TODAY’S OPEN LINE QUESTION–DO YOU MAKE SAMPLES?

Here are a few of my samples to test thread and batting…

Samples take the guess-work out of quilting!

But sometimes we are in a hurry to just get quilting…

What about YOU?

Do YOU make samples before you start quilting?

Do YOU wash the samples too?

Have YOU ever been surprised or disappointed by how your quilt looked when you finished it?

We’d LOVE to hear!

May YOUR quilt adventures bring YOU happiness!

Craftsy Filming Day!

Craftsy TeamGood Morning, Quilters!

On the top of my planner, there is a little box labeled:  Today’s Focus. For the past several weeks I have filled it in with Craftsy!  I have worked with the talented editors at Craftsy to write an outline, then a script and then tweak and  tweak the script while we added quilts and graphics to highlight each topic.  When we weren’t writing, I was sewing.

Finally, Craftsy! week is here!  I flew in to Denver on Tuesday and yesterday we had rehearsals and shot still photos of the quilts.  It was hard work, but the Craftsy team is both professional and fun!

I know from previous experience that today’s filming will be hard work!  It is hard enough to remember what I’m trying to convey…but to have to be sure to look at the right camera and point slowly so the camera can follow and then not sound like a robot…argh!

One of the tricks from the producers is to think about actually talking to someone-so I will be talking to you, gentle reader!  I will be thinking of you!

CraftsyPlease think of me and send positive quilting vibes my way!

Perhaps you could all take a moment to quilt or doodle….

I’m sure it will help!

May YOUR day be filled with terrifying exciting adventure!
