Dear PTQG Quilters,

Well, I hope you are all surviving this blustery winter weather we are having this year. It’s been tough on everyone for sure, and it makes for a long winter season. One might say it is good sewing weather but when the power goes off, it’s not so much anymore.

As you will read in the newsletter Callie Lavoie, our Maine Quilts coordinator, is resigning after this year’s show. I have enjoyed working with Callie immensely. She’s a great person to work with and she’ll be missed by all of us, but especially those of us who have worked with her on the quilt show.

It’s been quiet for me—but I am resuming my quest to finish some old projects that got left aside as I worked on Christmas gifts. I finished my 110 squares of the “Farmer’s Wife” project this week. Now, assembling the squares is my next step. I’ll be using some of my gift certificates to get sashing and fabric for my off-setting triangles to finish it. This is the precursor for my “Dear Jane” quilt in the future. But I need a break first.

Hope all of your projects are coming along well.

Jackie Bussière
