Hand dyed treasures for my 2nd Design Wall Monday

I spent 3 days in a Ricky Tims / Alex Anderson / Libby Lehman quilt seminar last week. What an informative and entertaining time I had with 650+ other quilters-- and there wasn't a sewing machine in site! I learned so many fun tips, tricks and techniques and saw so many fabulous quilts, I don't know which ones I'm going to try first!

There was a lot of stuff for us to buy in Ricky's 'store' but the biggest draw for everyone was the beautiful hand-dyed fabrics that Ricky Tims produces. They're pricy, ($27 a yard) but when you see Ricky's amazing quilts, you just have to buy some and attempt something with them yourself.

So this week I've put them up on my design wall for inspiration. Sometime soon, I hope you will recognize them in a fabulous new project of mine!
