Now, Quilt County IS in full swing. A vast variety of venues abound throughout Benton County. The Benton County Historical Museum hosts "Modern Materials – Quilts of the 70’s", JanniLou Creations hosts exhibits in the Philomath branch of Citizen’s Bank – Quilts of Valor (plus a couple of other patriotic quilts), and Eats & Treats’ "Eats & Treats"…as well as featuring an Oh My Stars Exhibit within the walls of our dear Old Waucomah Theatre from mid-August through our 22nd anniversary mid-October. Pick up a brochure to guide you on your adventure through the many venues. As a special part of Quilt County, you’ll find us at the second Scout Lodge and More Show to be held at the Scout Lodge on September 11th-13th. The coordinators of this new venue have worked very hard to bring you one more presentation of quilts from local artists. We are so blessed!Within the pages of this From the Cutting Room Floor, you will find fresh inspiration for the expression of your own fiber arts – whether it be traditional piecing and applique, traditional with the twist of paper piecing techniques, new techniques with new or familiar tools – we look forward to sharing a Fall season of productive fun and adventure in quilting.Jan & Shirley Scott team up to present a myriad of paper piecing classes. Absolutely Beginning Paper Piecing, and/or theTechniques series offerings are a really perfect way to learn Judy Niemeyer’s paper piecing technique. All of us addicted to the Judy Niemeyer method of paper piecing have been watching the progress of our students’ projects as their renderings of Glacier Star and Mariner’s Compass, Paradise in Blooms and other wonderful patterns blossom into quilt tops extraordinaire. You, too, can create your own version. There’s no going wrong with any fabric choice you might decide upon. We love to provide Blocks of the Month opportunities for many of the Judy Niemeyer patterns in your color palette. Just ask!
