May 2019 News from Delphine's Quilt Shop, LC
Store Hours: 10 am to 6 pm Monday thru Saturday
Closed Memorial Day, Monday, May 27
We are glad to announce that Quilt Cruizine for 2019 is ready to roll. Please note that The Quilt House from Indian River is not on the route but a new shop, Aunt Effy's, from West Branch is. The route will run counter clockwise, so the first stop after boarding at Delphine's will be Hearts to Holly in Charlevoix. This is going to be an awesome trip so I hope you can join us! See you soon.
Note - The buses leaving from Aunt Effy's and Delphine's are full so please contact Cousin's or Hearts to Holly to secure a seat on their bus. Thank you
Circa 1880's Club
The main project is this Mini Uneven Nine Patch Block Quilt ( 72" x 78"). Group members are exchanging fabric strips from their stashes to provide a variety of prints in addition to the 27 prints from The Circa Prairie Basics fabric collection.
The program is supported by a private Facebook group, where Pam will interact directly with quilters, sharing blocks, tips and inspiration. Prizes and coupons will be given away at all meetings!
As an added benefit, Club participants receive six small quilt projects
featuring the Uneven Nine Patch blocks.
The cost of the Club is only for materials as there is no attendance fee at Delphine's for this club. For $85.00 members will receive $100+ worth of fabric, 7 patterns and a template set. Fabric kits for the 6 small quilts will be $75.99 or club members can use their own fabrics to make the small quilts. Club members will need to purchase 4 yards of background fabric for the Mini Nine Patch quilt.
This Club meets the Second Saturday, of each Month from 10:30 am to 12:30pm.
A request and a Thank You from our QOV piecers!
Several people have stepped up and quilted tops for the QOV group! Thank you. If you haven't offered to quilt a top but would like to, we can still use quilters. Please contact the shop at 989-732-1252 if you are able to help.
If you like to sew down binding we could use some volunteers for that task also.
Please contact the shop if you can help us complete quilts needed for upcoming presentations.

Recipe of the Month
Grammy's Chocolate Cookies
3 1/2 dozen cookies
2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 sticks softened butter
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Beat the softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter/sugar mixture until combined. Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the mixed dry ingredients. Form the dough into a flattened disk, wrap in plastic and chill for about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Shape the dough into 1 1/4" balls and roll the balls in sanding sugar. Place the balls 1 1/2" apart on the baking sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
