Ricky Tims Quilt Seminar

If you ever get a chance to go to one of Ricky Tims seminar, NEVER, NEVER pass it up.  I never thought I could learn so much and be so entertained about quilting as I was over those three days.   We were up every morning by 6:30, as we were not staying at the hotel that the seminar was at,  and did not get back to our hotel until 9pm each night. 

Every minute was totally worth it.  Here I am with Alex Anderson.

The seminar featured Ricky Tims, Alex Anderson and Libby Lehman.

There was one sad part of the seminar and that was that Ricky ended up in the hospital with a kidney and Urinary Infection.  Alex and Libby filled in and he did some of the lectures and demonstrations but I'm sure it would have been better if he could have taken part in more of the seminars.

We learned:

Caveman Style Quilting

Convergence Quilts

Rhapsody Quilts

Kool Kaleidoscope

and so much more that
there isn't room to describe it all.

It looks hard, but they showed us an easy way.

Alex is from Wisconsin and someone gave her a cheese head.

Alex taught us Hand Quilting & Choosing Fabric.

Libby taught us Sheer Ribbon Illusions and Potluck Applique.

They both filled in for Ricky also and did his portion of the Seminar.

Libby kept us in 'stitches' with her many jokes and off handed expressions.
No one slept through the first few hours of the morning
we were too busy

Love your photo of you with Alex! How cool is that? Everyone who has met her talks about how warm and genuine she is. I get that same feeling from you, Peggy. Bet it was great fun!!!
