April 6, 2020 - Quilt Candy Virtual Trunk Show Day #6

I can't believe the trunk show is half-over!  But do not worry - there are still more quilts to be seen. 

Also - thank you so much to each of you who have provided such positive input about the shows!  It was something new and with trying something comes a degree of risk, but the benefits for all of us have truly outweighed the risk!


Here is the list of designers presenting today!

If you are just reading this - here is how a Virtual Trunk Show works?  

Go to each designer's Facebook page and "like" or "follow" it so you will receive a notification before the trunk show starts. 

At the designated time or a few minutes before, go to the specific designer's Facebook page and watch the trunk show.  It will last about 15 minutes and in the comments you have an opportunity to ask questions, if you desire.  Your question might not be answered during the Live broadcast, but most designers will go back through the comments and answer after their presentation has ended. 

If you miss a show, you should be able to go back to the designer's page and catch a replay.   Please remember that every designer does their "live broadcasts" a little different, so you may need to roll with it.   I try to replay mine and then also post to YouTube. 

Each day, I plan on posting that day's schedule so you can follow along.  To make sure you are getting my blog posts, be sure to enter your email and subscribe to my blog too! 

And if your schedule doesn't permit watching LIVE - plan some time to binge watch them later :)

My Design - Debby's Quilting: A Fun Collaboration with Debby Brown

I'm excited to share a super fun collaboration that I'm doing with my friend and fellow quilt designer Debby Brown of Debby Brown Quilts.   

I will be making a quilt top using my Modern Bars quilt pattern and then sending it off to Debby who will work her quilting magic on it!  And the best part is that you will get to watch her quilt it and learn more about why she chooses the patterns she uses and how you can stitch the exact same quilting patterns yourself!  

So the first step - selecting the fabrics! 

Here is the original Modern Bars quilt made with Island Batik fabrics.  



While I love the original, I'm opting for a funner, fresher, more modern look with this version.  Here are the fabrics I've pulled so far.  Aquas and teals from my stash paired with a pure white background.  


I think this color palette will give me that light and fresh look I like in a modern quilt. 

Stay tuned as Debby and I post about the progress on this collaboration.  

And if you are looking for the Modern Bars pattern, it will be available soon too!
