Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams

Quilting, rants and raves and I am sure I will talk to my grandson.

Episode 7 out of order … but posted !!!

Posted on January 15th, 2011

It has taken a couple of hours but I finally have a new podcast posted.  Like the old quilt adage.... finished is better than perfect.  Posted is better than left on my computer because I am never happy with the final results.  This podcast I evaluate patterns and try to find aspects I like and dislike.  I want to find elements that make patterns easier to understand, especially when working with new quilters.  YOUR INPUT would be greatly appreciated.

I usually slaughtered name of these talented designers but Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr are rapidly becoming favorites. They have designed for home furnishing and also sell commissioned quilts. Their new book is QUILTS MADE MODERN ,it has contemporary designs the majority using solid and tone on tone fabrics. I love their lessons on color theory, fabric selections, construction methods.  The main emphasis in their books is on design elements.  I am learning a lot, which is important to me as I am drafting / designing more and more my own quilts using elements from other patterns and designs.
