Make yourself some popcorn and get ready to watch some movies with me! Well, OK, the movies are quilt instructional videos and you may not want greasy-popcorn-hands near your fabric, but we'll still have a good time! In this episode I review five quilt instructional videos, and share a tip that I learned from each one. I also review the Stash Mystery Challenge and New Year Resolution Give-Away, do some listener comments, and complain a lot about thread. "Dian McClun & Laura Nownes Teach You Beginning Quiltmaking", from C&T Publishing--At Home with the Experts Series #8 http://www.ctpub.com/client/client_pages/AHWTE.cfm "Precision Piecing" with Joann Middleton, from Patchwork Schoolhouse (www.patchworkschoolhouse.com).
