      Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter

      Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***Tuesday, June 13th.***

      In case you've forgotten, this Sunday is Father's Day! Did you know the first Father's Day was observed on June 19th, 1910? Then in 1924, President Coolidge gave his support of a national day. It wasn't until 1966 though, that President Johnson signed a presidential decree, declaring the third Sunday of June as Father's Day. What constitutes as a father has changed over the years, but I think any man who makes a difference for the better, in your families life, should be honored. Stepfathers, uncles, brothers or a special friend, are all people to be considered. So take a minute, to honor all of the special men in your life, who have taken the time for you!

      The Survey Says...

      In last weeks letter, we had another one of our famous surveys. This is a great way to get to know our readers and it's wonderful, the way so many of you respond. Thanks to all who participated.

      Q: Would you rather create your own pattern and color combinations, or have a pattern to go by?

      The results are in and here is what we came up with. 1 in about 10 of you, make up your own pattern. Out of the 9 that use a pattern, half use their own colors rather than the suggested colors. Thanks again for your participation!

      Show & Tell

      Our first quilt, is a wonderful photo quilt, made by Cheryl H. for her in-laws 50th anniversary! What better way to capture all the years they've been together! I'm sure this beautiful quilt, will be a treasured gift forever and I certainly hope, it's not the last one you make! Thanks for sharing it with us Cheryl!

      This quilt is a special 50th anniversary quilt, that was made for my in-laws at the end of March. First I placed photos of family and friends in the middle of all the star blocks. Then I machine quilted in the ditch and stippled all the white diamonds, where the blocks came together. This is the first quilt of this size that I have finished and I was so happy that they loved it! Cheryl H.

      Our next quilt, is a fabulous keepsake quilt, that Ramona M. made for her husband, for Father's Day! I love the way she highlighted the details of her family into it! This will be a great quilt to start a, "passing on" tradition and I'm sure your husband absolutely loved it! Thanks for sharing it with us Ramona!

      I would like to share with you, a quilt that I made for my husband, for Father's Day last year. I call it "Angels Among Us". The center block was hand drawn, using two different pictures. One is a picture of my husband and me, the other was my son's school picture, from the year I started this quilt. (2003) Three corner squares have our first name on them and the year we were born. The last corner block, has our last name on it. The angels all have different colored hair and are appliquéed onto red and green, quarter square triangles. It was stitched in the ditch and free motion quilted, in the center square. The feathered hearts were quilted and then painted, to bring out the stitches. Thanks for letting me share a quilt I'm proud to have done, for that special man in my life. Enjoy!!! Ramona M.

      Upcoming Events

      Alaskan Quilting Cruise Update

      I'd like to thank Round Bobbin for inviting me to teach on their 4th annual cruise, this latest one to Alaska.

      A special thanks to Judy and Cindy at Round Bobbin for asking me to be part of this beautiful, wonderful time.

      Our first stop was Hubbard Glacier. We came within 300 yds of the glacier. Absolutely Fantastic! The calving was spectacular. Our group picture was taken in front of this magnificent glacier.

      The next stop was Juneau where we visited the local quilt shop, Changing Tides. What a fantastic shop, Jan Mardone, the owner, has done a wonderful job. Lots of great Alaskan themed prints had to be aquired, and all of our quilters were generously rewarded with a goodie bag from her shop.

      Then on to Sitka, another day of unseasonably warm sunny weather. There we visited Quilt Works, the local quilt shop where we found specially designed Sitka fabric. I met a local designer, Lisa Moore, a very talented lady who has a beautiful pattern line. Jill Scheidt, the owner of this shop, along with Lisa designed the Sitka fabric.

      Ketchikan was our last Alaskan stop, where we found a jewel of a quilt shop, The Silver Thimble. Chock full of Alaskan themed fabrics, this was the final stop that made the seams burst in my suitcase! The owner, Betty Gale, was gracious and friendly.

      Our last stop was in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, where we spent the evening blessed with more sunny weather.

      Our quilt classes onboard were held during our at sea days, quilters came from all over, a most interesting group. They were kept them busy with a variety of classes as well as hands on projects.

      The ship was beautiful, entertainment was fantastic, and of course the food was great, but that goes without saying. A lot of new friendships were created.

      A special thanks to our dinner companions, the ladies at table 135 for making our trip more fun; Trish, Pat, Charlie, and Judy.
