On Wednesday, Lori and I hosted another Facebook Live. This time the topic was prepping for your holiday sewing and we did a trunk show of some of the gorgeous quilts that are featured in the December and November issues of Quiltmaker, McCalls, Love of Quilting, Quilting Quickly and Quick Quilts.
If you missed us live, watch the video and let us know what you think.
Next, I spoke a little about how I keep my WIPs in order with one of my favorite products the Iris Scrapbook case. You can find them online and in stores like Michaels. You can also find them occasionally at Costco in multi-packs.
We announced our latest eBook – Winter Holiday Table Runners! Table runners are such a great small project to make. They really add some pizazz to your décor.
Next was the really fun part–the trunk show!
We shared many quilts and projects from several of our December issues, and even a few sneak peeks. We shared several fun projects that are perfect for gift giving. If you are interested in finding the patterns for these beautiful quilts and quick projects, I am listing them by publication below.
