If I can Skateboard you can make A Place in the Sun

For those who were lucky enough to be part of our fabulous webinar today, you will have seen the 'glorious' picture of me skateboarding - my first adventure for the year 2012!! Well as I said, if I can skateboard making A Place in the Sun is a breeze. A Place in the Sun is for remedial quilters/embroiderers as all you have to do is hoop-n-go for a whole quilt which includes quilting, applique, sashing, cornerstones, center medallion and borders. And guess what, no measuring required as it has all been done for you with built-in cutting lines! All you have to do is keep your embroidery machine going and cut on the builtin stitch cutting line and piece with the perfectly flat Jenny Join!

One other thing, if the detailed step-by-step pictures and directions are not enough for you, well invite me to be your personal coach, just go to my website and download the Free instructional videos  now all you have to do is 'follow the bouncing sewing ball' and in no time you will be in competition with our amazing Nancy!

Read Nancy's email in two previous blogs ago - well here is a photo of her first lot of blocks and rest assured this quilt will be finished in not time, as she has already purchased the fabric for her second quilt - way to go Nancy, who is 88 years young.
