HMQS 2009 Machine Quilting & Fabric Challenge Sponsor

SewBatik

In keeping with the aspiration to have a charitable purpose benefit from HMQS, the show theme was inspired by our desire to dig a well for our sisters in the Kwoyo Kochia village in Kenya. Our hearts are drawn out to them, and it would make a life-saving difference to have clean, potable water from a new well!

The supply of clean water from the new well will be a healthy source for an entire village and your contributions are sincerely appreciated. If you would like to make a contribution for the well before HMQS 2009, donations may be made with cash, check or money order and mailed to Ann Collet, 869 East 725 South, Centerville, UT 84014. 100% of the donations will go directly to digging the well. Help us pump up the donations!

Special Quilt Exhibit!

his unique exhibit will feature traveling quilt exhibits from the United States including the “God Bless America” patriotic quilt display, select guild exhibits and the exciting, new HMQS 2009 Machine Quilting & Fabric Challenge sponsored by SewBatik.

This challenge sponsored by SewBatik, with batting sponsored by Quilt Batting Plus by Air Lite, will showcase the quilting of the Maple Mountain Quilters Guild of Mapleton, Utah. It's always fun and exciting to see the handiwork from other quilt guilds. Their challenge is to machine quilt a small wall hanging.

The challenge will feature the gorgeous Nuance Purple fabric from SewBatik. The 1st place winner will receive $150 and a 3-yard backing from SewBatik, 2nd place will receive a 3-yard backing and 3rd place will receive a 2-yard backing, courtesy of SewBatik.

Traveling quilt exhibit comes to HMQS 2009!

Sponsored by Buckboard Quilts, 50 quilts will be part of the patriotic quilt display.

“God Bless America” Quilt Exhibit

his special exhibit, sponsored by Buckboard Quilts, is comprised of 50 traditional and pictorial quilts, which capture the essence of "America the Beautiful" by paying tribute to American heroes, U.S. troops and Presidents. These works of quilted art are beautiful depictions of "Liberty and Justice for All," and express the flag-waving loyalty of those who created them.

The 50 quilts on display are part of a collection gathered by Judy Howard, award-winning author and owner of Buckboard Quilts. All profits from the exhibit will go to providing quilts for wounded soldiers and victims of disasters. The public is invited to view the “God Bless America” exhibit free with their HMQS show admission.

For a sneak peek of the quilts visit www.HeavenlyPatchwork.com.

Most of all I love the art of quilting and the closeness it fosters in all of us. Serving as a judge is an honor and a privilege and I thank each entrant for sharing their work for others to enjoy.”

juditha@ymail.com

Judy is a native of upstate New York, near the tip of a Lake Ontario. Her love of quilting started in 1983 and was expanded in 1991 with the purchase of a longarm quilting machine. As a representative for APQS, Judy started traveling for the company and as her talents grew, she became a pattern designer for Golden Threads, focusing her attention on creating very elegant feather designs. Her unique style of designing and teaching her techniques has led her to the American Quilter's Society and to author of the book, "The Art of Feather Quilting". By creating your own feather designs, the student learns to not only quilt them better, but to be very unique in their own style of placement and pattern usage. Judy’s style and techniques gives the quilter an even higher standard of professional machine quilting. Judy is also a contributor for Digitech, a company that offers patterns for the computerized quilting machine. She delights in traveling and teaching both for feather designing and longarm machine training, whether it be for the hand quilters, the home sewing machine users or the professional longarm machine quilters.

pbuhler2@earthlink.net

Patti finds it amusing that when she married her husband 12 years ago she told him, "I know how to sew, but don't expect me to do any!" Better machines, way cooler thread, embroidery and now longarming has led her to a stage where the sewing machine is never put away and multiplied to include an embroidery machine, serger, longarm, and several "extra" sewing machines.

"She’s always been a teacher,” Patti says, since she started teaching her dolls at age 3. She taught in public schools for several years, and has a degree in Elementary Education and a Master's in Technology in Education. Her husband refers to her love for taking sewing classes as "getting her PHD in sewing.” Patti began teaching nationally at Machine Quilters Exposition in 2007 and teaches locally at And Sew Bee It in Kearney, MO.

With her husband and 8 kids, she has lived in Oklahoma, Utah, California, Korea, Malaysia, Hawaii, and now Kansas.

Judy says, “I became interested in making a quilt for my son James, who would lie on the floor pouring over animal books. The quilt was self-designed and heavily pieced with birds and animals peeking out from the leaves of the trees in the rainforest. When it came time to ‘quilt’ it, I knew it had to be something special. So I got out the animal book and drew a forest of leaves and creatures for my friend Angela to do on her long-arm machine. It was everything I hoped it would be! That is what I have loved doing ever since.”

226 Hooked On Feathers 2 Hour, Lecture/Demo, $45 includes handout fee ($5), LA

Thurs., May 7, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Feathers are loved, adored, and give customers a feeling of pride and you great satisfaction when they receive their quilt covered in exquisite feathering. They are every quilter’s goal to stitch with flawless accuracy. Custom feathers can boost your profit level, setting you apart from your competition. Maybe you feel that you have not conquered feathers as you should. Because feathers take time to mark and draft corners, and they often look graceless when free-motioned, many of you will give up on feathers.Take heart, we have all been there. This feathering technique changes all that.

There is absolutely no backtracking and no marking, making this clever new Hooked On Feathers technique simple to master. These feathers actually stitch better free-motion. Sally shows you how to stitch in and out of tight curves, around corners, in sashings and blocks, determine thread path, direction and flow, spine, starting and ending designs, edgeto-edge and meander. Plus see how long feathers can be without losing their graceful shape. Sally will demonstrate the valuable technique of filling large awkward shapes created by the piecing patterns. Watch as Sally uses the feather stencils and templates you already have with amazingly beautiful results. Don’t overlook this bread and butter technique that will definitely raise your quilting to a higher level. Feather quilts in half the time means greater profitability. In fact, beginners do as well as the pros, so all levels of quilters will enjoy and get hooked on feathers all over again. NEW workbook, handouts, patterns, sample quilt layout, sample quilt drawing, door prizes.

Student Supply List: Lap board, your favorite drawing pencil, eraser. Handout fee includes NEW workbook, handouts, patterns, sampler quilt layout.

oe Cunningham began making quilts professionally in 1979, after a ten-year career as a musician in Michigan. His early mentors were steeped in the history and traditions of quilts, leading Cunningham to a life of study in quilt history and a love of traditional technique. Over the years his work has evolved into a unique personal style, both original and shaped by the tradition. His work has been widely exhibited. Cunningham’s eight books on quiltmaking include the first biography of a living quilter and a definitive book on marking quilts for quilting called “Quilting with Style,” published by AQS. He has been seen on the HGTV series “Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson” and on “The Quilt Show” with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims.

Cunningham has two DVDs out recently:“Joe the Quilter,”a documentary of his musical quilt show and “Basting and Quilting in an Old Fashioned Frame.” He continues to perform his musical quilt show,“Joe the Quilter,” for guilds and theaters nationwide. HMQS is thrilled that 2009 Awards Night attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy this first-class entertainer!
