    FEBRUARY 2010

   It seems I'm always in the process of getting ready to do something or another. Right now I'm in the throes of putting
   together the kits for the February workshop. I'm stitching up the little doll bodies and parts, finding the tools and stuff-
   ing and trims, and polishing up the directions. I'm sure those of you who are enrolled will have lots of fun putting these
   little fairies together. I have room for a few more in the class, so if you are interested let us know before February 18 th
   and we will save room for you.
   Why so early? Well, I'm headed off to play Grandma with the little ones up in Portland, Oregon. My daughter lives so
   far away I only get to see that family three or four times a year. The littlest one is just two years old and she is a little
   doll herself. The oldest boy is now in school and is changing so quickly. I'll be up in the Northwest for 10 days and get
   back just in time for our bus trip to the Tri-County and Beaumont quilt shows on February 12th.
   Are you joining us for this trip? I'm looking forward to seeing the quilts and vendors at both shows, and to having an-
   other great time on the bus itself. The guild will furnish the drinks and eating utensils for lunch, the members are bring-
   ing pot luck dishes to share with each other. If you haven't joined us before for one of the trips, take this opportunity to
   experience a really great day with your friends and see what we are always talking about when we return. Don't forget
   to pack your camera!
   This month's meeting is all about me, and my related hobby of making dolls. I plan to show you how I progressed from
   general needlework into quilts and then into making cloth dolls. The skills translate easily and each craft brings its own
   sense of accomplishment. There will be lots of show and tell to share with you as well as revealing just “how do they do
   I've made some progress on my yearly goals. The first quilt is off to the long arm quilter and should be back in February.
   I've started on the second one – an old block of the month that is destined for a wedding present in March. Since the
   bride is also a quilter, she will understand if the gift doesn't make it for the ceremony. Certainly she will have it by June
   and I can work on my next one. I've been working on those pounds, and plans for the business are underway.
   We will see you all at the bus trip on Friday, Feb 12 (8 am at Quilt Emporium) and at the guild meeting on the regular
   third Thursday meeting day (Feb 18). Take care of yourself, and happy quilting. Bring those show and tell items.

Our February speaker is Nancy Roach who will translate quilting skills into three dimensions
while demonstrating basic doll making techniques. Nancie has been involved with this three di-
mensional quilting for many years and will be able to give us a glimpse into that side of the
quilting world.

Denise Green will be our March speaker, substituting for Sue Garman whose husband is very
ill. Denise is very close to Sue and will be presenting a program designed by Sue. Denise will
tell us about friendship group quilts. This includes round robins, patch swap and others. We
will learn how to organize and participate in these fun projects and also see some of Denise’s
beautiful examples.

Nicole Webb Rivera is our April speaker. Her topic is free motion quilting and she will show us
how this is done using visual equipment so we can see her actually quilting. Nicole is a very
well known, published quilter and artist. Don’t miss this exciting presentation!

I hope all of you are relaxing and having fun making pretty quilts. An apple a day--they say--keeps the doctor away. A
quilt project a day--I know--keeps the stress away.

Thoughts of gratefulness always abound for all of you who give of your time and donation of supplies and ideas.

FACT: We have over 150 members. Won't you consider quilting one top a month? When you receive your quilt top, there
is a label tucked in the band. Please stitch it to the backing during your quilt process or after.

Opportunities to help "Quilts from the Heart"

First Wednesday Bee: Held at Karen Shively's house each month. Bring your rotary cutter and mat to help with
matching fabrics and cutting to prepare kits for monthly Guild meeting.

HEB Sew Outing: Held the fourth Wednesday of each month @ store located on Hwy 6 @ Sienna Parkway. Bring sew-
ing machine, rotary cutter and mat, and rulers. Fabric and instructions are provided. We always have a great time
working on projects for QFTH.

Bo's Place: If you are interested in constructing a top using the blocks from this organization, let me know. Fabrics can
be supplied or you may use your fabric. Thanks to Penny Stanaford, Barbara Baxter, and Karen Shively for the two
quilts they completed.


Little Dresses for Africa--If you have gently used or new pillowcases to donate for this project, we are accepting them
to participate in making dresses for this charity. We will also be making "britches" for little boys. We made pillowcases
at our last HEB Sew Outing. You will receive more information on this as the project progresses.

1 Million Pillowcase Challenge--Unlike the project mentioned above--this involves MAKING pillowcases. Kits will be
available at the Guild meeting. Once you complete the project, return in the bag you received to QFTH as you do the
quilts. Pillowcases will then be delivered to Sunflower Quilts. We will keep a count of how many we donate.

Thank you for donating fabric, batting, batting scraps, orphan blocks, sewing supplies, and returning com-
pleted projects in a timely fashion. Don't forget to collect your ticket for completed items turned in which are good
toward the door prize drawings during the meeting.

I will not be at the February Guild meeting as I will be participating in a workshop. Well, I am off to work on my project
for the day.

