Day 7... What Happened?

 Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was our last day at the Certified Instructor Judy Niemeyer Instructor Retreat!  I am NOW officially certified to teach her techniques and patterns nationally!!  WooHoo!!

Anyway, this post has less pictures... sorry.  We all began piecing our units together and subsequently had to take them off the wall to do that...  so here are some photos that I know you will appreciate.


Jodie's quilt was the one that was mostly whole on the wall.  Isn't it fantastic?  I just love the orange and red.  I can't wait to see this completed.


Sue was able to get a TON done and was just about ready to take this down when I snagged her for a photo.  She was leaving very early in the morning to head back to Alaska!


My table mate Cathy really channeled her inspiration... peacock feathers.  Her quilt is much more gorgeous in person!  


Lisa, also a table mate, really worked hard today to add her sails and they are gorgeous.  Love that she matches her quilt, just like the other ladies.


Cat was busy making all her units and finally got to piecing them together.  Here are a few of them.  Love the hot pink!!


I managed to get one of the wedges completely sewn together, only 7 more to go!  This was largely due to the fact that...


Judy did a technique demo using my units.  Thank you, Judy!!  I really needed that!

All in all it has been a week that I will remember.  I met lots of extremely talented, witty, creative, lovely new friends.  I feel I am amongst some wonderful people.  I couldn't ask for more.

You must stay tuned to see how my quilt ends up... I think you will be surprised!

Oh and one more thing...


That's right I will be chatting with my friend, Pat Sloan, on her radio show tomorrow!! You can listen in at 4:00 EDT.


I will be in good company too!  She will also be chatting with Marilu Henner and my friend Monica Solario-Snow, The Happy Zombie.  So come and listen in by clicking here on Monday, July 16 at 4:00 PM EDT!


Until Next Time...
