My first DVD review!

Wow, I just got my first review of my new DVD and I haven't even seen it yet!

 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? 
First off, I want to say thanks for the great review!!!!!!! I think I am my own worst critic. These are  great questions, that I know others will want to know the answers to as well.

1. The titanium needles are made by a Japanese manufacturer named Organ. They can be found online with a google search or sometimes you can find a vendor at Quilt Festival or Superior Threads. Superior has made a deal with Organ to sell their titanium needles under their brand name.

2. My favorite batting is Hobbs heirloom. If you buy it in a bag, the batt can get pressed into flattened wrinkles, to get the fibers to relax, fluff up and regain their loft, you will need to lay it out flat and spritz it with water or if you have a hand held steamer you can run over the top of the batt a few inches above the surface and it will fluff right up. The other option is to buy it by the yard off the bolt from a quilt shop that carries it or directly from Harriet Hargraves shop it is wrinkle free if you do that.

3. I go through a lot of paint, so it doesn't always make sense for me to buy little jars. I like to buy the basic colors in larger sizes from either Blick or Dharma Trading and transfer them to boston round plastic bottles with screw tops.

When you have paint leftover paint in the jars after pouring all you can into plastic bottles, you can add a little water to the jars, shake them up and pour several complimentary colors on a peice of fabric, scrunch it up a little on top of plastic sheet and let it dry. For added effects throw some rock salt on a piece of wet painted fabric and let it dry. The next day iron it with a press cloth on top and enjoy!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS Mz. Judy!!! Excited to see you soon in Houston!

  2. Congratulations!! I can't wait to see your DVD! Thank you for posting the questions and answers. You're right, they were great questions and I really appreciate your helpful answers.

  3. Your dvd should be arriving any day, and I look forward to watching it. Congratulations on the creation of it, Judy!
    I can't wait to see you (& Nina?) in Houston.