    LIBRARIAN                                                                 by Carol Kettlewell

After several weeks of not being able to get into the library site, it is now up and running again.
I have added about 40 books that were donated or bought with money received from your dona-
tions. It has been a lot of fun to go through the patterns that are being donated. If you have
patterns that you now realize you will never use again or never use the first time and they are
just sitting there staring at you, bring them to the library area at the next meeting. They are
out of your sight and not taking up room in your pattern boxes and I am sure that someone else
would love to have those patterns. We sell them for a dollar and use that money and the quar-
ters from the magazine sales to add new books to our library. Remember that we would love to
have all your back copies of quilt magazines since the patterns never go out of style….maybe
the fabric colors but that can be overcome.
Be sure and check out the new books shelf on the library page and e-mail me. I will bring the
book for you to the next meeting and have it in the magazine/pattern area – just look for the
crowd at the end of the hall. You never know what you will find that you just have to have.

    REPRESENTATIVE AT LARGE                                                by Carole DeGruy

As usual our monthly meeting was a great time to visit with our “quilter” friends and catch up
on the newest techniques.

    WAYS AND MEANS                                                             by Barbara Beck

        Generally speaking a Ways and Means committee is an entity that pursues ways for an
organization to raise funds so that it can meet its goals. The Ways and Means Committee’s goal
is to forward the objectives of Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild: education, and charitable activities.
        Remember when CPQG began guild members donated quilts each month to pay the cost
of our speakers. We had a quilt hanging each month. We are now hanging an Opportunity
Quilt every three or four months.
       My concern is the source of the Opportunity Quilts, and timing. Right now “Jigsaw Joy”
is hanging. In February or March we will hang “Polka Dots and Butterflies”. In July or August
we will hang the “2010 Christmas Quilt”. Is there a Bee that is making the 2010 Christmas
       During 2010 we will be making many charity quilts, the donation quilt for the Church,
30” quilts for CPQG to auction during our first quilt show, baskets to auction, and those three
(3) items that everyone makes and donates for the Church Bazaar. This might not be every-
thing, but it is all I know right now.
      We will continue to do everything we can to forward the objectives of the Coastal Prairie
Quilt Guild, and we sincerely thank all Guild members for their support and kind help.

    BEES                               by Elizabeth Barrow and Barbara Penning

I am again mentioning to all the bees that each bee is requested to make a really nice basket to
auction off at the CPQG quilt show in September. Your baskets are to be ready to turn in
in August. I would like each bee to let me know the theme of you baskets so that we may avoid
too many duplicate baskets. I will be looking forward to hearing from each bee soon.
Thanks, Elizabeth Barrow

    “SEW” MUCH FUN                                                           by Linda Gremillion & Sandy Winston

Now on to our current activity a Mystery Quilt. The finished size of this quilt will be 38 inches by 52 inches. We
will be using bright color quilt shop quality fabric (no earth tones or pastels). This first block is finished size is 4 ¼
by 6 inches; if you want to participate and haven’t gotten a pattern just make any heart. Please make 7 blocks to
swap (place in a plastic bag with your name on it) and if you feel generous make an additional for QFTH. These
blocks were due at the January 2010 meeting and were will be passed back out at the February meeting. Let me
know if you would like to catch up and join in the fun. I know that many are wondering what this will be (and if
your like me you like to see the finished project first); but just trust me and have fun. We will be making seven
rows with one your are to make for yourself along with your borders so by September you will have all the blocks
you need along with assembly instructions (if you choose to follow them). Then hopefully we will have a show and
tell in Dec of 2010.
The second row to the Mystery Quilt was a 4 ½ inch block with a star on it. You will need to make 7 to swap (an
extra for QFTH if you like) remember bright colors. These blocks will be due in February and returned in March.
Pattern was available in January. Again, you may design your own star.
The third row is a cane; remember bright colors; this block’s finished size is 5 by 7 ½ inches. DO NOT REVERSE
this pattern. Make 6 (7 if generous); Block will be turned in to me in March and returned in April. Row four is
called a snowflake; make 6 to swap (7 if generous one for QFTH). This block is due in April.

DUE IN JANUARY                    DUE IN FEBRUARY               DUE IN MARCH                 DUE IN APRIL

    QUILT SHOW SILENT AUCTION                                          by Carol Kettlewell

I am so excited about our quilt show and I hope that you also are getting ready to participate in
all the opportunities being offered. I want to remind you of the auction quiltlet that we are ask-
ing each member to make for a money raising project during our quilt show. We are asking for
a small quilt that represents a season or special day to be made. Now this is not a big project –
it can be as small as 9” by 9” but no larger than 30” by 30” and must be a completed quilt with a
2” sleeve on the back. It can be pieced, appliqué, embroidery, or any other media that can be
quilted in some way. Your quilt can be heavily embellished or have none at all – whatever you
want to do but it must be a quilted project. Many of the clothing patterns in the library pattern
box have adorable little appliqué patterns that would be perfect for a project and of course there
are patterns in the older magazines that could be used. We will vote on our auction quilts dur-
ing our August meeting so you need to have those to me at or before that meeting. We will have
at least 4 really wonderful prizes to award at the end of the meeting. Remember we do the bus
trip in July so there is not a meeting that month. I, however, can usually be found at Quilter’s
Emporium on Thursday afternoons between 1 and 4.
