Please note this is the third Monday in July!
July Program- Member’s Show and Tell
of Quilt Week Classes & Challenge Quilt Reveal
Fat Quarter drawing for July- Itsy
Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini
Thank you to Lisa and Kayla for a great June meeting. With so much business to cover I’m sure
the wonder of the quilts you saw was more than enough to inspire you and grow
in appreciation of our craft. I
had a wonderful trip to MA, NH, ME, and CT having fun with old friends and not
having fun with a certain sewing machine as I struggled to complete a
quilt. I returned with a
ready-to-bind quilt and a bit of my “Bahstin” accent.
This is the time of the year when all the quilt shops are abuzz with
new fabric, books, kits and anticipation of big events. Isn’t it exciting? I went to Sisters to turn in my quilts
and saw every hint that something special was coming in a few weeks. I hope all of your stitches are
perfectly tensioned, colors perfectly placed and that you’ve taken time to step
back and admire your accomplished quilt.
If you have friends visiting in July, please bring them to the guild
meeting July 16th. This
is the Monday following the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show on the 14th. Our program is “Our Member’s Show and
Tell” with quilts or starts of quilts made during classes you’ve taken this
year, especially at Quilters’ Affair or Quilt Festival and others. It need not be a completed work,
but we’d love to see what you’ve done.
Our ‘Favorite Children’s Book’ challenge quilts will be presented for
your votes at this meeting too.
On a very important note, I really need your help with our own quilt
show. Everyone with as little as
one hour of time is urged to help.
You’ll have fun, meet members you don’t have a chance to have casual
conversation with and spend time with your guild friends. This show features some wonder-filled
quilts from Joanne M., Janelle R., and Kristin S. as well as your
quilts. Can’t wait to see them!
QUILT SHOW APPRENTICE(S) WANTED!
You may know from any of your trips to a quilt show that the event is
organized, fun and wonderful to attend.
For example, it sometimes takes 2 years in advance to prepare and
produce the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.
Our shows organization happens within a calendar year. It starts
with a member apprentice working with the quilt show chair to help prepare for
the event in the prior year and learn the tips and tricks for the following
As in one of my favorite Disney stories, The Sorcerer’s
Apprentice, it takes a lot of brooms and one wizard to pull this event
together. There is a detailed amount of history and procedure
available to anyone who can step up and take this on for next year. Past show chairs offer their experience
and support too. You may contact
me or any board member if you have questions about the duties and time involved
as well as consulting the Guild’s Standing Rules.
Next year’s show is a special anniversary, the 30th annual event. That doesn’t mean it’s any bigger or
harder to prepare, just that it’s a milestone. Would you please consider being this year’s apprentice and
next year’s show chair? Co-apprentices and co-chairs welcomed. Thank you for considering this
important and fun process.

off before the meeting.
2012 Quilt Challenge
K. and Janelle R.
The Mt Bachelor Quilters’ Guild Challenge Quilt Event promises to be a
really fun and interesting part of the July meeting and our Quilt Show in the
Park. Four different prizes will
be awarded for different categories at the September meeting following the
Challenge quilt entries are due on or before the July 16th guild
meeting date. Please bring your
quilt, including the book if possible, to the meeting in a brown paper
bag. Quilts will be logged in,
given a number, and displayed for voting by the membership at the meeting. The quilts will be returned to the
participants at the end of the meeting.
The Friday before our quilt show please bring your quilt to the designated
place for check-in. A viewer’s
choice judging will occur on the day of the show. Please retrieve the quilts at
the end of the show. Thank you for
your participation. Please call Sylvia or Janelle if you have questions.
2012 Raffle Quilt
Susan M. (submitted by Martha S.)
You’ll agree that we’ve had wonderful programs this year with renowned
speakers and have offered some fun and sometimes free workshops. The cost
of these is supported by your membership dues and the raffle quilt ticket
sales. Two things needed – your help during Quilters Affair at the
quilt shops in Bend/Redmond selling tickets and you’re encouraged to buy
your share of raffle tickets if you haven’t done so already.
Contact me via email (it’s in the roster). Thanks!

MBQG Presents the 2012 “Quilt Show in the Park”
Saturday August 18, 2012
10 am to 4 pm
Our featured quilters this year are Kristin S. and
Janelle R. I’m so excited to see their display of quilts. Look forward to
reading their bios in our August Newsletter. If you don’t know these ladies and
are unfamiliar with their work, you are in for a treat. Please help us to
support these women in their fascinating world of Quilting!
Quilt Show 2012 – ‘A Tribute to Joanne M.’, one of
our founders. It’s with great pleasure we share this opportunity to have such a
talented, hardworking dedicated member with us. Joanne will have many of her
quilts at our show. Didn’t she do a great job of wetting our appetite at our
Guild meeting a few weeks back? Don’t miss the article on Joanne written by
Kathleen G. (When I grow up
I want to be just like her!)
Be sure to read about the Boutique that’s been
added to our Quilt Show… Our members have been working very hard so let’s show
our support by telling friends and family members about this wonderful boutique
and by buying raffle tickets in support of their efforts. I know you must know
a young girl, a friend, a granddaughter, and a neighbor that would love to win
that doll bed hand crafted for an 18” doll! Let’s talk it up ladies!!!
miss out! Come have fun with your friends and fellow members at Pioneer Park
and let’s work together to put on a wonderful show…

