A while back our guild had a workshop where we were supposed to make a Judy Neimeyer table runner. Now, I don't decorate with quilting stuff, but I wanted to get to know people, and the best way to do that is be involved, take classes and go to retreats. Since I don't decorate with quilting stuff, and had no real plans for this my brilliant plan was to use stash fabrics. Good plan, except and no one told me that scrappy was probably not a good idea. We had the most delightful teacher, Brenda Hall. She is talented, entertaining and she would even rip out if you put something together wrong. Pretty cool don't you think? Here's a couple of pictures of Brenda and the Judy Neimeyer quilts that she has done.
Lucky Tita!! Here is her table runner before I quilted it, but
it's FINISHED!! Way to go Tita!!
This pathetic looking thing is mine. lol!! I did manage to do two of the outside curving (is that really a word?) flying geese. But I had had enough, and didn't want to do any more of that stuff!!
Here's mine.....also all FINISHED!! They boys love to use it when they grab hot things out of the microwave. It's my trivet, and I like it.
Getting to know people who quilt.....priceless!
I still have the pattern and pick it up every now and then. I really like it, but I think my fabric choice wasn't a good one. I'm thinking I might make a couple more trivets for my new kitchen. They are wonderful trivets, this one has already been wash hundreds of times. Still don't think I'm gonna do those curving flying geese....
thanks for checking on me...
love to hear what you've got to say.....
