BMQ YouTube Series – Ep. 24: Virtual Trunk Show #13

This quilt is called Enter the Dreaming. It was commissioned by my older brother and his wife for their king-sized bed. It is officially the largest quilt I’ve ever made at this point. I definitely need a larger workspace before I attempt something this size again! Watch the video to find out about all the details!

BMQ YouTube Series – Ep. 23: Virtual Trunk Show #12

I’ve made a few quilts this last year, so I’m starting up my virtual trunk show videos again. This video showcases a quilt I actually made in late 2019, but I wasn’t able to show it earlier because I didn’t have it in my possession when I was making my original trunk show videos. But never fear! Here it is now! I call this one Spectrogasmic Therapy. Watch the video to hear more about it!

BMQ YouTube Series – Ep. 22: Amy Fung-yi Lee

I’m so happy that I finally got to interview someone in person again! This is an interview with artist Amy Fung-yi Lee. We chat about her work, her process, and creativity in general. It was very cool to conduct the interview in Amy’s home/studio and to see everything she’s been working on recently.

In this video, I show you some quilting tools that I kind of can’t live without. These are not the obvious ones like a sewing machine, rotary cutter, etc. These are tools that maybe you don’t absolutely need to make a beautiful quilt, but, man, do I find them super helpful! And rest assured I am not making any money in endorsements for these. (I mean, if someone wants to pay me for talking about their stuff, by all means, reach out. 😋) You can check out the links in the description section of the video to find out more about the items I discuss.

I completed this quilt in October of 2020. What should have taken me a couple weeks ended up taking six months because my creativity mojo has been hit hard by this sh**storm of a year. This quilt is playing with the contrast of traditional and contemporary styles. I have named it Traditional Decay. Watch the video to find out what inspired me to create it!

This is a very short video about my Rooftop Water Towers quilt. You can find out much more about this quilt by watching Episode 06, where I show you how I made it from beginning to end.

This trunk show video shows my version of the #BrooklynConnectedQAL challenge we put together for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild back in March and April of 2020 to help keep our guild members connected during the lockdown. I had made a few tutorial videos to give our quilters options as far as creating standard ruler-cut blocks or improv-pieced blocks. I decided to do both and then mashed them together! Watch the video to see the result!

In this next trunk show video I talk about the creation of BK Snaps, which I created to hang in the 2020 Brooklyn Quilters Guild quilt show. Unfortunately, the quilt show had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so this is your chance to see the quilt up close and personal!

This is another long episode because I’m talking about six quilts. These are mini quilts, all created based on prompts. I love making mini quilts because I can really experiment with ideas and techniques without committing to a full quilt. I highly recommend making them!! I’ve listed the names of the quilts and the time they appear in the video in the Description box on my YouTube channel, just in case you want to jump to one in particular.

The next quilt in my virtual trunk show is called Baby’s First Chevron. This quilt was gifted long before I shot this video, so I can only show photos. I made this quilt out of a collection of chevron blocks that were made by members of the Brooklyn Quilters Guild for one of our block of the month raffles. Because I wanted the finished quilt to be bigger than the number of blocks I received, I decided to use this as an opportunity to design a more contemporary-looking quilt with a lot of negative space. Thank goodness for my design wall!!
