Checking in.....

It has been a whirlwind kind of week and it is hard to believe that the time has flown so fast.  I have made some incredible friends and I can not thank Matt and Bradie enough for inviting me to come to Sparrow Studios.  They are wonderful people.  I have had two retreats in four days with one more retreat on Monday and Tuesday.  So, it isn't over yet!  I just wanted to share a little of what I have been doing this last week.
That's me in the middle there talking quilting.  So much fun!
Talking feathers - such a treat.  It is always a little different quilting on a machine other than your own, but we have had a great time learning together.  I plan on sharing more of my trip when I get home.  In the meantime, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

PS -  there is a sneak peek of my newest pattern, "Starburst" shown above.  I'll share more on that next week when I can!

I met Matt online along time ago, 2008-ish. I wish he and Bradie were here in the US. Canada is a bit far for me. But, I'm so glad you are having a great time!

Dear Judi, (and Jessie!)

Please thank your family for letting you come visit us and inspire our creativity with your quilting and passion. I know it was a long time to be away from a young family, so please tell them thanks! You will soon have your 'Mommy time'!

Safe travels home, and I look forward to following your blog and as always, finding ideas and inspiration.

It was a fabulous workshop Judi! I have learned so, so much. And now to practice, practice, practice. Thank you for sharing your talents with such kindness and humour! I hope you will venture north again sometime. Wishing you an uneventful trip home and lots of hugs and kisses when you get there. Thanks again! - Patti Erikson-Reynolds

Wow -- you're an international quilting superstar now, aren't you?! Good thing you don't have to lug your long arm machine onto the plane and through customs, even if it does mean you have to use a different machine to teach once you get there!

I'm surprised to see that feathers were a feature in the class! I haven't noticed them in your most recent quilts much, at least not the ones you've shared on your blog.

Have a safe trip home to your loved ones!
