Foundation Piecing – PNQS taking the plunge!

July 19, 2013

I have always been a fan of paper piecing – I even taught a beginners class of a little heart a couple years ago.  In the shop Cindy offered a wonderful class last winter of the quilt below – it was a popular class and folks have been asking for more, more, more…

IMG_1778 I have always dreamed of doing something like this:

jn4                                    or this!  At Quilt Market we entered the Judy Neimeyer Quilting booth………   all three of us were stopped dead in our tracks – we were amazed.  After a bit a very nice gal came up to us and asked us to sit down – – after visiting for a bit we were hooked…

jn1jn2Now enter Julie Arrowood, a certified Quiltworx instructor.  She graced us with a visit to the shop last week and brought many samples and again, they about took our breath away.  We had a great time with her and put dates on the calendar to offer 4 Saturday classes this fall   She is a wonderful person and I have heard a very talented (and patient) instructor!

julieGlacier Star !!!   Julie will guide all of us beginning with fabric selection, she says they really are not that hard and once you get the concepts, you can make ANYTHING!

jn6We now have these patterns in the shop (and Connie is putting in our online store tomorrow :))

IMG_1777Also coming soon – digitized quilting designs for Quiltworx patterns – Very exciting!!!

jn3We are so super excited about this Connie and I have enrolled to go to a Quilting Retreat for shop owners in Montana next year to become a certified shop!

jn5So many new adventures – won’t you join us?

I don't think I've ever been ready for a trip or event earlier than the night before. I have IDEAS for months, but those ideas don't come to fruition until the looming deadline of "if they don't trick or treat now, they don't trick or treat until next year" or "if you don't leave now, the airplane will leave without you" forces my hand and my sewing machine.
