My goal for 2018 is to blog weekly. I have a lot going on in 2018 so it should be a fun adventure for us.
For the last couple of days I have been trying to move a couple of BOM projects forward. My guild, Cheshire Quilter's Guild, BOM is called Starstruck and will have 20 different star blocks. I am creating YouTube videos showing the piecing for each block. There is only 1 block in the first installment. The video is done and ready for its premiere. The second video is shot but I haven't transferred to my computer for editing yet. My plan is to stay a month ahead so I need to get busy with shooting and editing the third one also. It si important to note that the videos are not stand-alone. You will need to download the instructional pdf each month. The instructional pdfs will be free for 2 months. After that you can download them for $2. I've included a sneak peek of Starstruck below.
The second BOM is a collaborative project with another Studio 180 Designs Certified Instructor. We are still working out the details but I think you will be pleased with the result. Like the guild BOM, this project will offer alternative settings and plenty of blocks for practicing your piecing using the various Studio 180 Designs tools.
Another item keeping me busy on the computer is a pattern that will be in the July 2018 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.
