  1. Congratulations! There is no going back now.
  2. Gorgeous! Thank you for the inspiration, Linda - and for the ribbon!!! Al
  3. I fold the binding in half, and apply the iron in one pass. This just barely creates a crease. Then I machine quilt, starting on the back and finishing on the front with a narrow zigzag. Not a show quilter here, just getting it done on my quilts. I would hate to do it by hand, too. Al
  4. Hi. I've been away for a while, doing some serious longarm quilting, and creating some new things. After several days running, I stopped accepting replies on the EQ7 Training Survey, and published the results on my blog. I also attach an image of the summary here. Please let me know if you are interested in the results, or if you interpret differently the results I summarized on my blog post. I am open to others' opinions, as I am not a professional statistician, nor a pollster. I want to share the results of the EQ7 Training Survey I announced a while back here on the forum. Based on traffic to that post on my blog, there seems to be quite a bit of interest in live, recorded online webinars to learn EQ7. Nobody is doing this, anywhere; mine will be a new way of learning EQ7! Note: I attach the image of the EQ7 Training Survey Results. I invite you to share it widely; I also would love to read your comments about my interpretation of the results! Another learning option is to attend in person one of the hands-on classes (I will be teaching those, too). However, for many of us, precious time is hard to dedicate to traveling, and even harder to justify motel/hotel, meals, etc. Online webinars are a great option, however. I will make the recordings of the webinars available to attendees for a specific time frame after I upload the finished videos to my website. I look forward to your comments! Meanwhile, I invite you to read the Survey Results on my blog, Learning to Quilt. I am also dedicating 2 brand-new websites to my EQ7 Training effort: EQ7 Training, which will include everything else that is not webinars, such as free tips, lessons, patterns, etc. EQ7 Training Videos, which will be the place where I announce upcoming webinar dates, and dates for my weekly EQ7 Training Office Hours. Thank you for your attention! Al
  5. Thank you to everyone who has already participated in the survey I started a while ago. Later this week I will publish the results. In the meantime, if you are an EQ7 user, or wonder what it's about, I invite you to participate in the survey, at: http://www.startingtoquilt.com/2015/06/would-love-to-know-your-interests-eq7-survey.html Thank you! Al EQ7 Instructor
  6. Thanks, Heidi. There were wonderful entries - and to win one of the categories is a great achievement. Well done! Al
  7. Congratulations - a wonderful achievement! Al P.S.: I was unable to locate the VT Quilt Show FB page.
  8. Teresa, The Missouri Star Quilt Co. states on their blog for this event: "...While the pattern for our row must be picked up in our shop here in Hamilton, Missouri, ..." The link is: http://blog.missouriquiltco.com/row-by-row-experience-2015/ Al
  9. Response to my Interest Survey for EQ7 on my blog has been excellent. If you have a few minutes, and are interested, please participate. Thank you! Al
  10. Lynn, Thank you for the suggestions - they are great! I will be teaching at least one session, at one of the quilt shops in the Kansas City area. Please look for announcements in the next Newsletter from that shop. And I will continue to work to expand the sessions and venues. Al
  11. Hi. I am new to the Forums. I am Al Navas, EQ7 Instructor. I live in NW Missouri. I wanted to share the following, as there might be some interest here. I published on my blog this morning: An announcement of an EQ7 webinar interest survey. I you are interested in the online webinars, I invite you to participate in the survey. I also published a new page on the blog, describing the courses I will offer. My blog is Learning to Quilt. You can find it at http://www.startingtoquilt.com/. Thank you! Al
  12. Fantastic! Congratulations to both of you!!!
  13. Congratulations, Sheri and MaryBeth - your pieced quilt was awesome, as were all the winners! I did not anticipate the show would be so large - a wonderful surprise. I would call it a huge success! Al
