    LIVE Broadcast December 1, 2023

    Each month I do a LIVE where I talk about that month’s instructions. It is at Noon Central Time and is recorded to be watched whenever you want. It streams on Facebook and YouTube, under The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims.

    Friday December 1, 2023 I will begin with the wrap up to Homeward Bound featuring the quilting then discuss how to get ready to jump right in with Pick A Petal when the first month’s instructions are released January 1, 2024!

    I hope to see you there.

    Barbara, how do I contact the Shop? I would like to order several notions to take advantage of free shipping when the BOM 2024 templates are available. I did mark the “Notified when available”.

      My testimonial on the quilt show: Dee Christopher did a "Handmade Quilt" class last year. As a beginning quilter (only 7 years) I learned so much including piecing techniques that Dee shared. She modified some of the more time consuming blocks and gave instructions on how to approach completing the blocks by hand or machine. When I first saw the "Pick a Petal" quilt my immediate reaction was it was too difficult. But seeing the LeMoyne star in the middle gave me more confidence as I knew I had successfully done one with Dee's help. After viewing your video today, Barbara, I'm looking forward to your helping me as a novice learn more techniques and if any one out there is doubting their skills, this is a good place to work on them. Thanks quilt show for all you do.

        Thank you, Jennifer. This will be a great learning quilt as there is lots of repetition so opportunities to improve skills with each block.
