A week from tomorrow I will leave the White Mountains of Arizona and fly to Boston to meet up with my daughter, and then the following day we will fly across the Atlantic to spend 10 days in Great Britain. Needless to say, I’m really excited about this trip! My last trip to Great Britain was 35 years ago, when I was 18. This trip is a long time in the making!
Tips and Tricks for Better Machine Quilting
Well, after my last blog discussing copyright issues in the world of quilting, I decided to do something a bit more lighthearted (and brief) this go-around. So, I thought I’d talk a bit about the strange relationship between quilters and cats, quilts and cats, cats and quilts, cats and quilters...
“Copyright”; that’s a term heard often these days, but what does it all mean? Believe me, I really don’t know all the answers, but it’s a subject I’ve been wanting to toss around for a long time, and Facebook just didn’t seem like quite the right forum. So I’m going to address some of the issues here, and I HOPE that you all will chime in at the end of the article and make comments or suggestions. I think it’s important that we all become more learned on the subject.
When I started my latest quilt (Asian Arcs), as I was working on it, I began to wonder how other quilters choose their next project.
For me, after I complete a “show” quilt, I usually feel completely spent and mentally fatigued, so I just want to work on a “no-brainer” quilt just to enjoy the process, the colors, the fabrics.
I’d have to venture a guess that there’s not a quilter in this country that hasn’t heard of the “Road to California” annual quilt show in Southern California. It takes place every January in Ontario, CA. I’ve attended a lot of the “big” shows, and this certainly ranks up there in the top 5 in the country, and is definitely #1 in the state of California.
I’ve been entering quilts at “Road” since 2002, and have some fun and interesting stories to share with you about those entries.
