Guild Meeting: Monday, September 12, 2016
Speaker: Yvonne Hollenbeck
Program: Patchwork of the Prairie

Yvonne's program entitled "Patchwork of the Prairie" is one of the finest presentations in the heartland. Yvonne shows her collection of family quilts, spanning 140 years, including her own prize-winning creations. Poetry about quilts and quilters is presented throughout this awesome trunk show, which is enjoyed by men and women alike.

In addition to numerous awards as an Author and a Poet, she also won Better Homes and Garden's Home Sweet Home Contest in 1989. "Sundown on a Century" was displayed by Better Homes and Gardens at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, the largest quilt show in the world! "Springtime in Dakota" made as a wedding quilt for Yvonne's daughter won every contest ever entered and also won Better Homes and Gardens' Home Sweet Home contest and displayed in Houston with their collection!

A three-generations-old family ranch is home to Yvonne and her husband, Glen. Together they raise Angus beef cattle and quarter horses. More specifically, they live 30 miles from Winner, South Dakota, and 50 miles from Valentine, Nebraska, the closest towns with a post office, fire department and grocery store.

Class: Orphan Block Calendar
Instructor: Yvonne Hollenbeck
Date: Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Customize a calendar with a quilt block and treasured photo – beautiful!! Every quilter has a few "orphan" blocks left after a project. Yvonne Hollenbeck devised an ingenious way to use hers – a photo calendar holder. This quick and easy project can dress up nearly any size calendar, just adjust the holder size to match your calendar, and select coordinating fabrics and block to suit your décor. The finished calendar shown measures about 12 1/2" across x 23 inches high. Pattern provided.
