Yesterday my trusty companion, Peggy from Pinwheels and Posies, and I traveled to Montana. The plane out of Houston was delayed and our connection in SLC was going to be tight. The trusty flight attendants asked all passengers to please let the Kalispell passengers leave the plane first. We were also told our connection was already boarding – so we hoofed it over to concourse E from the far end of concourse C only to find out that they had not started boarding! Well we considered that our exercise for the day – and took the opportunity to purchase a bite to eat for the plane. Then it was time to board our plane. We were at gate E70 which is a portal to many more gates – of course we were gate 23 which was quite a jaunt. But the end of the journey is so worth it. Arrived in Kalispell around 3:45 local time and it was 90 degrees, but NO HUMIDITY – we Houston gals can get used to this in a hurry!
Our gracious host and teacher above all teachers joined us for dinner and gave us a trunk show – here are a few pictures from the trunk show…..
Feathered Star in a new color way – these are all blues and just off white. Quilting by Judy and Del Niemeyer!

Queen size feathered star – I didn’t think I needed to make this one, I’ve made the small one – but oh my oh my – I want to make one now!

This is the back of one of the more modern wedding ring quilts – love love love it
Weeping Willow – I have my papers all cut out – now just to choose my fabrics and get started!
Judy also shared some of the quilts that are designed by Cyndi McCracken
And here are a few pictures of the view – I hope you enjoy!
Moon Rise over Flathead Lake
The sun just starting to peak over the mountains…
I had already put my UV lens cover back on the camera so there is a little sun with the big sun – but you get the idea!
Oh I can’t wait till next July when I will be right there!!
Do you read Jackie’s blog? she did the feather star this week in Montana at retreat
Jackie and I were in Montana together. I loved watching her feathered star come together! I worked on a couple of much smaller projects
