The Launch 

A whole new game

Well, here we go!  I have been working on a new website to host my online courses.  It has taken me quite a while and a pile of brain cells to get this incredible website set up (I might be a little biased on the whole incredible thing).  Along with the new site I will be hosting my very own longarm courses.  I currently have my first course on offer for $49.00 until January 15th, 2023.  Check it out here if you are interested in Longarm Quilt Design.

I had a blog so many years ago and realize with this new website and becoming a course creator it was time to revitalize my keyboarding skills and get to writing again. I spend most of my time now in the longarm studio stitching out custom designs on my client's quilts and I think I would like to share the struggles and successes. 

Christmas is coming up in a couple of days and I decided to make up a quilt for the couch.  The kids are teenagers now and we needed a bigger quilt to fit all of us under it while we drink hot chocolate and watch silly Christmas movies.  I started digging through my stash and found only the absolute worst of ugly Christmas fabrics.  I decided to send out a request to the local quilters and see if anyone had anything better they were willing to part with... I ended up with even more of the nasty, gawdy, paisley stuff.  When I say more, I mean heaps.  

A quick technique came into my mind that I had seen recently, it was time to just make the thing.  This technique isn't as 'quick' as it seems.  Here is a link to a youtube video.  There are a lot of videos on this technique and I just had to try it because I am all about a fast quilt.  The only part that I did differently was adding the snowballs. 

Although I did repeat the process quite a few times and ended up with huge 18" blocks.so I decided to dub this quilt the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" quilt.  Here is an adorable photo of my dogs Argo (olde english bulldogge) and Rhino (frenchie).
