Big Sky – Big Quilts – Big Ambitions!

Good Day and welcome to technically day 3 of our adventure, but really the 2nd day of sewing.  I shared sunrise with you yesterday, today I was up before the sun peeked over the mountain and decided to take my quick shower – well up came the sun as I showered so I will share quilts this morning – they will brighten your day almost as much as sunrise!  I love the crisp cool mornings, I find them energizing!

So here are a few frames from our progress yesterday!

This is Roger - he has made 42 Judy Niemeyer quilts to date and loves to teach.  He and Ardelle are from Camden Canada

Miss Jackie keeps us entertained - she is a certified Judy Niemeyer instructor and after this week will be a certified online shop.  She loves bright colors and so willing to share all her tips and tricks about piecing, quilting, blogging etc.! (PS those border pieces are for Roger's quilt!)

Ginny is also a certified instructor and will be a certified ship, her colorful Mariner's Compass was the inspiration for my own!  Ginny is working on her Captains Wheel quilt - I love the red, white and blue!  Very appropriate to honor her Marine son!
