Modern Machine Quilting DVD Blog Hop: Day Seven

I hope you are enjoying my first ever blog hop. If you are new to my blog, “Welcome! I am so glad you have joined me.” If you’ve been following me for a while, I hope you have made some new friends…

Today is day seven. Who better to have for day seven than Chicago School of Fusing Dean of Corrections, fused art quilt maven, Laura Wasilowski? I can’t remember the first time I actually met Laura. I had watched her on TV in the days of Simply Quilts and tried lots of her techniques. I’d probably even taught using some of Laura’s patterns before we actually came face to face…

Here’s one happy student and her grandma after assembling their version of Laura’s Watering Can quilt.

Laura is a lot of fun. She is a member of PAQA although she is so busy teaching that she doesn’t often get a chance to visit. I got this picture at Rosemont this year with some of our PAQA friends.

Just last week I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Laura’s house with some more quiltie friends. I got Laura to pose for a special photograph.

Laura is fun. She hand dyes yards and yards of fabric and thread each year which she uses for her quilts and sells on her travels. She has three books, a Craftsy class, a QATV workshop DVD… It’s hard to keep up! So I am very happy that she has taken the time to watch my DVD and post on her blog about it.

You can see what she has to say today and then come back here to comment for a chance to win one of my new DVDs. Now that I have received so many comments I have decided to draw two lucky winners. I’ll be posting their names on the day after Christmas and contacting them via e-mail as long as I have their addresses. Maybe you’ll be a winner but if not you can purchase the DVD or digital download (available instantly) at the Interweave store… just click on the button at the side and you’ll be taken straight there.

Where to find all my friends and their blogs? Here’s the complete list. Enjoy!

    She mentioned plaids – that sounds lovely, but definitely above me right now!

      Jess, Plaids are just a fancy name for grids with two colors. You could do them!

    I never want to machine quilt because I am confident I will mess it up and be disappointed. Your DVD sounds like the answer to my fears and concerns. Glad to have found out about you and your DVD.

    Thank you for pointing me in her direction! I’ve signed up to follow her 🙂 your DVD sounds wonderful. I have tried to quilt on my machine with absolutely no luck. I end up picking it all out and then quilting by hand. I’d love to do some of them on my machine.

    I just found your blog and read about your new DVD on quilting. I like to do quilting on my home sewing machine and often do straight line quilting, cross hatch. Your DVD looks great.
