What should we tackle next?

I am sorry to say there won’t be a Paradigm Shift post today. I have another work trip next week so I wasn’t able to get one up today.  The good news is it is my last scheduled work trip for the year; most likely until next April so I will be back on somewhat of a normal schedule.  I do, however, plan to have a Paradigm Shift Tutorial up by next weekend.

With that said, The Paradigm Shift Quilt and tutorials are inevitably coming to an end.  The good news I’m introducing our next project!!!

I am planning on making my dad a quilt for Christmas or his Birthday which is in January. We’ll see how it all shakes out.  I have an idea for the color scheme, but couldn’t decide on the pattern.  Then it hit me! You should help me choose since you may have a vested interest in this process as well.  My dad loves all things blue and gray so I’m thinking about a batik Bali Pop from Fat Quarter Shop. Pretty perfect, right?  It is looking more and more like this will be a Birthday Quilt. (That would give me until 1/21) We’ll see if it ends up making the final cut.

Dear Followers,

I regret to inform you that the creator of the Paradigm Shift pattern that was published in America Makes Fast Quilts contacted me and requested that I remove ALL of my Paradigm Shift tutorials.  I was unaware from the magazine article that the pattern was for sale on her website or that I was infringing on a copyright.  Even though the magazine was cited and I suggested a compromise that would leave the integrity of the pattern intact and would allow the tutorials to stay up, she declined.  All of the material regarding common quilting techniques such as chain stitching, matching seams, pinning, spraying, quilting and binding will be re-worked and will re-appear shortly under  How It’s Done.

I am sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this may have caused you and I look forward to bringing you different and more interesting tutorials in the future.

Even though this post is no longer available take a look around; I have a bunch of other fun and easy to do tutorials that you can find inspiration in!
