I follow Cristy Fincher's blog over at Purple Daisies Quilting. (For those of you who don't know, Cristy is Sharon Schamber's daughter. Her blog is called "Sew Much Like Mom.") Well...today, as I was browsing my favorite blogs, I saw that she mentioned a Back to School Blog Hop. It started on September 1, 2015, so you haven't really missed much yet. For this blog hop there is nothing to make and nothing to print out. This blog hop is a good way to brush up on some quilting skills and maybe learn some new tips and tricks along the way. There looks to be a great line up of sewing/quilting pros to share their expertise. Each day from September 1-October 3, 2015, a new topic will be presented. (That's A LOT of information!) She says the hop is hosted by Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio. You should check out both of these blogs if you get a chance. Either of these links will take you to the full lineup of upcoming informational blog posts.
These are just SOME of the topics I'm really looking forward to. (I have already checked out "So, Does that Diagonal Method for a Pieced Backing Really Work." It was VERY informative.)
- Color coding for paper piecing--September 4.
- How to keep a perfect 1/4" seam between different machines--September 7.
- Fast pieced applique--September 8.
- Make a mobile art kit--September 10.
- Zipper tips--September 12.
As I typed out these first five, I realized there are WAY too many topics I'm interested in to list them all here. Maybe this small peek at my "must-see" list will entice you to check it out. Which topic are you looking forward to the most?
