Time Lapse Quilting with Todd DuBay from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Hello my quilting friends! Today I’m sitting down with Todd DuBay who makes awesome time lapse quilting videos. I hope this podcast inspires you to try out the time lapse setting on your phone and shoot a video as you make your next quilt!

I did have issues with color balance in this video and I’m investigating a new method for filming the screen. If the trippy color swirls are too much for you, simply listen to the podcast using this player or download it to your computer:

Hybrid quilt block from Pieced Brain

Good morning, quilting friends! Today I am bringing to you this 'hybrid' flower block. I call it hybrid because the leaves are foundation pieced and the flower is made with regular piecing. This is a perfect block for those who want to try their hand at foundation piecing: a small part of the work is done with that technique, the foundation piecing requires only one stitched line, and the quilter practices the basics before plunging into a project solely involving foundation piecing.

This is the back of one leaf. Notice a couple things: 1. I wrote the color of the ...

My wonderful friend Helen Stubbings is running a series this year on how we use quilting as therapy called 'Stitch Therapy 365'.

She challenges us to 'stitch just 5 minutes a day for 365 days'

365-flat

And to help us do that she had created this darling panel that you can stitch on each day! 

She does such cute drawings I think i'm going to have to join in. You don't have to start at the beginning, just start with the day you get the panel and stitch each day!

Sorry, No Podcast this Week! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Last week I shared a podcast titled, Do You Ever Sleep?! and this week I can do very little except sleep! I caught a bad cold over Easter that is really putting me through the wringer. All my plans for this week have gone out the window as all I seem to be able to do is sleep like Pickles all day:

Sleepy Pickles the Cat

Yep, this is about all I feel like doing too!

Be looking forward to a podcast episode next week and hopefully I’ll have kicked this bug and have lots of fun things to share.

When my friend Sheri  Cifaldi-Morrill of Whole Circle Studio came up with this amazing English Paper Piecing alphabet papers. She has a blog tour running and asked a variety of people with a variety of skill levels to join her by making a letter.
