A Quilt for Baby Hannah by Debby Brown

A Quilt for Baby Hannah is a scrappy quilt designed and made by Debby Brown as a gift.

Dear Quilters,

Did you know that I give away a book most every week on Facebook? That Patchwork Place sends me books for the book review segment of Quilt Out Loud (they sponsor the show) so I’ve amassed quite a nice collection of fabulous books. Not wanting to be a hoarder (not pointing any fingers at my co-host mind you) I thought it’d be nice to share the joy with fans.

To be in on the fun, head over to our Facebook page and then find the “like” symbol and click to like the page. Then check back every week for another book to be posted. I usually post the contests on Fridays but with travel I can be off a day or two. (My assistants don’t seem to get Facebook. They’re good at sleeping on books or newspapers when I’m reading them, or the keyboard, but not social media. Though Possum does bathe Cocoa Puff, so who’s to complain at such sweet cuteness.)

Did someone say "free thread"? While you're on Facebook enter to win one of those dreamy suitcases of all 216 colors of 50-weight Aurifil thread. All you have to do is post a picture of a quilt you made and get all of your friends to vote on it. Hope you have a lot of Facebook friends!

Happy quilting and book collecting,

Quilt It! The Longarm Quilting Show

Episode 210 - January 2012
It’s All About the Tools

Week Three
Debby Brown demonstrates curved cross hatching using circle templates from Handi Quilter. This has more visual interest than straight cross hatching and can be done in any size. Chalk marking the position of the cross hatching on the quilt before you begin provides a center point and makes the whole stitching process fast and easy, with elegant results.

Episode 307 - January 2012
UFO’s Old and New

Week Three
Back at Keepsake Quilting, America’s favorite quilt store, Mark has brought along some of his UFOs (unfinished quilts for the uninitiated) neatly organized in white folding boxes. The consensus…it isn’t necessary to finish everything. If you don’t like it, don’t bother; otherwise organize those UFO’s until you find the time or the inspiration to finish them. Jodie and Mark finish the episode with their monthly book reviews and a mini quilt show of quilts from the books.

Premiering January 19th

Lily’s Valentine’s Day Gift

Week Three
To finish the Valentine’s Day pillow, in the third segment, Patrick shows us how to make the back of the quilted pillow covering in such a way that it can be easily removed for cleaning. This is a great tip to learn for making any pillow project. All that’s left is to sew the front to the back, using some tips for working with the pom pom fringe trim. This project is so easy to accomplish, you’ll want to make quilted covers and shams for all of your pillows. Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Improved Guidelines 4 Quilting Ruler!

What is the #1 complaint about quilting rulers, whether in the hands of a beginning or accomplished quilter? Slippage. Watch as John Brady shows why quilters won’t need to “walk” their hands along his ruler when using a rotary cutter. This rotary cutter also has a bar, which prevents line searching for each cut and ensures the cut will be perfect. See the new improved ruler!
