Quilting Arts TV taping day

Here I am on set, getting ready for my segment. The set looks fabulous, but hey would you expect anything less from Quilting Arts.
Before rolling tape we went through the segment with the producer and talked about what the sequence would be. My segment was scheduled to take 3 minutes. It is amazing how little you can cover in three minutes, especially when 30 seconds of that time was set aside for a look at my quilt Primordial Sea.
This is what it looks like from the other side of the table.And I guess this is what I will look like on tv. This is the monitor in the green room. We got to see each other taping, but we never got to see our own. That is probably a good thing.
In the green room with the quilts I brought.
Lesley Riley also taped today. She had several 90 second spots! They are great information packed little segments. be sure to visit Lesley, Frances and Pam Ruperts blogs to read what they wrote about the experience. Pokey is going to be blogging about the show too, but she is a little busy right now, so check the Quilting Arts blog for the latest news real soon.
Frances Alford snapping shots in the green room. Late in the afternoon Beryl Talyor came by the studios, she is taping tomorrow. Oh, and I saw her project for the Quilting Arts Holiday issue it is gorgeous!!!!! We had a lot of fun together, it was so nice having friends there for mutual support. Being on a show like this was a first for the three of us. I may have screwed up a few times stumbling on words but I never felt like throwing up or fainting! Pokey made it relaxed and fun and helped guide us through our segments. The whole crew and staff were wonderful. It is going to be a great show.

This new Quilting Arts show is replacing America Quilts Creatively with Sue Hausmann. It is not scheduled to air until the end of December but make sure you contact your local PBS and urge them to pick it up, if your area does not have America Quilts in its line up.


  1. Hi Looks great fun! Wish I could see it!! Helen

  2. Judy, it sure looks like you had fun! Here's hoping that many great things pan out for you from your appearance on QA!

  3. Judy you did it!!!! Who is the hostess? She looks very familier {spell ck). I am heading over to my 2 local PBS stations now!

  4. Thats Pokey (Patricia) Bolton, the editor of Quilting Arts.

    You look great! And doesn't Pokey makes it a blast?This should be a really good series.

  6. I'd like to know what's in the water in Chicago-you look younger everytime I see you...I hope they show this in NY-I've been a lurking fan for some time.

  7. Thanks Dee! I would say the first secret I have for looking younger is a professional make up person who knows how to make you look good on camera! I rarely wear any make up so it was a little strange having so much on for the show, but now i see why they do it.

    personally, I think looking young has a lot to do with state of mind. In my head I am not a day over 30.

    Judy! You look gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the "behind the scenes" shot. Can't wait to see the show. Rachel

  9. Judy: You hit the big time, baby! You look fabulous and I can't wait to see it air. I'm gonna say I knew you when. [fyi: this is super great and everything but could NEVER top the proximatey you shared with Michael Buble. THAT was the pinnacle!]

    xx cher

    ps The set was missing one important prop:a nervous Chihuahua

  10. Congratulations, Judy! I look forward to seeing the show. What fun it must have been to be there with Frances. I look forward to seeing you in Houston.

  11. Congrats, you look great and I'm sure it will be wonderful. I can't wait to see it.
