Seeing this picture, from Bing Images, made me think of a possible quilt project. Maybe not as big but same idea. Anyway, went outside today to check on the daffodils AND there is one green half inch sprout! Hope does SPRING eternal! The down side of the snow melting is, we can now see that the granite post really is broken and not just leaning…sigh.
The MQX Quilt Show is this week…just click on this to find more info. Also for more information on quilt shows in NH here is that info..NH SHOWS.

Don’t let the math scare you…if I can do it ANYONE can! BIAS TUBE TIPS
I forgot to mention at last Saturdays meeting that in May we’ll have a pot luck lunch to celebrate Spring! Kind of our reward for putting up with this Winter. A special thank you to all of you who have provided the pantry with coffee, paper products, etc. We’re way ahead of the coffee/paper game so when things start to run out I’ll send out an SOS…or a CAPP (coffee and paper please). Now on to see the talent in our Happy Scrapper group.
SHOW AND TELL
Bonnie with a feathered star…the dark fabric has an iridescent glow.

Annick showed her challenge “quilt”. She made a dictionary (an actual book). Letters, from selvages, was used for the words. Very clever!!
This is a very striking quilt in green, blue and black by Paula. This quilt will go to a charity.
This quilt is made for Paula’s sister-in-law who is a graphic designer. A beautiful modern quilt that was totally out of the box for Paula.
Tommi made this quilt top for a graduate from New Life. Reds and golds were the young woman’s colors and the black really sets it off beautifully.
Another quilt by Tommi that will be donated to raise money for Altzheimers.
Don’t forget, open studio is on Thursday, April 16 from 10 AM to ? If we run out of studio room there is always the dining room table, kitchen table and sunporch for hand work.
*Anne H. shared an article about her author husband Richard, that was published in the Hooksett Banner. His photo was on the front cover. With Anne’s help Richard wrote up the history of the Palace Theatre in Manchester. On June 25 there will be a 60’s show and the quilt she made will be raffled off then. Money all goes to the NHHH Prostate Cancer Coalition. Made In New Hampshire show is on April 17, 18 and 19 at the Raddison (Center of NH).
