Amy and April are quilting friends who live in Colarado. They both are in the quilting industry as fabric designers and book authors. I love their episodes on their experiences at Quilt Market. Their podcast topics are eclectic discussing everything from notions, books, process and techniques. I definitely feel like a FLY ON THE WALL over hearing two quilting friends talk about quilting and their lives.

MARK has been in the quilting business for years after previous career in TV production. Mark has his own fabric lines and he lectures around the country. He has published a magazine and produced an internet quilting video on QNNTV …. QUILT OUT LOUD . With his connection to the quilt industry he has interesting interviews of quilter and all type of creative people. I use to listen to him all the time when I first learned to download podcasts. I stopped downloading not because of Mark but because I started burning the podcast to cDs and his MP3 files would not fit. The only place I could listen to him was on my desktop computer and that was so uncomfortable. I did not have any type of MP3 player at the time that came later when I got a new car with a port I could connect to the speakers. I am currently in the process of downloading all his podcasts. .

NEWEST PODCAST DISCOVERIES …. or REDISCOVERIES …. 2015

I recently downloaded and listened to both of these podcast and found them delightful. Tsoniki talks creativity and sewing with quilting as an addition but her topics are worth a listen to… I LOVE her accent. I have only listened to a couple of the podcast but have her cued up to listen to them all. Mark’s podcast is a rediscovery since he did not podcast after his surgery but is now going strong. I love his eclectic interviews as they cover all aspects of creativity. Both of these podcast are inspirational.

TSONIKI is a native AMERICAN who lives on post in Germany with her husband who is active military. I just discovered her podcast and am working my way thru the last several years. She interviews people in the creative community , mostly sewists, quilter and bloggers. She discusses process and how they create and make money with their crafts and their life. So far I have found this to be an informative and fun podcast. ( I have only listed to about 6 of her podcast episodes and have about 40 more to listen to.)

Book Review : 1000 BLOCKS by Quilter Marker Magazines

1000a-BLOCKS -2090

1000 BLOCKS by Quilt Maker Magazine  is a collection of the first 10 issues of their block collection.  It is organized similar to the way the magazines had been organized from the beginning:  Applique, Foundation Pieced, Mixed Techniques ( fused, raw edge, hand sewn applique on pieced blocks, partial seaming, stitch and flip, pieced then slash and sew back together, foundation and standard piecing in the same block) and Pieced blocks.  What I really like about this book is the patterns are on a cD for the templates and many of the patterns. 

 

This book was great for me because I missed several of the issues that were sold out at my LQS when I went to buy them.  Since I now have this book I can give the magazines away to friends without guilt. 

 

The blocks in this book was sent in by both nationally known quilt divas and regular quilters who wanted to design blocks and quilts.  What I did notice when you looked at all the blocks the quality of the block designs greatly improved.  They were true designs and not rehashes of traditional blocks.  When a traditional block was submitted I disliked they did not use the original names but renamed the block.  I feel that dishonored previous designers and quilters.

 

One thing I did not like was how some of the blocks were dependent on the use of specific fabrics often no longer available.  These blocks can be made using other focus fabrics of the same scale, but I usually do not have suitable fabric.

 

I liked expansion of the block idea as there are magazines depicting  quilts made from the blocks.  (Only some of these quilts are in this book as illustrations.)  I always liked seeing the quilts made with the blocks as many of the quilts have secondary patterns.  I wanted to see more illustrations of the quilt blocks but that would make for a very fat book costing a lot more.  I have a feeling I will be re- drafting some of these blocks in EQ7 to see what the quilts look like.   I am hoping Quiltmaker and EQ7 (or another drafting software company) will publish these patterns similar to BLOCK BASE.  It would make it so much easier to make quilts.

 

The links to blogs and websites are noted when available this allowed me to add a lot of new blogs to my Feedly blog reader.  I see fun and quilts in my future when insomnia strikes.  I liked the designer index that is included in the book as it showed which designers submitted blocks over and over again.

 

I would like QUILTMAKER magazine should sponsor a challenge to quilters across the country to make quilts (crib, baby, child size)  with the block designs in this book.  These quilts could be exhibited in the AQS shows then donated the quilts to LINUS or various children hospitals and charities.  QUILTMAKER of course could publish an issue of the challenge entrants.

 

One thing that had me concerned as many of the pictures looked like an EQ7 rendering rather than a picture of an actual block.  This might be due to the fact many of the blocks were made in solid fabrics.  Pictures of the blocks proves someone actually made the block.  EQ7 renderings is great for designing but can the block be sewn as designed?  I know in the past when I tried my hand at designing I found there were times the block could not be sewn.

 

  The blocks in the book are all sized to 12 inch finished blocks so a sampler quilt can be made.  Or the blocks can be made in multiples and placed in a quilt top of your choice.  Examples of settings and yardages is included in the book.   

 

  I will still recommend this book to my friends.  I think it offers a lot for the cost and I love my encyclopedia of quilt block books since they provide inspiration and potential. 

 
HAPPY QUILTING,
NONNIE
