BMQ YouTube Series – Ep. 21: Top Ten Tools

BLACK LIVES MATTER — Please click on the link to find out what you can do to help end the oppression and killing of our fellow human beings.

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.

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!!

This fourth video takes us on a little tour of the first bed-sized quilt I ever made — Caged Cacophony. It kind of all happened without any real plan at the beginning. In fact, I didn’t even plan on making a bed-sized quilt when I first started working on it. I’m a big fan of flying by the seat of my pants when it comes to designing and making quilts, and this quilt epitomizes that philosophy. Watch the video to learn more!

BMQ YouTube Series – Episode 8: Unboxing Video from Bluprint

It’s time for my second unboxing video! I am very sad to say that Bluprint is no longer in operation. Back when it was Craftsy, I took the How to Quilt: Cozy Throw Quilt with Amy Gibson class and made my very first quilt. They had a big going-out-of-business sale at the end of May, so I ordered a bunch of yardage to have on hand for quilt top backgrounds and quilt backs as a birthday treat.
