Quilt Show Cancelled for March



To all our members of the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild and Quilt Enthusiasts:
We have all worked so very hard to bring the 2020 Festival of Quilts to our community on March 28/29, and for this we commend all for their tireless efforts.
However, due to circumstances regarding the coronavirus and heeding the CDC’s recommendations of social distancing, we have decided that it is best for all involved to postpone the show to a future date. Keeping our members safe and healthy is our main concern, and while our show is a thing of beauty, gathering people from all over the Northeast in an enclosed location is a risk that we feel is best to avoid.
We are also cancelling our March 17 meeting, as well as our March 23 Board Meeting. Specifically, the RRMC has suspended all non-hospital meetings in their Leahy Center conference rooms.
There will be a phone call tree set up to contact those members without email access, but if you know of someone, please give them a call and inform them of these decisions.
We hope you all understand our reasoning for these difficult decisions and also hope we all stay healthy in these next few weeks.

Next comes April

Erin Underwood Trunk Show

From Then to Now
Starting from as far back as I can go, I will show you a fun and inspiring collection of my quilts, including the
GOOD, the BAD, and the IF I ONLY KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING quilts. As a quilt-a-holic who plans to
never recover, I thrive on absorbing all I can about quilting and sharing techniques, tips and tricks with
others. Since I have tried a little bit of everything from hand-applique to machine embellishment, paper-piecing
to crazy quilting, large and traditional to small and artsy, you just never know what I’ll get into next.
Share my journey as I show you that no matter your likes, styles or experience, quilting has something to
offer everyone. After the lecture, the audience is encouraged to get up-close and personal with my
quilts. Fondling is permitted.

Don't forget your Block of the month, Fat Quarter, and Show and Tell

**Wednesday,Workshop April 22**

WORKSHOP: Fantastic Fans
Learn this easy piecing technique using Erin
Underwood’s 15-Degree Triangle Ruler by Creative
Grids. It does all the work for you. If you can sew a straight seam, you can make this easy version
of a curved block. Then you are only limited by your imagination! Several options of patterns and
pattern combinations (more than one pattern for the workshop) are available — just take a look at
the Fantastic Fans patterns in my online store: www.erinunderwoodquilts.com. You can choose
from Optical Illusion, Chinese Fans, Triple Dresden Tree Skirt, Stacked Fans or Phat Kats. The cost
for the class is $50, which includes the specialized pattern and ruler.

The Maple Leaf Quilters meet  at Christ the King Church Parish Hall.

 Doors open 6:30 PM for check-in and refreshments; meeting begins 7 PM 

66 South Main St. (Rte 7), Rutland, VT.
