Creative Arts Business Summit
My week started off with four days in Washington DC. For the last three years I've attended a Creative Arts Business Summit. Attendees include pattern designers, teachers, shop owners, longarm quilters and fabric artists. It is a great opportunity to work on your business rather than work in your business. It was incredibly energizing and great to meet up with some old friends and make new ones.
Check out the video highlights from the conference.

The weather was gorgeous while in DC -- unlike MN at the moment. I made it out for a walk every evening. This was also the first year that the cherry blossoms were blooming during the conference.
Susan Emory from Swirly Girls Designs took a number of us to see the cherry blossoms. Here are a couple of my photos.
Quick Lone Star Quilt Using Electric Quilt
Do you participate in the monthly challenge on Electric Quilt's website? It is a great way to get lots of quilts and blocks already drafted by other Electric Quilt users. The only caveat is that you must enter a quilt design of your own.
Barb Vlack's challenge for this month is creating a quilt using one of the Stars Layout in the Layout Library.
This video was done a while ago -- but it is a great illustration of using one of the layouts in that library. I hope it will inspire you to submit a project in the challenge this month.
Can you believe this lone star quilt took under 10 minutes to draft? This program is truly amazing.
Is Electric Quilt Intuitive?
During the conference I had a number of opportunities to share my love of Electric Quilt. One comment I heard a couple of times was "I didn't find the program intuitive." Do you feel that way?
If so, you may be interested in my private coaching program.
I will stand right behind you (electronically) and guide you every step of the way to create your dream quilt using Electric Quilt. I will give you both the knowledge and the confidence to tackle future projects on your own.
You can enroll directly in my store.
I look forward to working with you!
