What IS the movie with the line, "Judy, Judy, Judy"? That is going to bug me until I remember, but the phrase kept looping in my brain as I edited the photos for this post. Gee, I hope it is a good movie!
She has been very helpful to a new quilter (me) via email, and I was delighted to meet her at the June Gathering of the Mississippi Quilt Association. (The second photo is of Judy in her class space at the June Gathering.)
This first quilt pictured in this post,
"Mississippi Backroads Treasures" is now available in patterns. YIPPEE!
I bought the first three patterns from Judy at the June Gathering, and I will be starting this quilt very soon...probably the Black Eyed Susan block first. Now all the patterns in that quilt are available.
Take a look at the growing list of honors her quilts have been collecting!
One of her miniature quilts won First Place in the Miniature Category this year at Paducah! Two more of her winning miniature quilts are featured in the new book by the American Quilter's Society, Oh Wow, Miniature Quilts and Their Makers.
Really, you should read this page of her website and be as awed as I am to see all the honors her quilting has garnered!
Wednesday of this week July 28th, Judy will have a trunk show for the Gulf States Quilting Association in Jackson, MS. Now I know what a "trunk show" is for furs, but I have never been to a trunk show for quilts.
Gee, I hope it means that Judy will have examples of all of her quilts to show us and talk about. At least one of her miniature quilts is in the permanent collection at Paducah, so maybe she has made a second quilt of the same pattern?
This district meeting of GSQA will be held at Christ United Methodist Church, 6000 Old Canton Road, Jackson, MS.
So far, I have not found the time of this meeting, not even in the GSQA Newsletter "Quilt Talk". As soon as I find out the time, I will post it here. (See Roanoke's comment posted below. She has all the details plus contact info for attending this delicious trunk show!)
Gulf States Quilting Association is a gathering of 1300 member quilters primarily from Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida, but membership is open to anyone. The GSQA stitches go back to 1984. Judy is also a Circuit Teacher for the GSQA!
(Get it? Instead of "roots", I used "stitches". Probably time for me to try to sleep, huh? Just 14 minutes until the Hubby-requested computer shut-down. *grin*)
Sad to say, I had never heard of GSQA until I overheard a conversation at the Mary Sorensen needle turn applique class I attended last summer. Gee, there is so much to "catch up on" in this fascinating world of quilting, and I feel SO FAR BEHIND!
Just wait until you see what I started today as a surprise for my mother! I almost finished the applique part of it tonight!
Oh, wait, I found the "Judy, Judy, Judy" thing. It is apparently a Cary Grant movie. Here is a fun story about the "Judy, Judy, Judy" myth!
