Happy Wednesday! I thought I'd start off today's post by sharing the three Moda bundles I couldn't live without from Sample Spree. Clockwise from left are Simply Style by V & Co., Potluck by Sandy Klop, and Sunnyside by Kate Spain! My Moda booth post is almost finished, and I'll share it tomorrow.
One of the booths I visited while at market was the Craftsy booth. I've enjoyed writing for Craftsy for the past few months and have also been taking some Craftsy classes. The lectures from QuiltCon are also free on the Craftsy site. To watch the QuiltCon lectures for free you'll just need to register for an account (You can do that here).
I'm also currently taking Camille Roskelley's Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple and have also signed up for Sara Fielke's Scrap Quilting: Big Techniques from Small Scraps.
What I like about the Craftsy classes is that they are available to you whenever and forever. You can watch just a segment or sit down and watch the whole class. Then if you want to review something or watch it again, you can. It's so easy, and it's like having a personal instructor "on call!"
The classes also come with pattern downloads. I'm really looking forward to playing with these two classes this summer.
And now for my first post-market giveaway! One of my favorite designers in the quilting world is Heather Mulder Peterson. I always love her fresh ideas and inspirations for fabrics. At this market she debuted her newest book, Angles with Ease and a ruler to go along with it! When I purchased my copy and ruler at Sample Spree she gave me an extra set to give away to one of my readers! I didn't get any pictures of Heather's booth...but you can see the quilts in this book on Heather's blog here and here.
To enter the giveaway, simply let me know what your quilting goals are for this summer! I'll keep the giveaway open through Friday evening!
Thanks so much for stopping by...and I'll be back tomorrow with the Moda booths!
