Quilting Videos

I don't know about you but I learn better from videos.  While I was searching the internet today for a binding tutorial, I found this great YouTube channel from The Crafty Gemini.  Vanessa has a lot of videos ranging from quilting to cooking to gardening.   She also has a blog.

I was very impressed with her presence on camera.  Some quilting videos leave a LOT to be desired both in quality and teaching.  However, she was very professional and I could see exactly what she was doing.  I ended up watching both the binding tutorial as well as how to make a mini ironing board.

Ok, I'm off to finish the binding on a quilt or maybe even make a mini ironing board.  ;-)

A Quilt Finish

I got this one done a little while ago but needed to take pictures.  I used a Dilly Dally Jelly Roll by Me and My Sister Designs.

And the back:
I love making this pattern.  It's known as the Jelly Roll Race quilt.  It's so easy and quick and makes a great quilt to give as a gift.

A Day For Good-Bye

My last day at the Jaguars:
My friends (Alisa, Teresa and Kitty) ordered a beautiful basket for me.  I love those girls!

The staff presented this helmet to me that they had all signed.  I will treasure it.

I only cried a little (like every time I said good-bye to someone).  :-)

Anyway, on to bigger and better things.

Quilt pics coming this weekend, I promise.
