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.
- Brilliant Ribbons on my quilt rack.
- 2 daylight bar lights.
- A ladder, a tool box and a storage box for height that has my ipad as the demo camera.
- Steps dropped on the floor once they were shown.
- ALL set up in the middle of my new found studio in my family room.
HA! Some tips for filming/demo-ing on Zoom!
