150 Quilt Rerun Block 1

    Block 1 and the explanation for 150 Rerun cutting instructions are on the group page. To join you must have or can purchase the CD.

I still haven't figured out zoom through OBS yet so it is just a recording. Any questions, then email us, ask @ quiltnasium dot com.

Winter is staying at in the mountains so far and that it is where it should be.

MIA Zoom

   So this was all weekend in the far south of Alberta, Lethbridge.

And all this weekend not so far south in Alberta, Calgary. Ol' Father Winter let us know he was coming on winds of 85kg/hr = 55mph. Almost all the leaves are gone and the lake has a thin ice covering. As my dad used to say, 'Better put rocks in your pockets.'

   Sometimes, it is bad getting old. Sometimes, it is hard to believe I worked in IT and knew all the latest technology. When the phones became smart phones, I didn't care and didn't want one. Since getting back into business in early 2000s, I've been playing catchup ever since. The ol' brain is slower and sometimes it likes to run backwards. 

But thanks to a young whippersnapper teaching an old fuddy duddy, we've finally kind of got the hang of 3 cameras, OBS and Zoom. So, for those of you that are registered on facebook with your pattern for the 150 Canadian quilt rerun we will be taking the first kick at a zoom meeting for cutting out the background and Block 1. 

For those of you waiting for the gypsy wife program to start it will happen in a couple of weeks.

We are almost finished with the roll over of to another webhost and updating the blog look and getting the email operating again.

I'd like to thank all you for being extremely patient in waiting for these programs to happen.

150 Rerun Computers Ack!

   Did everyone have a full feeling Thanksgiving? The turkey was not the only creature that was stuffed.

   There was a time many decades a decade ago I actually loved computers. The internet, blogs, Facebook. I was even a programmer and beta tester at one time. The smarter the phone, tablets, ieverything becomes the more I want to go back to analog flip phones. The more the platforms grow the more they change. What I once followed is now almost impossible. Even the platforms are making it so that it is a problem to follow my favourite people and animals. They have even limited my favourite see firsts or all posts. 

I've been working on getting set up for online tutorials and classes. Unfortunately, the new laptop is not cooperating. Just when I've become comfortable being on camera, none of the cameras will work through the new laptop. Does the laptop camera know something I don't? It's probably one little box to check. What I learned as a programmer, the computer is only as good as the operator and the programmer who programmed it. What I learned as a beta tester, I can always screw up the program and the more it is to be foolproof the worse I manage to mess it up. They finally had to add something to follow my keystrokes to figure out what went wrong. 

  To join the 150 quilt rerun you MUST have the pattern. Many of you downloaded it a couple years ago. That's excellent. If not, then it is available in CD or PDF format on Only if you have the pattern and answer the questions, can you join the facebook group, 150 Cdn Quilt Rerun.
