Today, 12/12/12, is an exciting day for me as my instructional DVD Improvising Using Stacks of Solids goes on sale with the special issue of Modern Quilts by Quilters Companion.
My project, Revolutions is a modern spin on a traditional block. On the DVD, I take you through the process of colour and fabric selection; freeform cutting without a ruler; curved piecing without pins; and assembling and quilting your quilt. I haven’t see the magazine or DVD myself yet (gulp) but here’s a photo from filming in August:
In addition to my profile, project and DVD, Modern Quilts includes projects with profiles from:
- Jennifer Carlton Bailly (USA)
- Jenny Pedigo (USA)
- Siobhan Rodgers (Australia)
- Cynthia Muir (USA)
- Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr (USA)
and further projects from Australian designers: Claire Turpin, Cathy Underhil, Deborah Louie and Charlotte Dumensy. There’s also a feature on Denyse Schmidt.
To purchase the magazine and DVD, look in local newsagents or contact Universal www.universalshop.com.au (Tel: 1300 303 414).
I will have some stock, for in-person sales only, in the New Year.
DVD & We Love Colour! Giveaway
For Revolutions, I used Kona Cotton solids by Robert Kaufman that come in more than 200 colours:
In Australia, Kona Cottons solids are distributed by 2 Green Zebras along with the book We Love Color (see my earlier book review from my own library):
2 Green Zebras have kindly supplied a copy of We Love Color which I will bundle up with a copy of Modern Quiltsand my DVD for a special giveaway. (I have other giveaways coming up this week so be sure to check back!)
