Today has been busy…
But now I’m home from mailing some guild class samples AND my QuiltCon entry and I can finally sit down and catch up with all the other stuff…
January 7th was my mom’s birthday. She would have been 83 today. I think she might have enjoyed watching my latest DVD but she would have had lots of comments on what I could have done better… and of course, she would have been right… but I’ve watched it three times now and I have to say I’m very OK with it!!
Modern Machine Quilting: Free Motion, designed for all you “too timid to stitch” quilters out there or “tried it and didn’t enjoy it” quilters, or maybe “just want to be better” quilters.
When I started making quilt tops back in 1998 I realized that I needed to learn to machine quilt if I was going to be able to finish my quilts in a timely manner. I took lots of classes and did lots of practice. It takes practice people!! Just like driving a car, and 90% of Americans drive cars…
So, today marks the start of my blog hop. Each day for the next eight days one of my quiltie friends is going to be blogging about the DVD. They have sat and watched it in all its 79 minutes of edu-tainment glory and I’m hoping they’ll have something nice to say about it!!
I’ll be writing each day too, with a little about our quilting connection and also some pictures and such of the quilts shown on the DVD.
At the end of the eight days I’ll have a wrap up post. Each day you can comment at the end of my post and we’ll have a drawing at the end of the time for some fabulous prizes… DVDs of course, but also my favorite Stella task lamp donated by Stella lighting and Julia Wood’s wonderful new Hexie love ruler. (I really want one of those!!)
So, here’s the schedule.
And just in case you can’t wait to try and win one, of course the DVD is available at the Interweave Store right now. If you are really in a hurry a digital download could be on your very own computer in minutes if you so wish.
I hope you enjoy the hop. Please tell your friends so they can join the fun too!
