Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
By now I hope you are all in tune with our upcoming seminar instructor, Pat Sloan. You now perk up for her ads in magazines, have visited her blog, maybe listened to a podcast or two. Great!
In 2014 we’ll be hosting another live wire in the quilting world, Bonnie Hunter. You may know I am a big fan of scrappy quilts, love this quote at Bonnie’s site: “If it’s still ugly, you just didn’t cut it small enough!!” She has been the force behind www.quiltville.com for some time now. Over at the Quilty Pleasures blog, from Quiltmaker magazine, Bonnie is featured today. Take a moment to “meet” another one of our instructors-to-be. There are links to her site and to her feature called Quiltcam. As you might expect, it’s a video cam in her studio which she will sometimes make live while she is sewing. Apparently she narrates and “chats” with you while she sews. I haven’t seen this one yet so it’s now on my list. Bonnie offers loads of free patterns at her site, and has recently started a free mystery quilt there too, if that is something you enjoy.
BTW, Pat Sloan, also has a video feature from her studio now and then. It’s fun to watch a “pro” work at the design wall, peek in on the decision making in some projects. They puzzle it out with colors and patterns just like we do.
More baking on the slate for today. Gotta get those cookie trays filled and ready for weekend delivery!
