Quilting in Nebraska II

This past November I had a wonderful time teaching in Nebraska. I had never been there before, and it was especially exciting because my niece and her family had recently moved to Omaha. I blogged about my time with the Lincoln quilt guild and my visit to the Nebraska Quilt Study Center in this post: http://chrisquilts.net/blog/?p=6735.

Well this past week I made my second trip there, and it was just as delightful! This time I was invited to share my passion with the Prairie Piecemakers guild of Fremont. There was a great turn out for my “Tradition With a Twist” lecture, and the following day I taught Compass Capers in a spectacular quilt shop called Country Traditions.

The shop sprawls across 4 floors of what had been a furniture store.

View from the front door with Scott, quilter, teacher, employee and super student - he was the first to finish a compass!

They had a marvelous selection of fabric, with many artfully designed displays. The second floor contained the offices, and the third floor/fourth floor housed the classrooms!

The students were such fun, and they accomplished a lot.

Great job everyone! Thanks to Jan and Prairie Piecemakers, as well as to everyone at Country Traditions.

All this and another lovely visit with family too. Thanks Kaitlin, Marty, Henry and Rosemary – love you  😀 !
