Nonnie’s Quilting Dreams

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

Color review of some of the literature

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, Quilts, Quilting and Tearing my Hair

Well I could post the podcast or I could post the show notes. I could not do both but if you follow my word press blog you will soon see a blog with pictures soon. I already posted pictures of the links to the books at wordpress.

Tonight I went to the guild and our speaker was Amy Davison a talented quilter, pattern designer from this area of Michigan. I will be devoting my next podcast and I am sure several blogs to her lecture. The topic: COLOR FOR QUILTERS...... honest I forgot she was giving this lecture. I must say it was one of the better more quilt based lectures on color I have ever attended. I enjoyed it and I learned a lot. I will let you know about the lecture when I get a chance to blog.

Check out her web site and patterns:

SHOW NOTES for episode 16: Charity Quilting

CITY QUILTS: 12 Dramatic Projects Inspired by Urban Views

Quilter's Academy Vol. 3 Junior Year: A Skill-Building Course in Quilt-making [Paperback]Harriet Hargrave (Author), Carrie Hargrave (Author)

Originally in this podcast I planned a QUILT DIARY, instead I plan to podcast after any sewing session of four hours or longer OR upon completion of a project. I am finding it difficult to podcast on a regular basis. I also feel I should not podcast unless I have done some sewing and my quilting time is limited. I hate being redundant or not having any project in progress. I think that leads to a boring podcast.

I sometimes feel I am talking to myself, because I rarely get comments. I really enjoy conversation with other quilters and had hoped to get more comments. Those comments always give me ideas for more blogging and podcast. So if you listen to the podcast please drop in and say HELLO and tell me what you are thinking and doing with your projects. THANK YOU, I think I am done WHINING .

More pictures of the ongoing charity quilting will be posted as I complete the projects on my WORD PRESS BLOG. I also hope to take pictures of the projects made by the other ladies in the group.

HAPPY QUILTING

#12: Not a lot quilting going on …

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, Quilts, Quilting and Tearing my Hair
I am testing my new computer, not sure I like the sound quality. I keep hearing noises in the background ... that may mean I need a different head set. Let me know what you guys think. 

Not a lot of quilting being done.... although I do (droan on) explain what I have been doing. ( See post over at the blog. ) I bought fabric for a secret project not to be disclosed until I have it over half done. It is still perculating in my brain. I also talk about PIXAR fabric from JoAnn's.

One picture worth a 1000 words

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in DefaultTag, Quilts, Quilting and Tearing my Hair

Last podcast I struggled to describe how to achieve an accurate size block. This video nails what I was trying to say in one demo. I found other videos by doing a YOU TUBE search. I have restrictive band width on my internet server so I cannot watch all of them but YOU should check them out if you have high speed internet. Production values vary and a person should be aware of bad advice but they are still fun to WATCH.. ...
