Quilting’s First-Ever Music Video

I’m so excited to share another quilting industry first with you:  quilting’s first-ever music video.  It features the 12 table runners in the Color Mastery Table Runner enhanced e-pattern series.  We had a lot of fun putting this together, and a big thank-you goes to my son, who really did the hard work.  He produced the original music in the video and put together all of the still photos.  He’s a talented guy, and it was fun to collaborate on this mother-son project.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did developing it.

Thanks for watching the Color for Quilters video. If you enjoyed it, please sign up below for my monthly newsletter that contains color tips, quilt designs, and a recipe.

Beautiful Mondays

Amicalola Falls on a Sunny, Fall day

Most people dread Mondays.  After all, they mean back to work, away from home and family.  And rainy Mondays are the worst – as it’s doing here in Georgia today (the photo is from Amicalola Falls on a sunnier day).

I’m deciding on a different outlook.  Mondays present a great day of opportunity.  Monday is a day to start fresh, with an entire week of possibilities ahead.  I can’t wait to see what this week brings.  I’m looking forward to new quilt design ideas, fun business opportunities, friendships, and time with my family during Fall break.

What opportunities await you this Monday?

Okay, here’s one:  I produced a new video on fall’s two hottest colors this season, and it’s over at my Color Mastery blog.  Check it out.  Who knows what possibilities await in your stash or the quilt shop?
