One of my favorite quotes is from Gene Fowler:

“Writing is easy: all you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead”

So here I am staring at a blank blog page, waiting for the drops of blood to form!!

Actually, I am thrilled to be launching a new website and starting a blog. I hope you have visited my quilt galleries and that you will come back often to see what’s new. I find working on the computer a bit addictive and suspect that I, like many of my friends, will have fun with this blog.

When I lived in Houston I met sporatically with a small group of quilters. We had a group exhibit at the Primedia Gallery in Golden, CO and we made a group quilt to accompany the exhibit. The name of our group was GOWIG which stands for “Get on with it, Girl” and the GOWIG quilt was a composite of our fabric self-portraits. Can you guess which one is me????

I could be the one of the right, but my hair isn’t curly enough. I’m actually the bodacious babe second from the left–sexy, thin, and ever so feminine!! Those of you who know me will chuckle. Those of you who have never met me, just keep this image in your mind, because it is certainly who I would LIKE to be. Grin.

Now that the introductions are out of the way, I do hope you will visit here often. I look forward to your comments.

    Yaaay Judy! What a beautiful new website! Visually it really fits your style. I’m impressed with all the writing blurbs you created. They really give a sense of the woman behind the art!

    Hey Judy- welcome to blog-land! Just wanted you to know that I picked you out first thing from the group portrait. Even with the longer hair . Your new website is beautiful, I especially like the ‘retrospective’, all the pieces I have remembered of yours for so long! Now, get in the blog habit- it works for me with coffee before I even brush my teeth!

    Hi Judy – I love your new website, the quilts look lovely. I am proud that you kept my website design so long. This new site is really elegant. My mom Sara Nephew (Clearview Triangle) is doing great, she is still doing some teaching and quilt markets since selling her business. I love your latest work is is radiant. I hope you are still doing the summer quilting courses. I will watch for more new designs.
    Yours, Elizabeth

    Oh my, it’s good to find your work again. Lost track of you a few years ago but when I saw a piece of yours at the International Quilt Show in Long Beach I knew that it was time to search for you. Thanks heavens for Google! I’m thrilled to see that you’re still creating your marvelous works-of-art! I bought your book “Curves” many years ago and fell in love with your work. Inspiring! So, get to blogging so that your fans can see and read more about you!

    Hi Judy! I came upon your blog while wandering around the internet! The site looks great. I hope you blog some more! The quote was funny, and sometimes I feel like that when I go to blog, and other times I just say what’s on my mind.

    Anyways, I don’t know if you remember me, but I came to quilt inn–was it just last year? It seems longer ago than that. Anyways, it was a great experience, learning from you, and visiting in Vermont. I still haven’t lost the weight I gained eating all that great food at the Inn!

    Hi Judy-How great to visit your site again and find the new update! I am a huge fan of your work and have just begun my second piece using your techniques. I was lucky enough to find a copy of your book a year or so ago and I became addicted. Even better to see the Quilt Inn workshop and will put it on my calendar for next year. Please keep adding to the blog. I am so excited about the website update!

    Hello Judy! Your new website is beautiful!! Just browsing around has put butterflies in my soul to start quilting again. I so enjoyed Quilt Inn the three years I went. So many good memories from being there! The quilting, the lake, the mountains, the good food–but mostly the quilting friends that I will always remember and cherish.

    Hi Judy, So pleased to read your blog when I visited Gloria’s site today. I think of our time at Asilomar often when I look at my finished “practically straight line curves” quilt, hanging over my sewing machine. Can’t wait to take a look at your new book. Brenda
