Two Tip Tuesday – Designer Tips rescheduled and Zoom

First, the Designer Tips & Techniques has been rescheduled to next week! They will be June 16, 17 and 18. Most will stay the same but we are waiting on some switches and final lineup. I will be presenting on June 17th at 3pm. (This is a different day and time for me than before.) I will post the list as soon as I get it later this week.

I was a presenter for the Virtual Quilt Market last week!  How do you show ALL your quilts when we aren’t in a convention center?  Why you lay them in your yard!  These quilts represent the 14 “Brilliant” and “Tool” patterns and variations I have designed using Brilliant Bindings.  It was fun to show them all!

I taught my first Zoom class on Saturday.  It was a wonderful success.  We made the Brilliant Ribbon Pillow that is a free download on my website.  It was a way for several to experience Zoom for the first time!  I had fun sharing demos on the steps and seeing the progress of everyone’s finished ribbons.  We had many different color combinations and all held a special place with each who made them.  Brilliant Bindings was used to cut the ribbon tails!  Unfortunately, I missed getting photos of my screen with everyone sharing their finished ribbon.  Below is the photo from my pattern.

If you need a quick gift this is a great option.  You could even make a dozen or so and put them into a quilt.  You can find the pattern HERE.   The pillow is not to be confused with the Brilliant Ribbons Quilt!  A great pattern for using up 2 1/2″ strips/scraps.

I hope you enjoy making ribbons.

Stay tuned for classes I will be teaching on Zoom.  Below is a behind the scene look at how I set up for the Zoom class.

Behind the scene

  3.  A ladder, a tool box and a storage box for height that has my ipad as the demo camera.

HA!  Some tips for filming/demo-ing on Zoom!

in quilting,
