The Quilt Show Taping

I have just returned home from Colorado Springs where my quilts were taped for the upcoming season of 'The Quilt Show' with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. It was a wonderful fun day were I got to share my quilts and teach a few techniques about stitching and embellishing wool. The filming crew were fabulous along with Alex and Ricky. My show was filmed in the morning and Michelle Jacksons was in the afternoon.
We filmed the show at the lovely home of Barb and Bob Normoyle. They were very gracious to allow us to move furniture and hang quilts around their home which had a breath taking view of the mountains.
They featured my new 'Crimson Tweed' quilt as well as Robin Run the Hedge and Magnolia as backdrops to the interview.
I made many step outs showing the progression of embellishing leaves which I shared in my demo section. We talked about all the wonderful hand dyed threads I use. Along with the fun stitches.
The threads and yarns were a feast for the eyes. So much color and texture!
Normally it takes about a year before the online show will air. But I am very excited as they needed an additional feature for the upcoming series (Episode 810) so mine will be available for viewing Monday May 9 As one of my newsletter members you will be able to view the show for free for one week and then have the opportunity of signing up for the show at a 20% discount. If you do not already receive my newsletter please make sure you sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of my website page
I am really excited to launch my new book for Spring Market and have it be featured on the 'Quilt Show' when it is so new.
I shared the day with a wonderful Art Quilter Michelle Jackson from Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Many thanks to everyone who made this day a success. And a special thanks to Shelly, Lilo, Alex and Ricky.
I feel so fortunate to be able to make a living doing something I am so passionate about. The best part about it is I still love every stitch I make.
Keep Creating
