Quilting on the Red Quilt Show 2011 1

The North Star Quilters Guild is pleased to invite you to our 2011 Quilting on the Red Quilt Show. The North Star Quilters Guild was founded in 1981 as an educational organization by a group of enthusiastic quilters whose skills ranged from beginner to expert. The purpose of the guild is to share ideas and knowledge about quilting, inspire enthusiasm and growth, develop skills, maintain ideas and standards, and promote interest in and appreciation of the world of quilting. This past year we began a new adventure with a very successful Educational Conference which featured local, regional and national instructors. This year we look forward to a wonderful quilt show, featured speakers, shopping at vendors from area quilt shops and most of all meeting and visiting with you. The quilt show will be open Saturday, October 15 from 9:00am-7:00pm and Sunday, October 16, from 9:00am4:00pm. Daily admission is $5.00. Children under 12 are free. Our venue this year is the Grand Forks Alerus Convention Center. We were thrilled with the facility at last year's education conference and are excited about its possibilities at this year's quilt show. We hope you agree and enjoy the show.

Meet Our Presenters Yvonne Hollenbeck

- South Dakota

Yvonne Hollenbeck is a Clearfield, South Dakota rancher's wife, and whenever she is not helping with the many duties that requires, she is busy making quilts or writing and performing poetry. She is not only from a long line of quilters, but her grandmothers were also poets, and Yvonne apparently inherited the two skills from them. Both hobbies have taken her to national levels, as her quilts have won local, state and national contests and her poetry has garnered her a spot on the largest cowboy poetry gatherings in the nation. Yvonne is currently the number one award-winning cowgirl poet in America and has published four books and numerous CDs involving her poetry, several of which are also award winners. Reflections of our lives occur as one sees the quilts made by loving hands at a time when there was no running water, electricity or modern conveniences that we enjoy today. All of the quilts were made on farms and ranches in Nebraska and South Dakota. Her poetry, mostly of a humorous nature, sheds light on today's little problems while being ever mindful of the hardships and big problems faced by the women of yesteryear.

Kate Eelkema -

Patchwork on the Prairie

By the end of the presentation, one will be able to see the progression of style, fabric and methods of quilting through the last one hundred fifty years.

Here Comes the Judge

Saturday, 3:00-4:00 pm

When you attend a quilt show, do you wonder why some quilts have ribbons and others do not? Do you hesitate to enter a quilt competition because you don't know what happens in that judging room? This is your chance to hear a nationally certified quilt judge explain what judges look for in the judging room, what it takes to make a blue ribbon quilt, and why it is important to enter quilt shows even if you don't win.

18. Non-Judged Entries are for display only and will not be judged.

What Next? Finishing School for Your Quilt

Saturday, 7:00­8:00 pm You have finished creating your quilt top--now what? Join Kate as she shares great tips and hints for the finishing "Bs" ­ Borders, Batting, Backing, Basting, and Binding.
