Not the Bermuda Triangle – It’s the Golden Triangle – Quilt Guild!

Last Thursday, Friday and Saturday I was having a blast in Beaumont, TX with the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild.

A double trunk show (they have a morning and an evening meeting) and then 2 days of workshops, a different pattern each day.  If you want to feel right at home, then this is the guild for you!  Visit GTQG website and you will find their amazing show and tell AND if you look a little bit more – you will find VERY CANDID photos from my trunk show!  Thanks PJ (I think!)

Pattern for Day 1 was Indian Summer these are some blocks with the light background, then she will have the opposite effect with her next set - aren't these rich colors?

Wednesdays – Niemeyer Style

Once a month I hostess a finishing class for students that are working on their Judy Niemeyer quilts.  Some come to pick out fabric, some come to cut fabric, some come to sew.  We all show up to be inspired!  I have been teaching these classes for several years now and watching these quilts come together is always a treat!

So to inspire you I have chosen a few delights!

Rita's Flowers for My Wedding Quilt - This will be for her Granddaughter.
