This podcast is mine it is totally irregular uploading of episodes since I work as a full time nurse and when I come home from work I am totally tired.  To be honest I have not gotten very far in my FINISHES this year.  I love quilting and try to keep working on my projects… but it is slow going.  I do blog and podcast about the the quilt books, notions and newest techniques  I buy.  I plan to post an episode once a month …. that said it has not happened yet….

Frances is a children’s book author who has taken up quilting in the past 7 years.   She is a dedicated finisher and takes you along  on her journey.  I loved listening to her podcast over the last 5 years as she progressed from a newbie with a new to her sewing machine to an accomplished quilter.   Frances is from North Carolina and talks about her life, her kids, quilting and the weather. ( joke)  She also often talks about the books she is reviewing.  Frances often wanders off topic but so delightfully.  I look forward to everyone of her episodes and often listen to them more than once.

I first saw Pat when she presented her trunk show soon after I was introduced to quilting back in 2005.  To think of it I think she was the first national teacher I had been exposed to.  Pat was also the first podcast I use to listen to when I learned about podcasting in 2010.  ( Remember I am not of the computer generation that learns how to use a computer in grade school.  Computers had not even been invented when I went to school.)   Pat currently works with American Patchwork and Quilting magazine  but she had been podcasting for several years before she affiliated with them.   Pat has been in the quilting business for years and has interviewed many of the nationally known  quilting divas.  She always have interesting guest to listen to.  Pat publishes weekly  so you can count on her when you want to listen to podcast while working on a project she always has something quilty to listen to.

 ANNIE SMITH was the first quilting podcaster.  She published over 100 podcasts  when life through her a curve and she had to slow down in her posting new episode.  I liked her podcast because she interviewed quilters on the west coast as she is based in California.  Annie is teacher and quilt judge so you always garnered helpful hints from her episode.  My favorite episodes of hers is the discussion of entering quilt shows.   I have only touched on a few of the topics she discusses I always learn something from her she is well worth the LISTEN.

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.

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.)

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.                        .

CRAFTSY CLASS: ANGELA WALTERS

 negative spaces

 

Machine Quilting Negative Spaces … December 2012

Angela teaches a variety of popular motifs and how to use those motifs in the negative / backgrounds of quilt tops.  She stresses the importance of practicing and sketching the patterns to improve muscle memory.  Many of the motifs were new to me when I first took the class but now they are my go to motifs when I get stuck in a project.

Free Motion Quilting with Feathers . . . May 2013

Angela teaches how to do traditional feathers applying them to MODERN QUILTS.

Dot to Dot Quilting … August 2013

Angela shows how to evaluate a block and design a quilting motif that will highlight and enhance the patchwork.   She has broken down block designs to their simplest elements so that you enhance your entire quilt.

Machine Quilting Small Changes Big Variety …. May 2014

This class is an enhancement of her earlier MACHINE QUILTING in NEGATIVE SPACES.  She shows variations of motifs from the original class.

*
*

I am going to BLAME my Craftsy obsession on Angela Walters. I recently went through my ORDER HISTORY on Craftsy and reviewed all the classes I have signed up for. I have purchased thirty eight quilting classes since September 2012. I got one free class at the time for joining up and testing the platform. I later signed up for every free class they had listed. It was not till Christmas time 2012 when I signed up and watched Angela Walter’s Machine Quilting Negative Spaces that I went nuts with signing up for every FMQ class available on Craftsy.

.
I already had a large collection of DVDs about Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) but Angela’s class broke down how to learn the motifs and patterns that actually resonated with me. Angela teaches you to sketch the pattern on paper or dry erase board until you built up your muscle memory. The motif that Angela teaches is demonstrated on a long arm, but can easily be translated to being sewn on a domestic machine. In later classes Angela demonstrates and teaches her motifs and techniques on a domestic machine.

.
Prior to Angela the FMQ motifs I learned were feathers and traditional motifs in nature. The long armer’s I took my quilts to only did pantographs or custom quilting in traditional styles. Angel’s motifs were more MODERN in styling. Her motifs the same as used in traditional quilts were applied in a totally fresh and innovated way. What was more important to me I could learn and apply her styling and do them on my domestic machine. Angela also tackled the area of quilt top that terrifies most quilters the “negative” space. Those open areas need to be quilted to not only keep the quilt sandwich together but the negative space area actually focuses, highlights and show cases the FMQ.

.
In each of Angel’s classes I learned various techniques and motifs that I have since applied to my own quilting project. My confidence in my FMQ and willingness to try new motifs and techniques has grown. I will not say I am a wonderful perfect FREE MOTION QUILTER as a matter of fact much of my motifs tend to be a little wonky in nature, but I will say I learned to be adventuresome with Angela. I have found her easy teaching style to be inspiring.

.
I have since taken all of the other classes by Angela and have found I learned something from each one of them. I did find Machine Quilting Small Changes Big Variety Class to be somewhat repeative and too similar to the first class, NEGATIVE SPACES. That said, I have always felt I got my money’s worth from the classes. I will say that DOT TO DOT is my second favorite class. Here she demonstrates using a domestic machine. The motif she shows teach how to highlight and show case patchwork blocks. This is something I have always had trouble with as I had always quilted panels in a thread painting style. Recently I have made a series of pieced baby quilts but was at a loss as to how to quilt the blocks to show them off to their best advantage. The DOT TO DOT class really helped me go through the process of analyzing the blocks then designing a motif to highlight the piecing.  I do find when I get stuck on a project, I fall back on ANGELA’s classes to find inspiration.  These are one of the few classes I repeat on a regular basis.

.
As I have stated before I prefer DVDs to the CRAFTSY platform, but I would purchase Angela’s classes in a DVD format despite owning the classes on Craftsy. Since Craftsy -like platforms have become such big business in the on line craft learning, I have noted there are less and less DVDs available for purchase. Even the independent DVD producers who use to develop a DVD series are no longer producing as many. In the future I will review the DVDs I have purchased so that if you can find them you can decide if you wish to purchase them.
