Hoffman Ombres - pattern 851 - These just came in and are gorgeous.  Approximately 20 different colors.  Each one ranges from light to dark.

The winner of the March drawing, Arlene Wright of Lewistown, received a fat quarter bundle as her prize.

Gally's Brewery is now open Tuesdays through Sundays.  During the week, it is 2:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Sunday hours are different (short term memory, I think they open at noon, but I could be wrong)  Check their Facebook page.

Jackalope Sage Toy Store is now open, Tuesdays through Saturdays, I believe.  Located on Central Avenue in Harlowton.

Imagine that Club - Pay $5.00 for a fat quarter (everyone gets the same fabric), then make anything your imagination tells you, (except pot holders) Unveiling party will be September 8th.  Food, fun, and discounts that day.

Farmer's Wife quilt

2017 Imagine That project
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 was 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.

February featured a Easter project.
March featured a Spring project.
April featured a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.

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.

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.