Quilt entry forms will be available at the July
Guild meeting. Please fill out your ‘Entry Form’ at home before you arrive with
your quilts. This saves on time and confusion at check in. Please do
not pin the forms onto your quilts. Our pinning committee will take
care of that. If the forms are already attached, they will have to be removed
(time consuming) and re-attached (this can cause a messy, wrinkled and
sometimes torn form).
*Entry forms for quilts will be
available at the July meeting or on-site at collection.
Sales Table Collection
Have some sewing supplies, books, fabric or
anything else related to quilting that you’d like to sell? Have stuff laying
around that you just don’t use and don’t know what to do with? This is your
opportunity to clean out your closet and your sewing room. Bundle magazines,
bag up notions (zip lock), and box up that day lamp that just doesn’t fit on
your sewing table. Clean up your creative space, put a little change in your
pocket and support our guild!!!
*Instructions and a sales item
inventory form are posted on the Guild website. A few copies of this
information will be available at the July Guild meeting.

year, please contact Julia J. Don’t forget to mark your calendars, and
please ask your husbands to agree to help us with set-up and breakdown.
to Joanne M.- The Lucky Circle of Quilters has Joanne
Joanne’s life has been full of quilts. Her mother made and loved quilts and collected quilts from
both grandmothers and aunts –and so did she!
Like many of us, Joanne was intrigued with the “old treadle machine”
and enjoyed playing with this machine when her mother was not trying to
sew. She would crawl under Grandma
Butler’s quilt frame too. Scraps
were kept in a pillowcase and that was all it took to capture Joanne’s
imagination. From that bag, sprang
her ideas to create quilts. Joanne
was the oldest daughter in a family of seven all living in a 14 room house on a
big farm in Indiana. There were
rooms provided for the hired help who worked on the farm. The farm provided lots of hard work,
lots of fun and great memories, even during the Depression! Joanne won a 4H Club scholarship which
allowed her to attain a Home Economics degree at Purdue University. There she met her husband Horace. Together they raised four children,
lived on a small lake and kept busy the next 35 years with everyone’s
activities until they retired. Her
daughter and son-in-law had come to Oregon and told them that Bend “…looked
like a good place to retire”. So
they have been in Bend for 25 years – Horace has enjoyed golf and Joanne found
heaven for quilters!
Joanne has made many friends through quilting – Jean Wells of the
Stitchin’ Post and Jinny Beyer, designer/teacher, as well as the late Joyce
Coats of Mountain Country Mercantile.
During the 1970’s, tired of pastel and light colors, Joanne was
introduced to Jinny Beyer. From
there Joanne’s color pallet changed to working with darker and more vivid
colors. From her collection of
quilt books, Joanne “would tweak the traditional” and make something
different. Joanne relied on
her own creativity. For example, a
double wedding ring quilt class I took from her several years ago, Joanne
showed us an easier way to connect the rings! Joanne has created, designed and taught many of us. Her quilts have been published in
national magazines for all to see.
She is currently a member of the “Journeys” quilt group, whom we know
today is an amazing lady in her own right. She is never afraid to share her talents, stories and some
beautiful vintage quilts and coverlets too.
Are you attending the Mt Bachelor Quilt Guild show this year? If you are, we ask that you be an
ambassador of the quilt show and the guild by being available to answer
questions as you walk around the wonderful quilts. If you hear people asking questions or looking lost please
feel free to speak up and help them out.
This year we are handing out gloves so if people want to look more
closely at the quilts they will be free to do so! There will be volunteers roaming the grounds with the
gloves. All of us can be
ambassadors, not just those "on duty"! If you get a question that you are not able to answer please
direct people to the membership / challenge quilt / raffle quilt area for more
information. The quilt show is a
great opportunity to get people interested in joining our guild!
Thriving is a good description of our Boutique. It is doing well with lots of items for
sale. We can always use more and
we have one remaining sewing session for construction of items before our Quilt
Show. That sewing session is July
24th from 10:00 to 4:30pm at the Bend Park and Rec Community
Room. The address is 799 SW
Columbia Street near the Old Mill District. Come and spend time with us.
Some people prefer to create at home and we welcome that opportunity as
well. Some of the patterns for the
items are on the Web under Boutique.
For sale, we have baby receiving blankets, hot pads, needle cases,
individual block display stands, luggage tags, luggage handles, ID/passport/cell
phone holders, 18” doll clothes, thread catchers, little wallets, embroidered
tea towels, and pin cushions.
Please come and help us create more beautiful items for our Boutique. If you have questions, please call me,
Mary Ann B., at 541-312-9513 or e-mail me at email@example.com
Raffle for the 18” Doll Bed and Bedding- Karen Kimball and her father
have built a beautiful bed for an 18” doll plus a mattress, pillows, and a
quilt. It is any girl’s dream bed
for her doll. The cost is $1.00
for one ticket or $5.00 for six tickets.
A little girl in your life would love to use this bed for her doll. Plan on purchasing a few tickets at the
July meeting or at the Quilt Show on August 18th.

