June 20, 2010, 9:00AM - 4:00PM
Fenn Hall, McFarlin United Methodist Church
Cost $35
Sign up today!

The QUILTER’S QUANDARY project workshop teaches rotary cutting, organization for stress-less piecing, precision piecing, and design concepts while making a stunning project. Quilters may choose to focus more attention on cutting, more attention on precision piecing, or a balance between the two, allowing them to work on the skills they need to develop the most.

Registration for this amazing class has begun and we have a few seats left. For more information, please contact Theresa Duval at duval229@gmail.com.

Thank you very much,
The Grand Lake O’The Cherokees Quilt Guild, Grove, OK.

May 16 is Community Quilting Day

I hope to see each of you on Monday, May 16th, from 10am to 8pm. We will have lots of things
going on and will be able to keep everyone busy. Come for an hour or two or
come for the day -- it will be fun.

We have a good supply of children's prints but we need more solid fabrics
to go with them. Please consider diving into your stash and donating bright
solid or "reads as solid" 100% cotton fabric to Community Quilts. We can use
scraps, fat quarters, yardage -- any and all will be gratefully accepted. I can pick
your fabric up or you can bring it to any meeting.

As always, thank you so very much for the work you all do for Community
Quilts. It's a joy to take the beautiful quilts to our recipients.

Chair, Community Quilts
