694-7655                            Dear Quilters,
weaver@roadrunner.com
                                           January ushered in a VERY snowy month! I hope that
Vice President             our snowiest time is just about over. It was interesting to read in the
Joan Rockenbrock           paper that other cities had more snow than WNY. Syracuse never gets
694-5732                   the snow reputation that we do, but they get lots more snow! Oh well,
rockenbrockj@aol.com
                           on the bright side, we did get our share of exercise shoveling, didn't
Secretary:                 we?
Sandra Woolson-VanDette                    The upside to winter is that we have the indoor time to
861-6729                   spend on projects. I have had time for several fleece and flannel Linus
smwvandette@roadrunner.com quilts. I have finished the confirmation stoles that I make for our
                           church. I have begun some projects for possible Christmas gifts for
Corresponding              next year! (That may never happen again.) I also found two pieces to
Secretary/Sunshine:        put into our quilt show. I feel like I'm really ahead of the game, for a
Cheryl Shoemaker           little while at least.
731-2861                                   February brings YOU the opportunity to get ahead of the

                           game, too. On the 19th of the month, you can either attend the guild's
Treasurer:
                           UFO day and learn how to put sleeves on your quilts for the show, or
Linda Berwaldt             you could attend the National Make a Blanket event for Project Linus.
693-8096                   Either day will be time well spent. Have trouble choosing colors for
lynber@roadrunner.com      your quilts? There is a seminar for that at Marie's fabric store in
                           Lockport. Want to just stay home? Make a lap robe, small quilt,
Refreshments:              pillow case or throw pillow for our veterans in Hospice care. It looks

Charities For All!! Update!!
Our Charity Committee for 2011-2012 will continue to do Breast Cancer pillows, chemo caps, pillow cases and
Christmas stockings as usual.
Here’s the news! We have new opportunities for all of us to help this year regarding our enlisted men and
women and Veterans. We will be collecting pillowcases, pillow covers, throw pillows and lap robes for them.
The lap robes can be quilted, crochet-edged fleece, knitted or crocheted. Please note that all items must be made
with patriotic or military themed fabrics and colors! These items will be donated to local organizations, areas in
the United States such a Walter Reed Hospital as well as overseas.
Additionally we want to help our four legged friends, but we are expanding to the feline side. Anyone who knits
or crochets has leftover scraps of yarn. We are asking you crochet or knit 10” x 14” blankets which we will
donate to the SPCA. These blankets are placed on the bottom of the wire cages for the kitties/cats comfort and
protection. Mixes of colors don’t matter as out little friends aren’t fussy, they just love the comfort.
As always, we’ll take donations of any of these fabrics and yarns and we’ll be glad to share them with our
members to use for these projects.
Thanks again for your continued help!!
Sincerely, Karen Rowles and the Charity Committee

       ** Preparing the Pieces and Sewing the Block **
                         Start by marking and cutting the Color 3 2-1/2" x 20" strip
                         into eight 2-1/2" squares...

                        To make the Snowball units, lay one of the Color 3 2-1/2"
                        square lined up with one corner of the Color 1 6-1/2" squares,
                        edges aligned and right sides together. Draw a diagonal line
                        on the back of the small square, and sew ON this diagonal
                        line. Cut off the excess seam allowance, leaving 1/4". Press
                        the remaining seam allowance towards the outside. Repeat
                        this with the opposite corner, and then again with the two
                        remaining corners. Repeat the same procedure with the last
                        four Color 3 squares and the Color 2 6-1/2" square...

                                             Next sew the Color 2 2-1/2" x 10" strip to
                                             one Color 3 2-1/2" x 10" strip, right sides
                                             together. Press the seam allowance towards
                                             the darker fabric. Add another Color 3 2-
                                             1/2" x 10" strip to the other side of the Color
                                             2 strip, again pressing towards the darker
                                             fabric. Cut this unit at 2-1/2" intervals to
                                             make four strips...
                              Next sew a Color 3 2-1/2" x 5" strip right sides together to
                              a Color 1 2-1/2" x 5" strip. Press seam allowance towards
                              the darker fabric. Add another Color 1 2-1/2" x 5" strip to
                              the other side of the Color 3 strip, again pressing towards
                              the darker fabric. Cut this unit at 2-1/2" intervals to make
                              two two-color units...
