Tomorrow I leave for Pennsylvania for the Studio 180 Design Inaugural Certified Teacher Reunion. Whew is that a mouthful! I have been so excited about attending this event that I got sick two days ago. I have been in bed for two days trying to get well enough to drive 8 hours tomorrow. We were the first group of quilters to get certified by Deb Tucker. After our weekend reunion, Deb will start the process of certifying the second group of lucky inductees. We (the first group) are so excited to see each other again, we really bonded over our experience together.
To prepare for this weekend, we were given instructions for a Deb Tucker Mystery Quilt. We had to make many, many ,many Split Rects, Flying Geese, and Half Square Triangles. We were also tasked with creating a challenge block to see if we can figure out what Studio 180 Tools were used to make it. I love playing block detective. I call it being a QSI (Quilt Scene Investigator). The only trouble is I tried making mine while in a NyQuil induced stupor. I guess I will share it as what NOT to do!
We are going to try out a new yet to be released pattern by Deb Tucker. Also, there are rumors about a new Studio 180 Tool! I can’t wait to get there. I’ll let you know what goes on!
