I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminar in Hyannis this past weekend. We were prepared for Hurricane (no hurricane) Earl but it didn't make a difference to the 350 quilters who showed up.
My expectations were sort of medium. I knew Ricky, Libby Lehman and Alex Anderson would be great speakers and their quilts would be gorgeous. I didn't know that I would come away with a lot of new techniques and a TON of inspiration. I am already designing my Rhapsody quilt and thinking hard about something Libby said: You Have to Enter to Win. Meaning, if I want to compete in quilt shows, I have to actually submit a quilt or two. That automatically raises the bar in terms of design and technique. It's a challenge I am ready to work on.

Now off to the sewing room!
