Quilt Room Tour – Prairie Quilt Guild

Quilt Room Tour – Prairie Quilt Guild

Saturday was the big Quilt Studio Tour, put on by the Prairie Quilt Guild. The guild sold over 200 tickets to tour 6 homes in the Wichita area. Thank you thank you to all the ladies (and 4 gents) who stopped by my studio. My studio was on the tour. I know you’ve seen a couple studio pictures on the blog before, but as with everything- the room is ever-evolving. For the tour, though, I actually had quilts displayed all over the living room and dining room of the house, as well as, having the studio clean and open to guests. (below) I arranged 4 quilts on my stair rail for display. Right when guests walked in, they could also see a couple sewing machines on my plant ledge. Other sewing machines are in my living room, on that plant ledge. You can see those in the video. I also laid quilts over the back of my couches, and I did end up covering the kitchen table with a quilt too. I’m telling you, there were quilts EVERYWHERE. Then, onto the studio. Studio notes: My design wall, is a cork board covered in flannel. My chair is a floor model from IKEA, covered with IKEA fabric. My large uniform fabric stash is now stored downstairs. All the bright fabrics are organized by color, in two (stacked) Target cubby organizer things. The neutrals and cut pieces are mostly in the closet. The “cutting line” for those large scissors is really just electrical tape. The black and white photo is of my grandparents, on their wedding day, July 6th, 1945. I have a big glass bowl on the window sill that holds a few scraps. And- my friend tells me she purchased the shelf buddies from this website http://www.collectionsetc.com/ I didn’t make every quilt on display in my home/studio. – – Wow. That was a bunch of disjointed sentences, right?? Then at 9a, the room filled with ladies and continued to have to have a pretty steady flow of over 200 guests, right up until 4p, when the tour ended. Y’all, let me tell you- there were more people at the Quilt Room Tour, in my house, than there were at...

Thanks to Gene over at Gene Black an Alabama Artist, I found out about the AccuQuilt Videos pages! What a great resource! Previously, I’d just browse through youtube after doing an “accuquilt”? or “accuquilt go” search. Now, they have everything all in one tidy, categorized spot. Gene’s video is one of the TOP videos listed on their “Top Videos” page. I started clicking around and I even found my own video tutorial linked on their page. This is the video for the Nested Circles Doll Quilt. Its a super easy pattern using raw-edge fusible applique and a nifty little masking technique to cut the nested circles. What a fun find on the webs today! If you’ve made a video for your Accuquilt cutting system, head on over there and get yours...
