Isn't it amazing that we're almost into October?!
October is always my favorite month of the year because of my birthday (yes, I will be officially 26 years old), fall weather, and Halloween.
So in light of our upcoming festivities I've decided to let you in on some treats coming everyone by the end of the month!
Today is day 46 of this project and I've been overwhelmed by the positive response from quilters all over the world. Thank you to everyone who has supported the project by passing word along to your friends, forum members, yahoo groups, and blog readers!
I appreciate it more than you could ever know and you guys are really keeping me going with the project. Any time I get down in the dumps I just think about everyone waiting for the next design and I can't help but get excited myself!
Originally I was planning on waiting until the end of the project to publish books and DVDs of the designs. Now I'm starting to realize just how many 365 really is - IT'S HUGE!
So yesterday I started going back through the videos and designs and began editing to create a downloadble design workbook.
This will be a digital book you can download instantly onto your computer and print out. I like to make patterns and books available this way to help everyone save on shipping costs.
The first book will be a volume of designs 1 - 20 with 4 inch hand drawn graphs that will allow you to practice drawing the designs before you quilt them. These graphs will also be very helpful for picking just the right filler design for any place on your quilt.
Of course a design workbook would not be complete without a DVD to go with it!
I'm going back through all of the videos (thank god I saved them all!) and editing them again to create longer, more detailed instructions to help you master each design.
I'll keep you posted about how the process is going and if you haven't already, please sign up for the weekly newsletter in the upper right corner of this blog.
It's free to sign up and allows you to get the latest news happening with the project as well as any special treats (or tricks) I have hidden up my sleeves.
Let's go Quilt!
