The Quilt Show

Have you heard of The Quilt Show? It is a subscription computer television show for quilters run by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Alex Anderson is well-known for her television show Simply Quilts and Ricky Tims is well known for his wonderful award winning quilts.

They have a new show every month and it usually features a well known quilter who shows his or her quilts and then demonstrates their techniques. They are always inspiring and at the end of every season they sell the DVDs of all the shows in the season so you can watch it as much as you like.

They also have a blog and a newsletter that arrives in my email inbox every Friday. Imagine my surprise when I found that they had featured my quilt Naturally Crazy as their latest zoom quilt. What is a zoom quilt you ask?
They have a special program where you hover your computer mouse over the quilt and you get to see the details of the quilt up close.

It's a shame that they have a photo of my quilt on a sideways angle, I would have sent them a better photo if they had asked. Oh well, it was a thrill to have my quilt featured on their high profile blog.

Click on The Quilt Show link and have a look for yourself.

Bye for now,

The zoom feature was great to 'get up close and personal' with each of the blocks... Wonderful work Linda... As I am an admirer of crazy patchwork myself I can appreciate the detail and composition of the blocks.... I hope one day I might get to see 'it in the flesh' so to speak...

Thank you Sharon. I have had more good news with this quilt, it has been accepted into the World Quilt Show and I have to post the quilt back to USA.
