The Niemeyer Crazies - 1st Meeting!

The Niemeyer Crazies (guild's special interest group) held their first meeting today!  The Chairwoman ... Chief of the Crazies ... Lila, organized today's meeting.
Lila is doing the "Wild Goose Chase" pattern.  Her batiks were beautiful and her enthusiasm gave this group just the inspiration we needed!  Thanks for organizing us, Chief of the Crazies!
There were five of us who chose to take on this Quiltworx challenge!  Several of us have dabbled with her patterns before ... her instructions are incredible ... and the quilts are amazing!  Judy Niemeyer taught at the Valdez Quilt Festival in 2008, and a few of us were fortunate to take a class with her.  Diane was one of those ... today she was working on the "Glacier Pines" pattern.  It promises to be stunning!
Valerie and I are working on the "Seasonal Tablerunners" pattern.  As always, we had a case of the giggles!  Is it appropriate to be silly while working on a Judy Niemeyer pattern?  If you're somewhat crazy it is! ;-)
Remember the nursery rhyme ..."she had so many children, she didn't know what to do"?  That was Diane's dilemma ... she had so many patterns, she didn't know which one to do first!  We had fun teasing her about that! ;-)  But we completely agree...all of Judy Niemeyer's patterns are stunning!  Diane eventually decided to make the "Three Ducks in a Row"!

Gosh ... as always we had a ton of fun!  It will be exciting (and entertaining) to watch as we work together on our Niemeyer projects!
