Hello Everyone,

I am here!! On retreat!! With my bestest quilty buddies! Guess what? At our table we had all brought along paper piecing projects. How funny is that? I guess we are just addicted to it because it is fun and gives great results.

So let me show you some fun pics...

This Double Wedding ring is my quilt, a Judy Niemeyer pattern, that is all paper pieced. I started this one about 7 years ago or so. All it needed was the last 2 borders to be applied. I don't know why I waited so long. So this was the first project I took out and had it finished within an hour and a half! Now why did I wait so long?? I just have to quilt it now.

Her is my friend Pam's A Touch Of Spring quilt up on the design wall. Another Judy Niemeyer pattern. You can see what mine looks like by clicking here. Pam's is almost done! Her's is in beautiful teals and purples.

Justine, my shop helper and BQF (as my kids dubbed her), is working on this beach quilt. Again, all paper pieced, but not a Judy Niemeyer pattern.

Ooops, what is this? Justine is "unsewing"!! Hmmm... that happens to all of us.

My friend, Caroline, who I haven't seen in a while because she is a super busy person, not to mention she was in glorious Italy for 2.5 weeks. Why wasn't I invited??? Anyway, she is working on a Judy Niemeyer pattern too!

My friend Deb, good friend, confident, and just all around super person also working on a Judy Niemeyer project. Did I mention that Caroline and Deb have been BFF's for 30 years. They are really organized about their quilting and tend to have everything done for one another. They always have each other's backs. How sweet is that??

My friend and also neighbor Pam. She and I talk daily. She is a great sounding board and fellow long arm quilter. Although right now, I can't tell what she is quite thinking about. Love ya!

Here is Deb's Pepper Dish in progress auditioning some fabric choices in the center.

Here I am with my Judy Niemeyer Seasonal Table Runner complete!!

Hope you enjoyed meeting some of my pal's, but there is lots more to come! There are 34 of us quilty people here. Tons of photos for inspiration.

Gotta go... more to sew!

Until Next Time...