events before and after the show:

There are many wonderful
reasons to visit the Sisters Fiber Arts Stroll this year, not the least of
which is that four of our very own guild members (including yours truly!) are

Thank you to everyone who came to the June Community Quilts gathering.
We made a mess of the room with strips of many colors. It will be
fun to see the resulting quilts over the next several months.
Also, we send a big thank you to the 5 women who took home the
tops/batting/backing kits at our June meeting. We appreciate the help
with quilting these donated tops. We have more donated tops and will
plan to bring more "kits" to future meetings in the hope that other
members will help finish them.
The July Community Quilt session will be on July 18th--the Wednesday after
the Guild meeting. As usual, we will be at Nativity Lutheran Church at
the corner of Knott and Brosterhaus, starting at 11 and finishing by 2:30 or 3.
Bring your lunch and machine or handwork. Anytime, if you
have questions about what we do, or if you need backing material or batting,
please come on a Wednesday to the church or call/email one of us.
Finally, the Wednesday group will not be sewing at the church on July
4th due to the holiday.
Each month we appreciate the donations to the Food Pantry. On Tuesday, June 19th, 23
bags of groceries were distributed from the Food Pantry. This helps many people get through the
week. July items for the pantry
peaches and pears.
We accept any food or money donations. Thank you!
Our Guild Library
The raffle book for July is Prairie-Point
Pizzaz by Karen Sievert. This
book describes an innovative and easy technique for inserting prairie points
along with any half-square or quarter-square triangle in a quilt pattern to add
dimension. Tickets are $1 each/$5
for 6. The following books added
to the library were donated by members:
Weathered Vanes, A Folk Art Collection of Quilts and Hooked Rugs
by Laurene Sinema and Janet Carruth; Piecing, Expanding the Basics by
Ruth B. McDowell; The Crazy Quilt Handbook by Judith Montano; Rotary
Cutting Companion for Feathered Star Quilts by Marsh McCloskey; and Spools
and Tools Wallhanging by Wendy Gilbert. There will be a selection of library books to check out and
you may return books at the meeting.
Thank you for your support of the Guild library.
July- This month we will have
a video from the Mt Bachelor Quilters' Guild 2011 Quilt Show. Also, we
will have plenty of time for a large show and tell. Please bring your
finished works or works in progress from any class or retreat this year
including anything from the week of Quilters' Affair.
August- This month is our Quilt Show
in the Park. Please see the information in the newsletter about the
September- Cheryl Malkowski will be
here from Roseburg, Oregon. Cheryl has a background in floral design and
has written numerous books. Cheryl is also passionate about teaching and
there will also be a workshop, which you can find out more about in the
Workshop section of the newsletter.
Find out more about Cheryl at http://www.cherylmalkowski.com/
October- Wendy Hill and Pat Pease will
be here to present a program. Both are quilters from Central Oregon and
have a wealth of information to share with us.
There's still time to sign up for the
Twisted Ribbons workshop with Cheryl Malkowski on Monday, September 10 from 10
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Bend Park and Rec building. The cost for the full day workshop is $43. If interested, please send your check
to Lisa N (see the roster for address), or give your check to the treasurer at
the July meeting (Lisa N. will not be able to attend). This workshop features beautiful colors
that twist into a rainbow of sorts - it is really beautiful and Cheryl will
offer lots of piecing tricks. I think
you'll really enjoy this one!
If you feel a little color challenged or
just want to learn more about color, value, and composition to help your quilts
sing, the "Color and Design Play" workshop is just for you! Lead by Wendy Hill and Pat Pease from
Sunriver, you'll leave with a treasure trove of information - and you won't
have another UFO as this is a day to spend playing with colors and textures
through a series of challenges.
The price will be based on how many people sign up and will be
determined in July so if you think you might be interested, let Lisa N. know.
We were very sorry that Renee P. fell as she was leaving the June guild
meeting. We hope she is feeling
better now. If you have any news
among our guild members or previous members, such as births, weddings, illness
or passing, please contact Libby S. 541-330-8186 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a card
will be mailed on behalf of our Guild.
