50 Styles of Quilting - Beyond Missionary Stippling!
If you read my previous blog regarding my big win and trip to Houston, you may be at home thinking, yeah yeah yeah, all very well she wins a trip and I am stuck here at home still trying to work out what to quilt on my latest quilt...Well the good news is....I am about to launch my first book, "50 Styles of Quilting" and it has obviously, over 50 different Styles of Quilting plus my 12 theories of Free-Motion Machine quilting plus soooo much more in the book. All explained in black and white with diagrams and explanations....hmmm I hear you say...what I really need is a video of how you actually create these design, not just a pretty picture. Wll I hear you...so guess what!!! The news just gets bigger. The book has 20 embedded short video clips of me drawing the design and talking you through the how to do it! Truly...in the book...all you will need to access these 20 short video clips is your Ipad or tablet, Iphone or smart phone and download a free app called Aurasma!
Truly ruly!! I was blown away by this new technology which literally adds video to a print book. Don't believe me? Well for $30 plus postage you can have my 70 page book and the 20 short video clips in your sewing room with you. I am so excited by this new technology I could burst and I really am not a computer techno geek person at all....I'm way too arty farty to usually get this kinda stuff but this is so simple and so cool...You just gotta see it! So go to my Shopping page and be one of the first to enjoy "50 Styles of Quilting" and learn along with me and this new embedded technology. It actually is a world first, a Quilting book with Augmented Reality!
So the book looks like this
Inside the pages look like this
But with you tablet or Smart phone and a free Aurasma app, you can watch me actually demonstrating and talking you thru how 20 of the trickier styles are created.
I am exhausted with excitement. Thanks quilting friends for listening and a big thank you to my friend KK for her assistance in creating the videos and introducing me to Augmented Reality! x
