Quilter's Nest News, November, 2014
Merry Christmas Friends,
And almost Happy New Years!!! I ran drastically behind this month and I apologize. I had quilter’s coming in the shop telling me they thought their husband’s had deleted our newsletter before they had a chance to read it. Nope, you just didn’t get it yet. I was doing pretty well, I had decided to vend at a Church Bazaar and had worked really hard getting ready and I was also having a really good month in my Etsy shop, so trying to stay caught up with that, and then we received the news that my mother in law passed away. It really wasn’t a surprise, she was 92 and had been in a nursing home for 11 years, but still you are not ready for it when you get that call. I’m sure she is up there playing Christmas Carols on the piano with a little “swing” added to them; she was quite a talented pianist and had played in numerous dance bands. We will miss her. When we returned home, we still had to set up my booth for the bazaar. Then, my husband, who is recently retired went back to work part-time. So much for my home cooked meals ready when I got home from work, it sure was nice while it lasted. We did manage to get our tree up and decorated, but that was about it on the decorating this year. Well, of course, I decided at the last minute that I had to make some things for the grandchildren. 10 pillowcases, 8 over the headrest bags, 2 quilted wall hangings, and 4 crocheted scarves later I was ready for Christmas, which we had last Saturday. I am finally getting to the newsletter!!
 
Thank you for all of the cards, gifts, and cookies that we received this year. Each one was treasured.
 
Quite a few of you have asked us for our class schedule for next year so that you can plan ahead and buy your fabric on January 1 at our sale. Mary and I got busy this morning
and got that done. I have also updated our calendar on Google, so you can check it out there.
 
Mary is teaching the Butterfly Quilt right now. The class continues until the end of January. They are just beginning to put the quilt together. Here is a picture of a portion of Judy Kissel’s quilt,
 
 
and a picture of a portion of Mary’s quilt.
 
 
Both stunning.
 
OK, here goes the class schedule –
We will have Open Sew on January 2, we provide supper.
 
TT Club – Mary is again hosting the Table Runner Club which meets the 2nd Thursday of every month from 12:00 – 4:00. There is a $25.00 registration fee and your fabric kit is $12.00/month. Here is a picture of the first month.
 
 
Advanced Beginner Piecing Academy begins Monday, January 12 for 4 consecutive Mondays afternoon or evening.
 
 
Eureka begins January 13 and will run every other Tuesday for 10 lessons. This is a gorgeous quilt that is not difficult. You do need to pay attention to what you are doing though.
 
 
Magnetic Midnight is on Saturday, January 17. You make this striking quilt with a Jelly Roll, so your cutting is easy.
 
 
Joy begins on January 20 and will run every other Tuesday for 8 lessons. I think the picture on the pattern is a little busy, here are a couple of my blocks.
 
 
Open Sew on the 23rd will be brown bag.
 
Day Break is on Saturday, January 24. This quilt is a little more advanced and takes some time, but I think the quilt is well worth it. This quilt uses the Hex N More Ruler and the Sidekick ruler.
 
 
Nova Queen is also on the January 24.

 
A beautiful star quilt without Y seams. You will learn to use the 120 degree triangle ruler.
 
Happy Quilting,
Holly and Mary
