Do You Watch Online Quilt Shows??

Hello all! I know it's been awhile since I posted. I have no excuse to give you. So instead of dwelling on what I haven't done, I decided to move on and post a little today. I was wondering if the readers could help me? Here's my question:

Do you watch online quilt shows? If so, which ones and are they helpful? The reason I asked is that during "National Quilt Day" weekend, the Quilt Show was free the entire weekend! I took full advantage of the shows. At one point in my life I did subscribe to QNN, however I've found that I like the Quilt Show a little better. I am a subscriber of "Craftsy". I like the fact that once you sign up/subscribe, you can watch the show as many times as you like. I also like the fact that it never expires. So, that my questions to you. Share your feed back with me.

For those who listen to my podcast, the show notes for episode #17 can be found at, you can listen there as well. I will be posting some pics of the things I talk about here.

Here's my complete table runner top! I used Deb Tucker's Rapid fire ruler for this. If you recall this was the "emergency" that caused me to break my fabric diet. Speaking of fabric diet, it has been 29 days.

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen this completed top.

It's the "Pocket Full Of Pinwheel" quilt top by Riley Blake, Freckle Whimsy. If you would like to see the tutorial, here's the link:

Command Strips! The best invention when you don't want to put holes in your walls. Perfect for renters. Well, this is what I am now using to hand some of my quilting tools.

Last but not least. I am planning yet another project. I have a "New York Beauty" quilt/wall hanging on my mind! Of course it will be a paper piece project. You almost have to with those pointy point. It's a known fact that I still struggle with precision when piecing. I have the add a quarter ruler, foundation paper piecing paper by Carol Doak and I am ready to give it a whirl.

Well, I think this will be it. I had more to say than I thought!!! So, stay tuned to see what's next.

Until next time...........
