My Trip to Tape for Quilting Arts TV!

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.

blogp2It’s 6 hours from Chicago to Cleveland, so I made a stop for provisions and carried on.  It went by so fast, I was pretty excited to get there.

Beachwood Studios is where the magic happened.

What a great staff they are, they made you feel comfortable and were super nice!

blogp7Here’s all my projects laid out.

A peek into the studio.  My friend, Lynn Krawczyk was taping that day!

blogp8In the green room, I got to try out the Bernina I would be using on set with the amazing Jeanne Cook Delpit.  She’s a fabulous teacher, and she showed me the ins and outs of that fab machine!

blogp5Here I am bright and early the day of taping.  Yes, that is a huge blemish that appeared on the end of my nose.  Typical, right?

blogp9In the green room, the project is screened as it tapes and between takes it is stopped, and we always have funny looks on our faces.

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!
