President's report

Greetings all!

With the improving weather comes gardening season, baseball season, and quilt show season! The AQS show in Lancaster is usually the first big show I get to every spring, followed by at least three or four others (Quilters Unlimited in northern VA; Quilt Odyssey in Hershey; PA National Quilt Extravaganza in Oaks) before the season ends again in late fall. Plus I aspire when possible to attend at least one or two local guild shows.

Of course, this spring is suffused with extra excitement and urgency due to York Quilters’ Guild’s upcoming Celebration of Quilts, happening May 20-21. With a huge gorgeous new venue at York College to fill with quilts, I’ve been triaging my UFOs, looking for the ones I can get finished for the show. My personality works best under deadline, so setting goals to finish some of my neglected ongoing projects in time to register them before April 24 has really lit a fire under my sewing chair.

From time to time I’ve heard quilters say, “I don’t enter my quilts in the show because I don’t want anyone judging me.” (Deep breath.) First of all, if you’re talking about the actual hired professional judges, that’s easy: register your quilt in category H1, “display only.” Your quilt will hang in the show but the judge will walk on by.

However, if you avoid entering quilts in the show because you think fellow guild members and general attendees will criticize it, PLEASE reconsider. The vast, vast majority of quilters and the larger quilt show audience are generous people who come to the show ready to be delighted. As a quilter, in fact, I sometimes enjoy viewing the quilts at the local guild shows more than the ones at the big national shows, because they tend to be more the type of quilts I actually aspire to make.

We live in a society where very few people have the skills and inclination to make a quilt: a physical object that expresses creativity with color, pattern, and texture, and can keep someone warm! If you are one of the select few who can list that achievement on your life’s resume, you deserve to be celebrated! Please share your quilts in the show. It will be the better for them.

I’ll be over here till May, sewing on binding.

See you at the meeting,
Sarah O’Sullivan

 Workshop:  Jelly Roll Race
 Teacher:  Sarah O’Sulllivan
 Workshop Length:  3 hrs.
 Registration Fee: $20
Description:  Do you love to buy those beautiful packs of precut 2.5” strips but then get stumped as to how to use them? Here’s a fun technique for a quick throw-sized quilt top that uses 40 width-of-fabric by 2.5” precut strips (one Jelly Roll, Bali Pop, Tonga Treat strip pack etc.) or just 40 assorted strips from your stash. The simplest version involves just the strips, but directions will also be included for easy variations in which squares or triangles are added. The fun of a Jelly Roll Race quilt lies not only in the unusual construction technique (ever sewn together a 1600” strip of fabric before?) but also in the surprise as to how it turns out, because you can’t plan which strips will end up together. Join me to enjoy a few hours of fabric play in a class that won’t send you home with a UFO. 

Project: Machine pieced throw-sized quilt top

Skill Level: All levels from beginner to advanced

Book 2 Quilt Challenge

The challenge is to create a quilt by interpreting a title of a book you have read. The book could be any type – children, cookbook, novel, car manual, etc. Use your creativity.
The challenge will be due at the Oct 2016 meeting.
Please bring the book, a picture of the book or at least the title of the book on a piece of paper to the October meeting so we can display your inspiration with your quilt.
Your quilt should be at least 20 inches on each size.
We will award prizes to the top three quilts selected by guild members.

Thread, needle, tension questions/answers (Follow up from February 2016 guild meeting

How can you tell a good metallic thread?

The way it drapes when hung in a “U” shape when you pull a length of thread from the spool/cone will indicate whether or not it is a good metallic thread. If it curls or kinks when unwound, it’s not a good metallic thread. If it hangs smoothly, that indicates that it is a good metallic thread. Inferior metallic threads can be successfully used in bobbins because the thread doesn’t pass through tensioner discs.

What’s the best “style” needle to use?
The best style needle to use is a “topstitch” needle. This needle has an extra-large elongated eye, a deeper groove in the shaft, and a sharp point. It is the most common needle type recommended by professionals and educators

What is mercerized thread?
Mercerizing is a process of treating cotton thread in a solution which causes the fibers to swell. It allows dye to penetrate the fibers better, increases luster, and strengthens the thread.

Why is Egyptian cotton thread better than other cotton threads?
It has an extra-long staple. The soil in Egypt produces great cotton with longer, stronger, better fibers. Everyone wants Egyptian cotton. Some labels can be deceptive, saying they are “Egyptian cotton, made in China”. This is not the same as Egyptian cotton grown in Egypt. Egypt cannot possibly grow all the cotton that is claimed as “Egytpian quality”.

How can you tell if top tension is too loose?
When you get looping on the back, it means that the top tension is too loose compared to the bobbin tension so, the bobbin thread is pulling too much top thread underneath. Tension is a “tug of war” between the top thread and the bobbin thread. Good tension is when both sides give in, allowing a good stitch without breaking or looping. Sometimes both top and bobbin threads need to be adjusted to create a good stitch. Don’t be afraid to adjust tension!

