Once again, I was was asked to be part of the next season of Quilting Arts TV! I had some great projects that I worked on in secret between all of my work travel for the comic book industry.
This time, my friend Catherine Redford was also taping and she and I were able to travel together and do our tapings on the same day!
We got there and set up each segment onto trays, and then it was the LONG wait until it was our turn to tape.
I did four segments for the new season. I was really excited to show something really new and I hope I lived up to the challenge! I also did another dimensional sewing segment, which I hope you will all enjoy too!
We met bunches of people who were taping also, including Julia Wood, Michelle May, Susan Brubaker Knapp, and Max Hamrick. Just like that, it was all over, and we packed up to go home. But there’s more exciting stuff around the corner! I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
I went to tape for the new season of Quilting Arts TV last week on Good Friday. It was a GREAT Friday, if you ask me! I taped four segments. This was one of many projects that I have been secretly prepping for, as everything had to be made in triplicate.
I started off very early on Thursday, but it’s not the trip for the Mustang, which is still covered for the winter.
What a great staff they are, they made you feel comfortable and were super nice!
A peek into the studio. My friend, Lynn Krawczyk was taping that day!

After the taping I got to meet the amazing Marlene Glickman, who I went to dinner with after our segments taped.
I can’t wait until they air, which will be some time in the fall. I’m so grateful to have been asked to appear and hope you all enjoy when it comes out!
I’m more than a little overdue to talk about how my awesome class that I taught at Make It University in Houston went. I was riding that post-Houston “high” and then time just got away from me.
That said, you can’t really take pictures and stuff while you are teaching, so I am going to rely on my fab friends to fill in…
It’s hard to believe it went by in an hour. I feel like it was the fastest and slowest hour ever… But it was so worth it. I learned just as much as they did, I think!

|Making sure everyone’s project lit up was also important! We had 2 dud LEDs in the group. OOPS! I had it covered with extras, which means “Be prepared!” Pic by Judy Perez|

The season I am appearing in for my e-textile quilts is now available for pre-order! You know you want to run right over and get one today! I haven’t seen it yet and I’m sure I look fine but I have no idea what I said!
The cat’s out of the bag, I will be taping a couple of segments for Quilting Arts TV Series 800 while on location in Cincinnati!
I’m over the moon, of course, and I’m having a blast making my projects for the show.
Much of this is serendipitous as a result of my fabulous Houston trip, after which I didn’t think things could get much better!
Thanks so mcuh to all of you who encourage me along the way, I truly appreciate it!
