JUNE PROGRAM AND WORKSHOP
Phyllis Prom will be our featured speaker for June. Her
trunk show of art quilts will walk us through the evolution of
creating a work of art from fabric. Phyllis has had her
works shown at major quilt shows throughout the US,
including Paducah, KY. She has been teaching her
methods for many years in the Eugene area. Phyllis has
developed some interesting ways to create illusions that
are her very own. Come to the meeting for her fun and
inspiring program and then take her class on Friday.
You’ll be working outside the box and exercising your
creative muscles.
Her workshop on Friday will include a kit of materials that
you will need to make your project; the cost of the kit is
included in the price for the workshop. Phyllis is preparing
the kits now so don't postpone signing up this month.

Exciting New Quilt Show
Sponsored Ribbons!
This year the Quilt Show Co-chairs are encouraging
members and others to sponsor their "own special
award" at the Quilt Show. These Sponsored Ribbons
will be in addition to our regular categories. Members
and non-members can create their own category or
theme award and then choose the quilt that wins this
award (not your own or a family member).
The cost to create an award is $10 for members and
$15 for nonmembers, which includes one day of
admission to our 2011 Quilts by the Sea. The sponsors
will select their winner after the hanging on Thurs, Aug
4, or Friday, Aug 5th, 9 am till 12pm. Some ideas for
categories are, Best Children's Quilt, Best Patriotic,
Best Use of Batik, Best Use of Red, Pure Joy, Best
Border, So far we have these awards: Twinkle, You
Made Me Say WOW, “A Look Back”, 30’s fabric.
The deadline for these awards will be the June
meeting so we will have time to prepare your special
award ribbon. Let's make this a really fun addition at
our show. Please stop by the Quilt Show table at the
next meeting or contact one of the show chairmen to
create "your special award". See Jane Szabo for any
questions or to create your award.
SMALL QUILT AUCTION FOR
THE 2011 QUILT SHOW
We are once again asking for small quilts donation by
OCQG members for the fundraiser silent auction at our
Quilt Show. Half of the proceeds will go to the charity
that we’ll choose in a special drawing and half will go to
our guild. We want quilts that represent your very best
work so that bidders will say, “I want that quilt!”
The quilts must have a total perimeter of no more than
120 inches. They can be any style, embellished or not,
hand or machine quilted (no tied quilts). You must put
on a hanging sleeve and label. The turn in date for the
quilts is the JULY meeting.
Any questions please contact Karen Oetjen or Paulette
Stenberg.
2. Make some inside signs for the Quilt Show for new
categories and directing people to back gym,etc.
3. Plan and set up OCQG table and display for the Show
which would include community quilts, workshops,
activities, and membership. Other volunteers will
man this at the Show.
4. Helping to make more wood bases for the hanging poles.
This is probably our husbands or sons, HELP
please!!
Many hands make light work. Please contact Jane Szabo to
help.
QUILT SHOW GRAB BAGS
There will be a box at the meetings from now till
the quilt show to collect any small items for the
quilt show grab bags. Please
check your closets and bring items
that are lying around that are no
longer needed.
OCQG MERCHANDISE
CHALLENGE QUILT TURN IN INSTRUCTIONS
All new guild merchandise is
available at every general
meeting. A new specialty item
is a fleece jacket in a variety of
colors with the ship embroidered
on the left crest. The jackets
are $40-$45 and can be
preordered through June.
...Please tell us by the May Guild meeting, May 12,
2011, that you will be entering your quilt in the
challenge. It would be best to e-mail or call (Kathy or
Sarah) - there will be a list at the May meeting, but we
still would prefer an e-mail or phone call.
...Add the 4" hanging sleeve - directions are on the
guild’s web site.
...Fill out the quilt show insurance waiver form. Add
"2011 Perfect Block Challenge" after your quilt name on
the label and receipt form. Attach the label to the back
of your quilt as per the entry instructions. Besides the
paper label, it’s a good idea to have your name on a
separate label that you sew onto your quilt back. Do not
put your name on the front of the quilt!
...Attach a 3X5 card with your quilt name and/or block
name to the front.
...Bring your quilt to the June
Guild meeting in a plain bag.
Also include in the bag 3
separate 2"X6" strips of fabric
you have used in your quilt. If
you are unable to attend the
June meeting, please make
arrangements to have
someone else bring it for you or call us to make
arrangements. I will sign your receipt when you turn in
your quilt - and you will need to show the receipt when
you pick up your quilt after the show.
...The quilts will be judged at both the June and July
meetings by members of the Guild.

LIBRARY CORNER
A guild member suggested
we purchase the book
Mystery Quilts by Rita Fishel,
and we did. It features
instructions for 15 quilts in the format of mystery quilts: the
first half of the book explains the basic fabric requirements
and color/value needs and clues for each quilt. The
second half features further fabric and batting needs and
pictures a completed version of each quilt.

