March 7, 2017 Q&A

3-7-17 Q&A with Shiny Happy WorldHere’s the live video Q&A from March 7 – now recorded and posted here for those not on Facebook (and those who want the version with all the empty time and fiddly bits edited out).

There was a storm rolling in just as the video started – which means the light was not great and the picture gets pretty pixelated at times – but I got the sound better this time!

Here’s the video.

And here’s a quick key to the questions I answered and links to some of the things I mentioned.

0:20 Am I going to make other animal lovies?

Yes – and I actually have since the video! You can find the bunny pattern here.

1:50 I talk about some new videos on the way.

They’re here now! You can find them at the links below.

How to Assemble a Quilt that Uses an Alternate Grid

How to “Quilt from the Center Out”

3:20 Which cat ended up winning the contest?

That remake of the Cats quilt pattern is finished.

This is the fabric bundle I mentioned with the pretty neutrals I was loving.

4:30 What kind of thread do I use?

These are the Sulky Petites I mentioned for Big Stitch Quilting and some hand embroidery.

This is the 12 wt. black thread I use for thicker outlining on my applique work.

6:30 I chatted about some new fabric bundles I’d like to introduce.

8:10 What handwork am I doing right now?

This is the Big Stitches and Patchy Patchwork class I mentioned.

10:15 What sewing machine do I use?

15:40 What am I working on right now?

I talked a LOT about the dinosaur quilt – still in progress. I showed some of my drawings, talked about working with a graphic designer to covert them to vector images, and talked about what comes next. You can see photos of my progress on Facebook and Instagram, and you can preorder the pattern here.

That’s it! the next live Q&A will be on Tuesday April 4 at 2 pm.

Happy sewing!
