It's Show Time!!

Hello Everyone,
Is your popcorn made?  Is the crowd ready to start heckling?  Today is the day that my series of Easy Patchwork Math begins on The Quilt Show.  Just click on the button and you will be magically transferred through cyberspace so we can spend a few minutes together. 
Today it's all about my favorite quilting tools, breaking down a block, and what the heck are components.  Go ahead, click on the button, I'll wait.  Please don't forget to come back!  The best thing is the segments are all FREE! You can watch them as many times as you want, and as often as you want.
Well welcome back.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to watch myself on video?  Do I really sound like that too?  Visit with me in the classroom section of TQS over the next few Fridays and you will learn a lot about quilting math and making components.

Each week you will be able to download formulas and cutting directions for sample blocks.  Each week will become progressively the process you will become a quilting mathematician and you'll never be afraid of quilting math again.

Speaking of components, Lil' Orphan Scrappy is officially a flimsy and she is full of components. This quilt was made using only Marcus Fabrics from my stash.  The largest piece of fabric is only 5-1/4" square. This is a great stash buster quilt.  Now to the pattern writing over the next couple of days.

Mazey wanted you too see her precious little face.  She is my little doll......a real handful.....but a cute handful.  We enjoyed our morning walk through the raindrops and a bit of thunder rolling through the mountains off in the distance.  Love it!  But what I don't love is being on the watch for coyotes and the occasional bear at 5:30am.

Enjoy your day and weekend.  I'll be spending mine at the computer.....along with walks in the woods.



  1. Wonderful! I learned a lot and enjoyed your teaching. I think I saw you discuss this on a segment on the Quilt Show before but I didn't really "get it". Now I do :-)
    Your instructions open up the door to more interesting blocks. Thank you!

  2. Love this 1st segment - a great review and whenever we need it!! There were a couple of "Oh yeah - I forgot that part" for me as I watched. Looking forward to them all.
    By the way, you could just call me Julia - but with so many of us it might be confusing!!!
    Great job Lynn :D

  3. Congratulations, Lynn! You're a born performer! Everything made perfect sense and I had to call Mr. Squash in to see Joe's prototype - you can tell Joe that he didn't see the boo-boo at all and had to ask where it was! Hmmm....I wonder what that tells me about Mr. Squash! Have fun at the cabin - and tell Mazey we miss her!

  4. Well done, Lynn! Congratulations!

  5. Great job, Lynn! And now you get to teach to a whole new set of students! But, of course, your long term students will stick with you forever! Looking forward to the next segment! Oh, and the quilt is gorgeous! And that's an especially cute picture of Little Miss Mazey!

  6. What a great video Lynn. You looked great and so calm. Did you hear me heckling? No, cos I sat and listened intently. So much so that I forgot my popcorn! Looking forward to the next show now.

    Mazey certainly does have a cute face, but hey, did you mention bears????

  7. I've said it before, I'll say it again, you are a natural. So well done!

  8. I loved your segment! And, am looking forward to the next segment. Well done!
