I'm binge-watching The Final Stitch with Natalie (from Missouri Star Quilts) on YouTube. Lots of interesting info I didn't know (or had forgotten.) It's like attending my own personal quilt retreat! So much fun!

What are you doing today?

Hello fellow quilters,
A World of Quilts XLI is a judged show which will feature more than 175 quilts in addition to two special exhibits and 18 vendors. I am the bus/group coordinator for our show this year. Please contact me at [email protected] if you are interested in pre-registering a bus/group of 10 or more at a discounted admission cost/person.
And, we'd appreciate it if you could spread the word!
Hoping to see you at the show!

You know how you fall down a rabbit hole trying to find a specific pattern? Well, it turns out the book I was looking for was right in our very own Guild Library! How cool is that! Thanks Linda for making it so easy! Check out our list of books and DVDs available on the library page (members only) of our website.
This past Saturday, I attended an online workshop by Brita Nelson (the Questioning Quilter) sponsored by our guild. Wow, what a great day! We worked on disappearing- 4 patch, hourglass and 9 patch blocks. She was clear and concise in all her directions, and patient beyond words. At one point, I think she had three groups going with multiple screens so we could all see the block we were working on. It was awesome!

Thanks to , Brita Nelson, for an entertaining and enlightening class. It was great!

Thanks also to the board members who prepare our programs - dynamite job, as always!

I've included some of the 'disappearing' blocks I made. I can't wait to make more!

P.S. If you were in the class, please share your photos!
Here's wishing all of us an amazingly successful 20th Anniv. Fence Show.
Join us this Saturday, October 23rd, for our Outdoor Quilt Exhibit & Auction at Mineola Middle School. Scavenger hunt for kids. See details below!
Veronica Flyntz Medina, I want to make the group aware that there are 2 Evening Star Quilters groups on FB.
How cool is this?! ESQ received a great thank you note from Ronald McDonald himself for our most recent donation of 26 quilts to Ronald McDonald House!

"...your members lovingly and diligently work on quilts to comfort those who need this the most.... On behalf of my children and their families, I thank you and your ESQ members from the bottom of my heart! Thanks to your sincere wishes and support. You make life nicer for my precious children and their families and friends!!!
"Please know how much we appreciate your efforts, kindness, giving and good work!
RM!!!"
I'm working on my 20 x 20 quilt. Very Halloween-y. Cats, and bats, and pumpkins - oh my! Anyone else?
We're grateful to Stephanie Kollar and the talented Evening Star Quilters NY for their generous donation of hand-made quilted blankets for Child Life at Cohen Children's Medical Center. Thank you for supporting Northwell Health!

Super proud of our members who continue to make pet beds for Last Hope Animal Rescue. Another 24 quilted beds were delivered in August. Sharing the love!

One of our members grabbed some scraps to go with this panel. She whipped this up in no time, and then gave it back as a donation. Another member stepped right up to do the long-arm quilting. I am proud to be a member of the same guild as these two talented and generous ladies. Thank you Ronnie & Maryellen. You both totally rock!

Mary Schuellein and her husband, Donald, visited the Last Hope Animal Rescue and presented the Outreach Coordinator, Joanne Anderson, with 36 pet beds made by our members. Millie and Betty, two of the sweet dogs waiting for forever homes, enjoyed sniffing and sitting on the pet beds. They were so excited! That very weekend some of the smaller pet beds went home with a few kittens that were adopted. https://lasthopeanimalrescue.org/

Our Plenty of Twenty's Outdoor Exhibit was held at Mineola Middle School on October 23rd in honor of our 20th year. A Mustangs quilt was especially made for the occasion, and Dr. Michael Nagler, Superintendent of Mineola Public Schools, came to the show to receive it on behalf of the school and the Mineola Mustangs. Dr. Nagler is well-acquainted with the time and skill that go into hand-crafted items and was very appreciative of the work presented in the show and the Mustangs quilt in particular. We are grateful to Dr. Nagler for taking the time to meet our members and for graciously sharing the school grounds for our show.

Our “Plenty of Twenties” Outdoor Exhibit was SO successful. The quilts were wonderful and really showed off the quilting talents of our members. It was a chilly but fun day!

Happy Hanukkah!

11/28/2021

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! What are you working on?

I'm just getting started on my blocks for the Sew by Row Focus Group. (I know, if it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would happen.)

Still want to join us? No problem! Send Mary or Maryellen an email to get your Zoom invitation. It's not too late! We're working at our own pace, so you can catch up.

I also have to get my raffle money in to Cathy. I can't decide which basket to select - maybe I will select a few and increase my odds. Sooo many cool things. You can see the item descriptions in the recent newsletter.

See you at the general meeting on Thursday!

We've been having our regular meetings via Zoom, but we've also been meeting up in person at Eisenhower Park which has been so much fun! Members were able to browse for a new book or buy some raffle tickets for the beautiful baskets Cathy has assembled, or shop at Maryellen and Christine’s Pop-Up store. We've had several fantastic Show ‘n Tells too. It's been just so nice to be able to get together. Here are some photos from our August 26th picnic.
