It seems quilters like fabric, they love to save, and the love to see quilt. I have an overs upply of my own personal hand-dyed fabric and it's time to purge. On top of that, we need to liquidate all of my remaining commercial fabric. So, with all of those things, we've decided to have a sort of garage sale. That means my studio purge is your stash builder. It's happening in La Veta, Colorado so come on down. I'll be there, so be sure to come say hi!

 

 

COMING TO HOUSTON, DALLAS, TULSA in 2017

Quilt Luminarium is a two-day comprehensive quilt symposium that demystifies seemingly complex concepts, teaches mastery of unique techniques, and harnesses the power of the ever-elusive muse of creativity. It covers a wide range of topics including innovative piecing, appliqué, quilting, and finishing techniques. Sessions also include design and composition and color theory. 

Quilt Luminarium presenter, Ricky Tims, is a longtime entertainer, encourager, comedian, and motivational speaker. He has a unique and pragmatic way to help one realize their full creative potential. He unmasks the creative psyche and reveals common attributes (both good and bad) that creative individuals share. Quilters will learn how to take traditional patterns and make them unique and how a pattern can be adapted to reflect any quilting genre.

  • There is no sewing, no supply list. Quilters won’t be going home with a UFO (Unfinished Object). Everyone attends all sessions.
  • Quilt Luminarium is truly for all quilters from beginner to advanced, from traditional to contemporary, and from modern to art.
  • Each registrant receives full-color syllabus containing all of the information presented!

 

Each year thousands of quilters arrive in Paducah, KY for the AQS QuiltWeek! I have been to Paducah every year since I was a baby quilter in 1992. I grew as a quilter, made friends, and even watched my career grow as a result of AQS having me as part of the Hobbs Fashion Show back in 1998. I love going to Paducah and this year marks my 24th year to attend ( I missed in 2000 due to my move to Colorado). 

This year is also another milestone. I will be giving my 10th concert at the Carson Center on Friday evening, April 22nd. The stunning European-style concert hall there is my favorite venue in which to perform and I'm looking forward to celebrating the evening with all my quilting friends and family! I sure hope to see you there. If you are coming to Paducah, don't miss it. 

Advance tickets are available.

If you wait until you arrive, be sure to purchase tickets at the registration desk in the days preceding the concert. If you have a non-quilting spouse or friend traveling with you - bring them along. This is a fun-for-all event. See you there!

Mi Cabina - My Little Cabin
 

If you have never taken one of Ricky's online quilt classes, this is a great time to start. The class runs for a short three weeks and the quilt is quick, easy, and fun.

Mi Cabina, By Ricky Tims, 70.5" x 80.5"


Mi Cabina (a twin/queen-bed coverlet) is the perfect snuggle quilt for you, but it also makes a great graduation gift or housewarming present. It features a fun variation on a timeless classic - The Log Cabin Courthouse Steps. The design has a scrappy aspect that is unified by a formal design layout. The appliqués featured in the border can be personalized allowing you the option of truly making this quilt your own.

The classes post each Saturday morning and the best part is that you can participate at your own pace in the comfort of your own studio. You will be making the quilt along with other online classmates which means you can interact with them and share photos of your progress!
