Northland Stars January ’20 Newsletter

The Northland Quilters, Sewers, & Crafters have not missed a beat. It may have been the holidays but they were all off to an amazing start of the year. Why would we expect any thing any different from these amazing people? 

Before for we start we want to send out a A GET WELL SOON to Marguerite!!! We miss you and pray for your return. 

The first think we want to show you is how Natasha is doing. She is going beyond the borders of the earth and into the sea. All of this quilt is thread painted and she has entered it into  “The Gems of Competition” out of Oregon. The winner is to be announce January 15, 2020. 

Lauren has made several sets of flip and turn place mats for her family. Don’t you wish you were one of here family members?

Kay was getting a jump start on next years’ Christmas, or just finishing up a few stragglers like most of us. She has a Santa Sleigh Pillow and some Christmas pot holders today. So adorable. I hope I’m on her Christmas list next year. 

That Janet is at it again. She took left over yarn and knitted 🧶 it into a workable, stylish, beautiful winter scarf. Boy have we needed it lately? Way to go Janet. Talent beyond the stars. 

Debbie has been busy sewing clothes and charity quilts the beginning of the year. Her top pattern is an Ellie & Mae Pattern. As usual, her charity quilts are darling. 🧵💝

Terri quilted a very unusual lab quilt for her son for Christmas, “A Tiger” . It’s truly amazing. Then she brought her husband Charlie’s quilt of valor that he had just finished quilting. It takes your breath away. Great job Charlie and Terri, what team work….

Ilene brought her quilt for February’s class at at the Northland MoSew store. The Fractured Irish Chain. If you’re interested call Northland MoSew for more information. 

Mary saw a picture in a 1997 quilting magazine and was able to transpose that to her Accuquilt Dies. What talent and creativity. The quilt is gorgeous. Plus, accuquilt didn’t realize that the two dies she used went together. They actually called the North store about who made that quilt and where she got that idea and pattern. What else would Mary do but use the scraps she had left over to make a second quilt? You’re a great person to learn from and emulate. 

Rhonda had a busy holiday but it was not quilting. Her grandson was sick. Ahh…we hope he is better know. 🙂 However, she did make a smaller sized bag that pops open like a popcorn bag. It is darling. 

Leah finished her stained glass quilt. It Is like two quilts in one. 

We hope everyone stays warm during these cold and snowy days. But what better days to quilt so we can see you and your creations at the BUZZ in February? Remember, it’s the first Saturday of the Month. Hope to see you there. Until then…

Happy Quilting!
