I know that you have seen all the following quilts on my blog at one point or another, but do you know what they all have in common?
A Touch Of Spring
A Garden For My Wedding Ring
Fourth of July
Seasonal Table Runner
And Total Eclipse.
Do you know yet? Well, they are all paper pieced, and Judy Niemeyer patterns, I made them all. But the most important and exciting thing to me besides the fact that I so enjoyed making them... They were my portfolio which helped me to become accepted into Judy Niemeyer's National Teacher Certification program!!
I am besides myself with excitement. I love her methods and her patterns that is why I stock many in my shop (click here to see)! I will be heading back to Montana in July of 2012 to get more training in teaching her techniques with 9 other new teachers. I will be a part of a very small grouping of teachers that are Certified to teach her methods and classes within their regions.
I already have some lectures/trunk shows and workshops scheduled with guilds and shops into 2013! If you are or know of anyone who is interested in having me come to do any of the above, leave a comment or send me an e-mail! I would love to come! I believe I will be covering some of these areas, CT, RI, MA, NY, Northern NJ, and Eastern PA.
SIDE NOTE: Don't forget to return here for the Blogger's BOM, but it will be delayed until the 27th due to the holiday.
