I rarely do someone else's pattern and here I actually tried to copy her work completely. It was an amazing study. If you don't recognize the piece it is a Caryl Bryer Fallert pattern, Soaring Compliments. I bought the her fabric, her pattern and her workshop on CD. It was such a worthwhile endeavor. I learned so much from my very first quilting goddess!
She truly is my inspiration for quilting. I have since bought her machine quilting workshop on the web - also great.

This is what I have been spending most of my time on. I wish I could say it was my pattern, but I can not tell a lie. It is Judy Niemeyer's 4th of July. As you can see it is still a work in process. Sorry that it takes so long to upload, but it is worth the wait. I haven't posted in almost two months. I have been working on this and the my very own Soaring Compliments (see other post). I also had a quick drive to Florida for my sister's wedding and then the following weekend my DH and I had to drive down for my Uncle's funeral - it was a very emotinal and exhausting month. I also taught a few times this month and added an Embellisher class to the list of classes that I teach. It went amazingly well. What a cool machine!
