Design, Paint & Stitch DVD Preview

Interweave has just posted a preview of my new DVD Design, Paint & Stitch. You have no idea how hard it is to watch yourself on these things, lol!

Here's the promo info:

Add paint to your quilt with an array of painting techniques!

After providing a brief overview of the materials she uses, award-winning fiber artist Judy Coates Perez covers:

The design stage including how she uses photo-editing software to manipulate and size her original designs

The painting stage with a look at the tools needed for painting; an in-depth review of the types and properties of paints is included

How to machine quilt your wholecloth quilt, from planning and marking to layering, basting, and free-motion quilting

Non-traditional binding options for art quilts

Learn the various steps that Judy takes to create an art quilt—from working on the initial design, to painting and quilting, through the finishing techniques.

Can't wait? Also available in download!


  1. Great preview. You are a natural teacher, Judy. So at ease. Congrats on another successful teaching tool.

  2. I know this will be fabulous. I am thrilled to be able to learn even more from you wonderful that you share with us all.

  3. I loved your first video and this one looks even more fantastic! Interweave sure is making Christmas shopping easier!;)

  4. Oh, thanks you guys! you are so sweet.

  5. I have your first two DVDs and you ARE a wonderful teacher. I will look forward to seeing your newest video! Thanks for the preview!

  6. The DVD arrived last night. WELL DONE! You sounded and looked fabulous, confident, and well at ease. And oh, how I wish I could see more of your quilts in person.
    I have some questions, if you're willing to share:
    1. Where do you get your titanium needles? What a good idea.
    2. What's your favorite wool batting?
    3. I've only ever found my Jacquard and Setacolor paints in small jars, maybe 2-4 ounces. I have this inkling that getting the paint out of those small jars and into squeeze bottles would in and of itself be excessively wasteful - there's just not that much there to begin with. Am I barking up the wrong tree? Are you starting out with bigger jars of paint?

  7. Oh gosh, even I haven't seen the dvd yet! thank you thank you for the glowing review! Those are great questions, that I am sure others would be interested in having answered too, so I am going to write it up in a blog post.

  8. congrats! keep up the good work/this is a great presentation.
