I have some exciting news! I've been asked to teach again at Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane Nursery in September.
I'll be teaching Once Upon a Vine on Thursday, September 25th. For more information click HERE.
To be listed on the same page with Laura Nownes, Jean Wells, and Sally Collins is a huge honor! Little did I know when I took my first drafting class from Laura eons ago, it would take me this far in the world of quilting.
I've been quiet lately as I have my nose to the grindstone preparing for my taping for The Quilt Show.com which is going to take place on June 29th at the San Jose Quilt and Textile Museum. My segment will not be "on air" until November or the first of next year.
I received my outline from the producer of everything we discussed in a long phone conversation. I'll be doing a segment on Patchwork Math and a segment on Country Charmer. The segments are short, only about 14 minutes each, so I have to be brief and concise. During the Country Charmer segment, I'll be discussing fabric selection and show how to use one of my favorite tools, the corner trimmer.
In the Patchwork Math segment, I'll show how I take a complex block and break it into components and resize them.
The first part of the taping will cover my background in Geography, and then some of my quilts will be featured. If you are familiar with The Quilt Show, you know that sometimes there is an "after show". There is going to be an after show segment during my taping and it is going to focus on our cabin. The producer requested that I send photos of the cabin with my quilts......so I did, and now the cabin is going to be part of the show also.
Mr. Joe and I conducted our own personal photo shoot of my quilts and other quilts I've made over the years hanging in and around the cabin.
I am sitting at the dining room table as I write this blog posting. The breakfast sign says, "Open 6am". Now that we have little Mazey, it should read, Open at 5am....or 4am! She wakes up just as the sun starts thinking about making an appearance. Before I take her outside, I always check for critters before we proceed. Do you know how hard it is to contain a wiggling, 10 week old puppy with a small bladder?
