Signing Off

Well, I am sure you can tell I have abandoned this site. Sorry to all the potential fans out there! If I figure out how to delete it from cyberspace I will.

Home Ec. Show-Offs

Would you look at that proud stack of gumdrop pillows! The pillows (pattern by Amy Butler) were all made by Mrs. Stavig's 8th grade Home Ec. students.  For many it was their first experience with a sewing machine and they all did a great job.

NWQG Spring Retreat

The Annual Retreat was awesome this year, thanks in (a huge) part to Diane. We had such a good time in the classroom making our Entwinded quilt, an original pattern by Pam Ventgen. The weather was lovely and we were able to walk and take breaks.  Every time we would visit down to the Home Ec. room, all the ladies there were happily quilting along, too. Please let me know if there are success pictures you would like me to post. These two Entwined quilt tops were the first to be finished. Julie's is the pink floral and Tammy's is the purple gem.

NWQG Spring Retreat News

Here it is ...INSPIRATION...
Diane brought us the sample quilt for the Spring Retreat class (what a cool optical illusion made with basically a nine patch). The class will be during the weekend of April 18 and will be taught by Pam, a quilting teacher from Anchorage. Can't wait to see you all there. I'll post more when I know yardage and color suggestions:)
