Have you heard about the new TV series focused on modern quilting, Fresh Quilting? If you do watch Fresh Quilting TV, I am excited to say that I was invited to be on the show! I taped my segments on Tuesday, and I will share when I get final details about when the segments will air later this fall (don’t worry, if your local PBS station does not carry Fresh Quilting, you can request that they do so, and I believe the segments will be on YouTube as well).
I created a couple of fun projects that I am looking forward to sharing with you when the segments go on air!
It was a really interesting process to evolve from teaching quilting classes to working to create teachable classes for TV. The entire staff and crew were exceptional and helped me feel at ease – I definitely was all nerves to start – but they skillfully helped me feel relaxed, comfortable, and confident.
Beyond that, getting to see “behind the scenes” and have insight into what it takes to produce a show like Fresh Quilting was a lot of fun. They film enough segments to create 2-3 shows each day during taping, which also means that there are other industry professionals to interact with and get to know.
For instance, it was an absolute delight to get to meet Sheri from Whole Circle Studio in person for the first time, and I am so grateful that we were able to go through the experience together and be there to support one another. Quilters are such a kind, generous, and caring group of people.
As you can see in the image above, which is a Facebook post that Fresh Quilting announced on Facebook this week, the list of modern quilters who filmed this week for Series two is impressive. I am honored and grateful to the Modern Quilt Guild, Fresh Quilting, and KS Inc. Productions for this opportunity.
