May Saturday Sampler

It's May and we had snow today!!! Lots of wet, wet, wet snow. The trees were gorgeous. If flooding wasn't such an issue we could be thankful as everything is going to be green, green green.

Our blocks are very pretty this month. First the victorian color way. . .

And the watermelon colors . . .

And Celebrate Life.

Have an enjoyable time stitching, all the blocks are quite easy and it is fun watching the quilt develop. Here's looking forward to warmer (and drier) weather! Hope to see you soon.

Calling All Quilters

All of you who have made beatiful quilts and shared them with us at Valley Fabric, it's time to share them with others. "Quilting on the Green" is a great local opportunity to learn new skills, earn a little $$$ for showing your quilts, and having a lovely time with other quilters. Please think about entering your quilts. The event takes place at the Expedition Island Pavilion in Green River, Wy. from June 2- June 4, 2011.

Information is available at Valley Fabric Shop, quilts must be registered by May 27, and then you might be on your way to cash prizes, a new sewing machine, and other goodies. IT is a fun weekend and promotes quilting in our area. Spend a little time attending the show, enjoying the vendors, and taking some classes. Please support those who have worked so hard to provide this opportunity.
