2-7-17 Video Q&A – the recording

hello? Live Q&A sessions with Wendi Gratz from Shiny Happy WorldI do my live video Q&As on Facebook, but not everyone is on Facebook and not everyone can tune in to them live. So here’s a recording! With all the boring bits edited out. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s still long – almost 30 minutes – so here’s a quick annotation if you’d like to skip to certain questions.

0:00 Do you pre-wash your fabric?
2:55 Have you ever used a longarmer?
3:41 Can you recommend a good machine for Free Motion Quilting?
6:00 What do you listen to while you work? Music? Audiobooks?
7:20 What size sashing do you use for your blocks?
8:30 A comment recommending a machine for Free Motion Quilting
9:30 How do you design your patterns? I give an example from a current project.
21:08 A question about the quilt blocks hanging behind/above me.
24:30 A nice comment about my husband’s books. ๐Ÿ™‚

I highly recommend the section at 9:30 about how I design my patterns. I shared an extended sneak peek at a new project I’m currently working on and wildly in love with. ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s an image and a link for the question about sashing. I was recommending the wonky sashing I taught in my Cute Quilt As You Go Applique Monsters class on Craftsy.ย These guys busting out of their wonky sashing are one of my favorite examples of what that can look like. ๐Ÿ™‚

Monster quilt blocks busting out of their sashing frames! So much fun!

That’s all! I’m going to try to do one of these every month – so the next one will be Tuesday March 7 from 4-4:30 pm eastern time. Mark your calendars!

Happy stitching!