Which way should thread come off a spool/cone? (Straight wound VS cross wound)
Thread should always unwind in the same manner it was wound. Thread from a straight wound spool should come off the side of the spool, not from the top of the spool. So, a straight wound spool should sit on a vertical peg on your machine. Thread from a cross wound spool/cone should come off from the top of the cone/spool. A small cross wound spool can be placed on a horizontal peg on your machine but a larger cross wound cone should be placed on a sturdy thread stand placed behind your machine.

Fact or Fiction: You can only use cotton thread for quilting? Why? /Why not?
Fiction: The number one reason quilters are taught to use only cotton thread is tradition. The traditions, myths and rumors that polyester thread will tear the quilt are not true. Under extreme use, a strong polyester thread might but, so will a strong, glazed cotton thread. Under normal use, softer non-glazed threads will not tear through the fabric and it is perfectly fine to use any type of quality thread, except nylon which will discolor and get brittle over time.

Why is it better to have shorter color change lengths in variegated thread?
You can make a more accurate prediction of what color will appear in each place on your quilt. Precision dyed 1 -inch color change allows for more accuracy than does a random dye pattern.

YQG Trivia

February 1997, Guild member Sheila Arnold teased us with a program entitled “Strip Tease”
Because this is guild and not a gentlemen’s club, we knew this was about quilting. Sheila showed
us strip piecing techniques. She also had “show and tell” of items she had made. Today strip piecing
is a pretty well know way to quick piece a quilt and lots of fun.

Request for Donations

Hello Guild members,
Wow, it is March already and our Quilt Show is fast approaching. I hope some of you have been thinking about my request for donations for the “Raffle Table” at the quilt show. If you aren’t familiar with this portion of the show, it is where we display collections of items (new fabrics, notions, freshly made items sewn by our members, etc.) and visitors will purchase raffle tickets to place in bags next to the collections. The last day of the show, we will pull tickets to see who will win the items. I have been actively soliciting corporate donations but still ask that our members consider a donation of some sort. During your selection of any item(s) to donate, please remember that we want visitors to buy tickets for the items. So, ask yourself if you would want to win the item that you are donating. If you do, it will probably be a good selection and we will gladly accept the donation. The proceeds from our show go back to the guild to use for those wonderful programs that we have monthly as well as help pay for our meeting room and support our charitable contributions to the community so we need the show to be a success. If you know that you want to donate an item and just haven’t completed or purchased it yet, could you please let me know so that I know what may be coming our way. My email is or you can call my cell phone and leave a message if I don’t answer. Cell phone # is 717-309-1979.

Suggestions for donations:
Handmade items: Placemats, table runners, baby quilts, bags ( purses, totes), etc.
Purchased items: Rulers, rotary cutters, cutting mats, fat quarter collections, patterns, kits, batting, etc.

PS- Please don’t forget to sign up to help at the table during the show. We need volunteers.

Thank you in advance for any donations,
Anne King

February 2016 Meeting of the York Quilt Guild was called to order by President, TheSarah O’Sullivan at 7PM,

Sarah was pleased to announce that Nancy Spiese has volunteered to be our new Vice President and Mary Ellen Wical has volunteered to take over our newsletter. Thank you, ladies! We still need a program (chair) planning person.

We had two visitors at our meeting: Jackie Sutton and Joli Harrington.

Committee Announcements:

Paula Shamoian ( substituting for Evelyn Hunt) announced that our March program will be Laurene Bowers. She will speak about “Tiny Pieces to Modern Art Quilts.”
The March meeting will NOT be on the third Thursday of the month, which is Maundy Thursday. The Fifth Thursday, March 31, is our new meeting date. I repeat, THE NEXT MEETING OF YQG WILL BE ON MARCH 31!

Cindy Hodge asked everyone to sign up for jobs at our upcoming quilt show. There are boards with job listings on the back table. And we need many hands to set up and take down the show.

Paula Shamoian encouraged everyone to enter quilts. The deadline for entering quilts will be Apr. 24.

Ginny Lehr asked everyone who will be giving her items for the Consignment Table to get a number ahead of time. If you are giving items for “donation only,” please start setting those items aside at home.

Pat Matthews encouraged sewers to bring in patches made from your “crumbs.” These patches will be made into a quilt. Pat and her “barn quilters” will do a demo of how to make a crumb quilt at our show in May.

Celebration of Quilts now has a web site. Look at it and “like” it. Everyone should sell ads for our quilt show book. Anyone who you do business with is a potential person to sell ads to!

Danners will bring 6 long arms machines to our May show.

The Ways and Means Drawing was won by Cindy Hodge.
We had our usual marvelous items displayed in Show and Tell.

Cindy Hodge presented the program for the meeting. It was a movie on “Thread Therapy.” Due to technical difficulties, we were not able to view the entire movie, but it was an excellent. Cindy told us that it can be seen on our computers. It was sponsered by Superior Threads. For more info, see Cindy.

The meeting was adjourned after the movie.

Respectfully Submitted,
Linda Kenee
