I'm branching out a little.
Sometimes it's just easier to show you
than to write it all out under a still shot.
So this is for "Weedy" who asked about setting up to hand-quilt.
I would love your feedback.
Also, if there is something you have a question about,
feel free to ask.
I might not know the answer,
but can share what I do or offer a resource if I know of any.
There are times when seeing how someone else
does something helps us to figure out what we have going on.
*I called it "stencil fabric" should be "stencil material."
Also, will work on eliminating the sound "uh" from my vocabulary :-)
I actually did my hair and put on make up
knowing I wasn't going to film myself.
I'm a bit camera shy.
If this is a positive way to share information,
I will relax a little "on screen."
Thanks for watching.
A good video. It was nice hearing your voice. I think you speak very well. I could tell you were a little nervous at first. I don't blame you I would be stuttering and sputtering. I have always wondered about one of those big round quilting frames that is on a stand. Have you tried one of those. It looks like a huge hoop on a stand. I don't quilt. I just like tools. ;)ReplyDelete
I like those as long as the hoop isn't so big I can't reach to the middle. I do like a frame or stand especially for larger pieces so the weight of the quilt isn't being held up by my arm. :-)Delete
That was cool, you're a brave soul, and you did a good job of it.ReplyDelete
It was lovely to listen even though I'm not a quilter. My hands don't hold onto needles very well, but I do think it interesting.
Thank you. I was thinking of a couple other demos., but am not that brave yet:-)Delete
You have the right tone of voice (not irritating, lol) and your method is good so I think you should go for it. For every demo out there, there are thousands who could benefit from them.Delete
Oh why didn't you turn the camera around????? -sigh- Especially after doing your hair and makeup! -smile- Please do, the next time.ReplyDelete
Can't seeeee you, but your voice is very pleasing. And this in itself, is a lovely quality. Some women's voices are... Anything but pleasing, sadly. And less so, the more excited they become. -smile-
I do hope that those who quilt, will be happy with your instructions.
Awe, you're so sweet. I might at some point, but wanted to dip my toes in before plunging:-)Delete
Lady Locust, Thank you! You did a great job on this demonstration. WeedygardenReplyDelete
Oh good! I hope that's sort of what you were after.Delete
Why thank you Darling;-)Delete
I'm not a hand quilter I'm afraid - although if I were to do a small-ish quilt I might consider it. I'd far rather play with embroidery for some reason.ReplyDelete
It's exactly the same but different - heehee Needle and thread is just a good thing.Delete
You are a natural! You did a very good job for a first. I was just aching to start sewing! The quilt will be a beauty!ReplyDelete
Ah! but you have been getting so much accomplished! And all so lovely.Delete
You have such a nice voice and did a great job. I could never do anything like that. Your quilt will be beautiful!ReplyDelete
You did a wonderful job with the video, and have a really lovely voice! I enjoyed hearing your process, and although I don't plan to do a full hand quilt anytime soon, I will definitely come back to watch your video when I do. Thankful that we've connected again! Blessings to you :)ReplyDelete
You did wonderfully, Lady Locust. I agree with others, you have a very friendly, lovely voice.ReplyDelete
I've always wondered how big quilts were done. :)
I hope you do more videos.
Thanks for sharing. I loved to hand quilt, but I started getting carpel tunnel. My husband got me a quilting sewing machine. I miss hand quilting. You did a great video.ReplyDelete
Oh, you did a wonderful job and you have such a sweet voice! My grandma always quilted in a hoop (which I have), so it was interesting to hear how you do it. I greatly admire those who quilt! Someday when I "grow up" I intend to try it ;). But I do agrees with other commenters- I wish you would have popped into the frame, fixed hair and all, so I'd have a face to put with the voice! But this is a wonderfully brace start :)ReplyDelete
Your video is well done! Lots of good information and we could see what you were talking about as you explained. I really like your quilt too. Lovely colorway. Will we get to see a pic when it's done?ReplyDelete
