Jodie and Mark are on the Jersey Shore, at the Spray Beach Yacht Club on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Summer vacation doesn’t mean the quilting stops! This month’s theme is quilting anywhere, proving a fancy studio isn’t necessary for outstanding results. You can maximize your space to quilt and pack to take your quilting with you when traveling.
How about a child’s lunch box filled with art and quilt supplies so you’re ready to go at a moment’s notice?
In their What’s Up? segment, Jodie tells us what new trends she saw at Spring International Quilt Market including lots of handwork, more modern fabrics and plenty of neutrals. While at Market, Jodie met up with longarm quilting machine guru, Linda Taylor who gives her insight as to what to look for in a longarm machine. Jodie and Mark look over That Patchwork Place’s book 501 Quilting Motifs which is filled with motifs for hand and machine quilting. Plus, you’ll get a good laugh over Jodie’s gifts for Mark from her Alaska vacation.
