Day 6... The Finish....

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was the "Official" last day of the Certified Shop retreat!  A great time was had by all and we all made some new friends and had fun with old friends too. 

Even though it was the "Official" last day we are still here for another day and a half and there is going to be some more sewing going on... Yippee!!

For now, I want to share some of the events of yesterday...


First, I am just ECSTATIC!!! I finished my Queen Size Feathered Star and I just couldn't be more pleased.  I adore this quilt and would make it all over again in a heart beat!!!

But the best part is that you will all be able to make this too, if you like.  I will be kitting this up just like this in my online store.  There have been many requests for it on Facebook and we will make that happen.... I will keep you up to date on the status.


The start of the day you could find Roger and I joining our Feathered star segments together. It was nice to have someone else there making the same quilt.  The difference is he made his from Radiance fabrics, a blend of silk and cotton and mine is all from batiks.

So we decided to do something fun and see what our segments would look like together.  Actually not too bad... What do you think?


Everyday was gorgeous here in Montana and we took advantage of it eating on the deck everyday.  We had hummingbirds visiting us while we were eating.  


This photo is just too funny not to share, Denise and I were helping Roger (who is way taller than either of us) put his quilt up on the wall.  My arm doesn't even reach 2 inches above his shoulder... LOL.


My pal Ginny was having a moment... She was definitely doing a happy dance!


Denise made great strides with her My 2 Baby Sisters.  LOVE the colors!


Roger's quilt... just breathtaking....!!!


Twin Feathered Stars. They look lovely together, don't you think?  This was a great little photo shoot.


Carol's Mariner's Compass with the feathers added.  It is turning out just gorgeous!


Ginny finally has the design wall to herself now that my quilt is down and she had no problem filling it up.  Her Captain's Wheel looks just gorgeous!!


Sally was busy adding the ropes.  I love the yellow it adds so much!


Lauren moved her quilt into the main room and the lighting is so much better.  Love how it is turning out!


Ardelle has half of her Mariner's Compass all quilted!  She is also doing her quilt out of a combination of Radiance and cotton fabrics.  I really am loving this color way!!

And yes, I couldn't help myself... 


I started a new project!

Wow! While my favorites are always those made with rainbow colors, like yours, I have to say that Roger's surpasses as the most striking of the lot by far! I love when you show people's work in the classes, Jackie. Lots of fun!

some very great quilts there! I love the batik that you made better though but that is just a personal preference - all of the quilts are spectacular.
