Super Seminar

Here is baby K, all ready for school (daycare) with a fresh package of wipes. She has been so funny when I comb her hair in the morning. She always reminds me: "Be gentle Mommy, gentle with the baby!"

I spent the last two and a half days at the Ricky Tims Super Seminar with special guests Alex Anderson and Libby Lehman. (These people are rock stars in the quilting world!!) All of them do beautiful work and are very entertaining teachers.
Someday, I want to be able to quilt a nice feathered cable border like Alex...I think my first project will be a kaleidoscope, like Ricky's on the left. Then I'll start designing a Rhapsocy quilt like his on the right. These are spectacular applique pieces! Too bad I had such a hard time holding the camera still. I'm off to check out The Quilt Show and the Ricky Tims website. The Quilt Show is an online quilter's gallery...the closest thing to Ravelry in the fabric world!