So, if you are a beginning quilter or are looking for quick
projects, do investigate this book. If you want to have a
mystery quilt party for friends or relatives, this book is for
you.
PLEASE NOTE:
Since mystery quilt events often include food, the author
has included several easy proven tasty dishes, which will
fuel the excitement of creation.
Fons & Porter are offering new subscriptions and renewals at
$15.00 each. Sign up will be at the membership table and the
checks need to be made out to me.

HOBO QUILTS by Debra G. Henninger
This is a great fun book that brings back many memories
for me. Did you ever see marks on your grandparent’s
house or fence? My grandparents lived in-between 3 sets
of railroad tracks. I did see the markings on the fence, and
waved to many hobos as they went by on the trains.
When I first saw this book, I was excited to see that
someone had written this history down.
In this book, you see the secret language of the hobos
made into a quilt. Anne and I thought that this would be a
great book for our library; we love the history.
Pam Werth
If you know you will not be able to finish your block
please call me at 541-563-5509 and I will be
happy to pick it up or send it to me by mail at

Japanese-Style Party Mix
(courtesy of Judy McCoy)
Adapted from “Steve’s Often Copied, Never-Duplicated, Furikake Chex
Mix”
http://www.food.com/recipe/steves-often-copied-never-duplicatedfurikake-chex-mix-360282
This is a sweet and savory variation of a very rich party mix. The added
Japanese flavors are soy sauce, Japanese rice crackers, and furikake.
Furikake is a dry mixture of various ingredients usually sprinkled over
hot rice or used to embellish dishes such as seared ahi tuna or sushi.
The variation of furikake used in this recipe is “nori komi,” roughly
translated as “seaweed taste.” Ingredients of nori komi furikake include
toasted white and/or black sesame seeds, black and green laver
seaweed, sugar, and salt. Japanese rice crackers are made with mochi
(pounded glutinous rice), usually flavored with soy sauce, and also
called “arare” (hailstones) or “kaki mochi” (fried glutinous rice) and
come in different shapes and sizes. Arare is usually roasted, not fried.
You can buy furikake and arare from Asian grocery stores such as
Mai’s in Newport or Rice n Spice in Corvallis.
2 cups Rice Chex
2 cups Wheat Chex
2 cups Corn Chex
2 cups Honeycomb cereal (optional, though recommended)
2 cups pretzel sticks
2 cups dry roasted peanuts
2 cups arare (see note above)
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2! tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman is recommended as it has a
richer flavor)
! cup vegetable oil (Steve’s recipe listed " cup, but I reduced this)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
10 drops Tabasco sauce
2 (2-ounce) bottles Nori Komi Furikake (see note above)

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
Mix together all the cereals, pretzels, and peanuts in a large
baking pan (The tin foil ones that you can buy from the store to
roast turkey works really well!).
Divide the mixture evenly between two pans.
In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter.
Add corn syrup, soy sauce, oil, Worcestershire sauce, and
Tabasco Sauce. Stir until sugar is dissolved and everything is
blended well
Pour over cereal mixture, one pan at a time, and mix well.
Put into the oven.
After 10 minutes, remove from oven, and add one bottle of
furikake to each pan. Mix around to evenly distribute furikake and
sauce from the bottom.
Continue baking for about 1 to 2 hours, stirring every 10 to 15
minutes.
The cooking time fluctuates depending on how crispy you want it,
and how humid it is (making this in 90% humidity is a nightmare!).
Cool, then break apart if necessary. (The mix should fall apart
easily, otherwise roast in oven a few more minutes.) Store in an
airtight container.
NOTE You can substitute other types of cereal for any of the Chex cereals, as
long as the amounts are equivalent. For example, you can use Crispix instead of
rice, wheat, or corn Chex. You can also add things such as goldfish crackers in
place of the cereal or arare, although the arare has a unique flavor. If you use
bagged instead of bottled furikake, use ! cup to 1 cup of it, adjusting to taste.
COMMUNITY QUILTS
With everyone’s help
Community Quilts
donated 25 quilts to the
Olalla Center in Toledo.
The children were
delighted to have quilts to
snuggle with while at the
center.
Community Service
donated 60 pillows to the Newport hospital. A few of the
donated pillows are sold in the Samaritan Pacific Communities
Hospital gift shop. The hospital auxiliary uses profits from gift
shop sales to fund various programs, buy equipment for the
hospital, and to fund scholarships. The majority of donated
pillows are given for patients to use after surgery and to make
patients more comfortable during their stay. Thanks to
everyone who helped make pillows!
Community Service meets every Tuesday at Wilma’s studio
(834 SW 13th St. Newport) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This month
we will be tying quilts on the first Thursday in May at Quilter
Cottage (355 N. Main St., Toledo) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Join
us sometime…we have lots of fun visiting and laughing while
we work on quilts. All skill levels are welcome.
We received very nice thank you notes from various groups
and individuals such as Sylvia Smith, Lincoln County
Children’s Advocacy Center for the quilts donated with a
special thank you to Toni Brodie for making the quilt and
Jennifer Reinhart for machine quilting the quilt donated to the
center to use as in a raffle later this year, and Lincoln County
Foster Parents Association.
Thanks to everyone who donates time, supplies and talent to
make Community Quilts such a success!
