critters and quilts

Another one of Freddy's quilts....watch for her new book!
Friday Harbor....so beautiful and perfect weather.

Snow geese on the way to La Conner Museum.

HI Friends....I cannot believe it has been so long since I have written...does that mean my life is dull....or am I just too busy....maybe both! In the past weeks we have chased alpacas and goats...escapees from our attempts at fencing them in....got some new koi...and I have been teaching and quilting up a storm. Yesterday was a wind storm with winds nearly 50mph.....wow....the power went off and I couldn't work, so we went to the mall and walked around and added another koi to the pond....a pretty lemon yellow and white spotted one. I hated to put her into that cold water, but in she went.

I am all finished with Freddy Moran's last 18 quilts....for another book...lots of string quilts that are really neat. So be watching for the next book!!

As for Freddy, my friend Stephanie Davis has started a brown nose Freddy Fan club on facebook...if you love Freddy, see if you can find it on Facebook...I am not much help there I am afraid. It should be fun to see who signs up.

I am teaching this Saturday for my guild....the woven quilts....and in 2 weeks I will be teaching at Lady of the Lakes in Longview, WA....I am teaching quilting and doing a trunk show for them at their guild......maybe I will see some of you there!

It is a cold and wet spring and this morning I think it was hailing, too. I am looking forward to more teaching, and meeting more gals in guilds. Last Saturday I did a trunk show and demo for the Northwest Quilting Connection. What a great group of gals. I think I will join them. It will be fun to learn from more quilting friends.

I had a great time teaching in Friday Harbor....I took the ferry there, and taught a couple of Kaffe Fassett's quilts. The girls did some beautiful pieces....and they sure did feed me well!!

Well, today I am expecting a new quilter to come by the studio...new to me....his name is Luke Haynes and you can see his work on the web. It will be fun to work with a guy quilter...there are a few out there....Scott Hansen is another guy from my guild who does great quilts, too.

Well, gotta eat some lunch and get busy on the longarm...one to finish and mail today, and another one to mail to CA.....yet this week.....so, hope you are all quilting and enjoying your moments of creativity....judy

  1. Hi Judy!
    I am from Friday Harbor - but was unable to take your class. I am about to begin work on a 'memory quilt' for a friend and have been contemplating how to do it. A friend sent me a photo of a tumbling blocks variation that she took at your class. Long story short - I fell in love with it and think it would be perfect as a background for this quilt I am planning. Is a pattern for this quilt anywhere that I can purchase?

    Hope that I will be able to attend your class next time - I have heard only rave reviews about both the class - and your teaching abilities and great personality.
