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:
Christmas in May - This month's special is 30% off most Christmas fabrics (minimum 1 yard cuts) and Christmas kits.  Exceptions are brand new Christmas fabrics and kits.  Also on special at 30% off are apron kits, which include an apron panel and the fabric to line it.  There will be other in store fabric specials, different each week, come in and see.

AccuQuilt specials start on May 10th.  If you have thought about a GO! Cutter, you will like this month's special.  Call me or come in for details.

News:
Sorry, the Quilters' luncheon has been postponed until fall.

Quilt Retreats - What's nicer than Fall in Montana?  How about a quilt retreat - even better, how about two quilt retreats?  Because of the waiting list for the October 20th-21st-22nd retreat, we have added a second retreat the weekend before, October 13th, 14th, and 15th.  Cost is $150.00.  These two retreats will each feature a trunk show on Applique.  Two kits will be included in the cost, one for Needle Turn Applique and one for Machine Applique.  The retreats are held at The Barnsion, five miles east of Harlowton.  It's a wonderful facility, with a beautiful view of the mountains, and sand hill cranes calling in the mornings.  You can check it out at TheBarnsion.com.  Down payment of $75.00, paid by August 15, will hold your spot.  For more details, give me a call.

Imagine That Club - There's still time to join.  Pay $5.00, receive your fat quarter (everyone gets the same fabric), then make whatever your imagination tells you (except pot holders), adding any desired additional fabrics, as long as you use the fat quarter fabric someplace in the project.  The unveiling party will be September 16th with food, prizes and fun.

Is it yours?  We still have the lost bracelet from the last quilters luncheon.

New Moda Layer Cake Recipes - Have you wondered what to do with those layer cakes you bought?  Solution - Layer Cake Recipes.  Each recipe contains enough papers to make a complete quilt, just add a solid Layer Cake, which should be arriving soon.

Classes and Events:
May 6 - Beginning quilting
May 8 - Mother's Day specials at the store all week.  Mother's Day sale starts May 8th and runs through May 13th.
May 13 - The May Quilters' Luncheon has been cancelled.
Sorry, no Sew Saturday in May.
May 20 - UFO club lunch, and we will choose a new project number.  It will be interesting to see who brings dessert besides me.  Some participants have most of their UFO's from January finished.  Do you suppose I could palm some of mine off onto our overachievers?  Soup lunch if the weather is cool, or I will make a salad if it's warm - to go with the dessert I know I am bringing.
May 27 - Memorial Day weekend - No class, but we will be open Saturday.
May 29 - Closed Monday for Memorial Day.

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

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.

Mother and child 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.
August featured a "stained glass" table runner.
September featured a turkey placemat.
October featured An American In Paris table runner.

This Saturday activity runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

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.
