Glacier Star Update


I have finally gotten the bug to pull my Glacier Star quilt out of the UFO pile and start working on it again. I went to Montana to the retreat house out there with the Judy Niemeyer crew.  Lots of fun ...and the CI Eileen Urbanek was my teacher. She is a pure delight to be around for sure. The country side and lake were just breath taking. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.  As I love paper piecing...it was great to get back into the swing of things with this pattern. All the these photos have been my sewing sessions for the last 3 days.


The big section on my board...was done while I was in Montana....But the smaller parts is what I've been working on. Judy Niemeyer quilts are just like puzzles...got a lot of parts to make...then start piecing the parts together to make bigger parts...then before you know it you have a big quilt :0) 

Can't wait to see it all put together.
Of course I am surrounded by pups no matter which studio I'm in...poor Bella....LOL!!! The sound of my machine always puts her to sleep. 

Thanks for popping in...What have you been up to lately??

PS.... Great news from the Doctor yesterday!!!!! My bones are totally fused !!! YES!!!! This means I can now start to walk on my own two feet!!!! YYYYEEEESSSSSS!!! It has been a really long 16 weeks of no walking, or driving. So...happy to be making baby steps back in my life. Thank you for all your well wishes...much love. S
