April 21, 22 and 23.  We could add another 5 people if I know right away, as we only have one side of the Barnsion reserved.  It will be a trunk show on projects made using the AccuQuilt Go Cutters, and each participant will receive a kit to make a table runner using the cutters.
  The Fall retreat will feature applique.  It is scheduled for October 20, 21, and 22, and already has a waiting list.

Imagine that Club - Pay $5.00, receive a fat quarter of fabric.  (Everyone gets the same fabric.)  You can add as many other fabrics as you like, and make whatever your imagination tells you, as long as it is not pot holders.  Unveiling party with prizes, food, and fun will be September 16th.

Classes:
April 8 - Sew Saturday, come sew or cut fabric for quilt tops that will be finished and donated to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch.  Brown bag lunch.  I will bring dessert.  We do have donated fabric for these quilts.
* April 15 - Applique class.  Needle Turn Applique in the morning, Machine Applique in the afternoon.  $40.00 for the class, includes two kits provided.  Please let me know by Friday morning, if you plan to attend.
** April 21, 22, 23 - Quilt Retreat Barnsion - fives miles out of Harlowton
*** April 29 - Refresher class  No charge!  Have you taken a class and not finished your project?  Need a refresher to help remember what it was you were doing?  Now is the time.  Please let me know by Thursday, April 27th what project it is you need refreshed.  If you have taken a class from me in the past, put your project aside and need help finishing it, this is the class for you.

Please call to sign up for classes by the Wednesday preceding the class.  If you think of any classes you might be interested in taking, please make suggestions.

Any questions, please give me a call. - Diana

Farmer's Wife quilt

Imagine That Beach Ladies project entry
Join the sewing fun at Diana's Quilts-n-Things!

My quilting groups are friendly gatherings where you can concentrate, share, work, and learn.  My store has special equipment and work space for quilters to use, and lots of materials and patterns.  Come on in to work on your projects - where everything you need is at hand, including new techniques and experienced advice.

PREPARATIONS: If a club or class member is bringing a guest, or if you want to attend a single session, or if you are a class subscriber and want to switch Saturdays, please contact Diana beforehand.

1st Saturday of each month in 2017 is Sew Saturday sewing quilts for charity - all hands are welcome, no fee, potluck.  It does help if you let me know you are planning to attend.  Fabric donations are welcome!

My Imagine That Club is an annual challenge.  Each Imagine That Club participant receives a free fat quarter of a select fabric to inspire a project, and then works at home to create whatever they imagine from it.  An Imagine That project can be a quilt, a wall hanging, or whatever someone wants to make.  There is just one limitation:  "NO potholders, please."  Use your Imagination!  Your project can be any size and may include other fabrics as you like, but it must include at least part of the fat quarter.  (Small pieces count.)  In August or September all the participants will get together for an Unveiling Party with food and prizes.  $5 participation fee, open to anyone.

If you have questions on any of these, please give me a call. (406-632-4861)


Saturday classes are all day classes starting at 9:30 a.m. and running until 4:30 p.m.

Valentine's Day heart. 12 Months of Holidays:
In 2014, we sewed the 12 Months of Christmas, completing easy Christmas projects including a Christmas stocking, themed wall hangings, coasters, table centers and table mats, and a mug rug.

In 2015, we sewed 12 Months of Holidays.  This included a different project each month and many different techniques.  Kits for the projects were priced at 25% off.  These quick and easy projects help you decorate for holidays, and make seasonal gifts.  To attend for a specific project, pay a class fee, plus the cost of the kit.

January featured a Valentine's Day wall hanging, using reverse applique.
February featured a Easter project.
March featured a Spring project.
April featured a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.
May featured a Tumbler block flag for July.

Sew Saturday quilts for charity. Sew Saturday:
We will be sewing quilts to donate for charity fund raisers.  Some quilts will be going to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, some to Special K Ranch in Columbus, some to A Safe Place in Helena, which is for Military women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress, and others where ever else we feel they can be used.

To keep up our stamina, each Sew Saturday will feature a pot luck lunch.

1st Saturday of each month, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Anyone is welcome.  If you can, please let me know by the day before, if you would like to participate or donate fabric.

Construction of a One Block Wonder quilt. One Block Wonder:

AccuQuilt logo

Quilts on this website made with the GO! Cutter are the Bugs quilt #6-1066, this geometric quilt #6-1067, and the rag quilt #6-1024.                    

GoGo Club was a Monday night club in 2010.

Detail from Progressive quilt Progressive Quilt:
There is no pattern for the progressive quilt - each person creates a quilt center from good quality 100% cotton fabric, and passes the started quilt on to another group member, who adds the next section, and so on.  When a quilt has been completed, with care from everyone in the group, it returns to the person who started it to keep.  There's a better picture of this quilt in the Gallery.

The Progressive Quilt was a Monday night club in 2011.

Scaregirl wall hanging (detail) Seasonal Club:
We enjoy making small projects related to the seasons.  Wall hangings, table runners, and other fun fabric art items make it easy to dress up our homes.

The Seasonal Club was a Monday night club in 2012.
