Nebraska: Day 6!

Thursday was the last day of the retreat:( I’ve had so much fun and met so many cool people! I wanted to share some pics of Country Traditions! This is one half of the shop.

It’s a really large shop; this is the other half! They have so many GO! dies:)

The classroom is also quite large; they actually call it a ballroom classroom.

We started the day with door prizes! I won this cuteness from Robert Kaufman:)

After a fun day of sewing, we hopped on the bus and headed to Omaha to AccuQuilt headquarters!

And he introduced us to his exhibit!! Yep, that’s my barn quilt again;)

He took us through the exhibit talking about his evolution through quilting. This one was a real highlight. Ricky and his Dad made it together. Because I sew and quilt with the Guru, I really enjoyed listening to his process with his Dad. And that star!! Swoon.

He quilts on a domestic so he talked about how he quilts. He had an awesome “you can do it attitude”! I can’t wait to get home and get quilting!!

I’m in love with this quilting!! In. Love.

There were so many more amazing stories and ideas. If you ever have the opportunity to meet, talk to, take a class from or in any other way interact with Ricky Timms, you must do it! He was fabulous!! I will leave you with lots of eye candy and fond fond memories!!

  1. I am loving reading about your journey! So fun to see other places and what they are doing~ your barn quilt looks spectacular and Ricky TImms! I took a seminar/workshop with him several years ago – nothing but amazing and inspiring! Have FUN!

  2. So much fun to hear about your travels….And yes, yes, yes on Ricky Tims as a teacher or lecturer….I had a class with him about 12 years ago in California and I credit him and Freddie Moran for my “design style” and the way I look at color….very inspirational and he sings too! Did you get him to serenade you with guitar? By the way, love the picture of him on the stage and your beautiful barn block up on the wall-that’s a keeper for the resume!
