Miller and John Bunge
Welcome to all new subscribers who signed up during our recent tour!
This is a quick newsletter this time - John and I are heading off to the Quilting in the Badlands festival in Drumheller tomorrow morning. We've been home for 2 weeks from our trip, and it's been very busy to get home after 3 1/2 months!
The news this month is mostly about Canada's new anti-spam law. I'm sure you Canadians have been getting deluged by emails asking you to confirm your subscription to various and sundry "notifications".
I am not going to do this, because I have kept all the newsletter signup sheets where you gave me your information. More about this below.
I hope you're having a great month (be it summer or winter), and getting lots of quilting done! I'm happily back at my sewing machine, trying to write up the last of the Block of the Month patterns, and getting hooked back into some quilting for myself.
If this is the first newsletter from me you've seen, welcome! I post them here on the website once a month or so, when there's something I think you'll be interested in. You can sign up for email notifications of new newsletters by sending me an email with "Subscribe" in the header. If you'd like to follow our doings more often, join my Facebook "fan" page (link at the left) or the blog (where I often write about our travels).
If you would like to be removed from the email list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line.
I taught LOT of classes during this last tour - here are some of the results.
From Wellsboro NH - what they
had to show after a full-day HAND MOLA class!
From Plaistow NH on a
beautiful spring day - very cool Mock Mola designs.
Susan sent a picture of her
completed quilt a few days later.
From Sarnia Ontario - full
class of very enthusiastic, fast and creative quilters!
From the Proper Bostonian
Quilt Guild - wow! some great designs!
My friend Wenche took the
Mock Mola and Notan classes on the Holland America cruise last
I wrote the outline for a
book about Mock Mola quilts during our drive, thinking this will be my
next big endeavour.

What I'm Working On
I'm home again, with my sewing machine. YAY!
I've started back writing more patterns for the Star and Plume Block of the Month project. Here are a couple of them: Wheel of Fortune and Altar Steps. The blocks are getting more challenging, as we approach the final 6 months of the block of the month.
During the tour I finished the top of my newest hexagon quilt, which is a large snowflake. I appliquéd it onto the border fabric, and now have started quilting it by machine. It should be done soon after we get back from Drumheller.
Here is how my little 3/8" hexies look at the end of the tour - it is my current "grab and go" project.
July 4 DRUMHELLER AB Quilting in the Badlands festival www.quiltinginthebadlands.org

Sept 15 CORNWALL ON
Cornwall Quilters Guild (evening concert)
November 4 NEEPAWA Manitoba (evening concert)
