We received this note through Judie Rothermel, from quilter Lars Rune in Norway. He recreated his own very unique version of Marcus Fabrics’ Civil War TRIBUTE quilt. He wrote to Judie and submitted this photo, explaining:
Moving on to Redlands, Pati checks in with the Painted Lady Quilt Shop. It’s a true haven for Judie Rothermel fans: a customer work-in-progress featuring Pine Tree Lodge (upper left); a full wall of her prints (lower right photo), and Kerri, who owns the shop, reports that 30 people already signed up for the Civil War: PEACE & UNITY Block of the Month (lower left). At upper right is Faye Burgos’ LOVE & GLORY. Judging from these pics, it’s probably safe to say that combinations of blue with red are probably popular in Redlands as well!
…The first issue of 2014 (Jan/Feb) just hit my desk, and we’re thrilled to see Nancy Rink’s quilt made the cut! It’s on the chair, third from the left, and it features PARTY OF TWELVE by Judie Rothermel, PIN MONEY by Pam Buda and PAULA BARNES COMPANIONS. Check out this full view of the quilt, called “Clara’s Pride”...with just two block designs and a beautiful range of repro prints, we think it’s a great way to begin the quilting year! Congratulations, Nancy! — lisa s
As part of our Just Judie quilt competition prize package, the quilt shop sponsoring the most entries was rewarded with a visit from Judie herself! So, on Friday, November 1, Judie (accompanied by her Marcus Fabrics entourage) arrived at Little Quilts in Marietta, GA for an afternoon of festivities.
With an impressive 24 entries sponsored, Little Quilts owner Mary Ellen VonHolt proudly hosted the special event — part meet-and-greet, part trunk show – for an excited group of contestants, customers and guests. Mary Ellen and Judie showed some of her own quilts, and attendees left with goodies including Judie’s tips for creating with miniatures, and much more! …As they say, a wonderful time was had by all! Congratulations again to Little Quilts and its entrants on a job beautifully done.
This just in! The November/December 2013 issue of McCall’s Quilting features our SCARLET EVENING line by Judie Rothermel in a one-block quilt designed by Dolores Smith & Sarah Maxwell.
