Filming for Quilting Arts Workshop

 Last month, I was invited to submit a proposal for a Quilting Arts Workshop DVD.   My proposal was accepted and I went to Interweave headquarters in Loveland, Colorado last week to tape the video demonstrating my technique for hand printed quilts.  Here are a few pictures of me on the set.
 The finished DVD will be about 1 hour 10 minutes in length and I demonstrate all the steps involved in creating the block printed quilts.
 The DVD includes painting the background fabric, carving the printing blocks, a discussion of fabric paints, and finishing techniques including the fused and quilted binding I have been using with this style.

I will be the first in line for this DVD! Any idea when it will be available. Congrats on this! I bet it was scary and fun. :-)

PS--I loved the beets even before you quilted the piece, but it looks fabulous finished. I think you cropped the right area--I would have hated to see the roots cropped off..
