Block of the Month, A Quilt Along with Sue,,,Day 11 - Blog Post Challenge

Do you get bored with your projects midstream?  Do you have more UFOs than finished projects this year?  I have the worst case of bright, shiny object syndrome of any quilter I know!  But you would be so proud of me! 

Do You EQ? Electric Quilt has Received a Face Lift. Blog Challenge Day 8

eq8

Over the years I have been slowly learning how to use the Electric Quilt software  This week we installed an upgrade to our EQ software, EQ8.  Kari Schell is my EQ expert.  I met Kari at CABS, the Creative Arts Business Summit that I went to last year.  The best thing about CABS was meeting such wonderfully knowledgeable people. In the last year, my knowledge of drawing appliqué blocks has grown by leaps and bounds with Kari's guidance.

Biking and Quilting on this beautiful Fall New England Day!

Bike quilt from Houston

It is a bright, clear, beautiful morning here in New England.  I am waiting for the temp to warm up so I can go for a bike ride with my hubby Jeffrey today.   This is something we try to do once a week, granted I am not traveling, there is no snow on the ground and the temperature is above 40 degrees.  If you are not from around here, you may think that 40 degrees is a little cold to get out on your bike!  But in New England if it is sunny and bearable, it is best to get outside and enjoy the beautiful state we live in!  If I don't get a little outdoor tim

Appliqué Tip of the Week: Watch YouTube for a refresher course on SPD techniques

Next stop – Syracuse, NY – AQS Quilt Week July 27-30

Who else is going to AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse?  Joanne and I will be in booth # 1821 with all our Sue Pelland Designs products.  We do demos all day long so stop by and learn about the Leaves Galore and Hearts and More templates.  Even if you’ve seen our demos before, we are always adding new tips and techniques to our talk so it is worth a stop.

Why I love my job…

The best thing about being me is getting to go to work every day and meet other quilters. This upcoming month gives us so many opportunities to do just that!

Teaching for quilt guilds is one of the best parts of my job. I have belonged to only three guilds in my 35 years of quilting, but each of them feels just like a family reunion when I visit. When I teach at your guild, I immediately feel like you have adopted me as a honorary “sister”. I love it when I hear you all laughing and joking in the way Quilting Sisters do when they get together.
