Lady of Shalott - Starts Sept 1, 2014

My new Lady of Shalott quilt is a three-month Block of the Month quilt. The design is reminiscent of Arhurian legend during the time of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The poem, The Lady of Shalott, by Alfred Lord Tennyson, is the basis for the first in a series of Arthurian quilts. 

Join me on the journey that begins September 1, 2014. The kits an patterns are available at the Ricky Tims Online Store.

The kit is available in two color ways.


And moving through a mirror clear

That hangs before her all the year,

Shadows of the world appear.

There she sees the highway near

Winding down to Camelot.

There she weaves by night and day

A magic web with colours gay.

She has heard a whisper say,

A curse is on her if she stay

To look down to Camelot.

Dubai to Hot Springs

I’ve just returned from Dubai where I had a fantastic time teaching four master class sessions to about 80 students on one day and the privilege of judging their quilt show on the next. My co-judge was Ina Meyer from South Africa. Dubai is a multi-cultural city with a tremendous number of Ex-pats working there. The women focus their time on patchwork and there were amazing quilts to see. The Desert Quilt Guild (formerly the Dubai Quilt Guild) works in conjunction with Classic Quilts and Quilting, a wonderful quilt shop owned by Shanker and Mala Ramakrishnan.

Here is a link to photos of the winning quilts in a ‘digital magazine’ format.

Below are photos I took while I was there. It was a short trip, but I made many wonderful friends and met fantastic quilters from all over the Middle East.

Check out the winners at the Dubai Quilt Show here.

From the desert in the Middle East to the Ozarks in less than a week! Woohoo!!!!

March was a busy month and after my "quick jaunt" to Dubai for the Dubai International Quilt Show I headed to Hot Springs Arkansas.

Our Super Quilt Seminar in Hot Springs might be history, but the memories and fun we had are sure to remain for many years. We appreciate the support of the host guild, Hot Springs Area Quilt Guild, and the presence of Hickory Hill Quilts. Alex Anderson and Melinda Bula were guest presenters. 

Below are some photos from the event. We sure hope to see you at an upcoming Ricky Tims Super Quilt Seminar.

A most unusual gift - a roll of toilet paper with the Arkansas Razorback's mascot logo and "Hawg Wipes" embroidered right on the roll!
