The Splendid Sampler Follow-Up Post

I left off with a mention about reading the pattern thoroughly  before proceeding and this is how I learned something very interesting about one of the designers, Alyssa Thomas of Penguin and Fish.

She created the block I am working on right now, the Crocheted Thoughts block, 

and her blogpost about the design lead me to her site where she is demonstrating EVERY BLOCK in the Quilt-Along on a video, live and recorded for future viewing!!!!!

It's called #RelaxAndCraft and you can watch it every night at 9:30 central time and see people participate in the conversation, asking questions by typing in. You can see and hear her answer them as well as she demonstrates a particular technique. Alyssa is very engaging and the time just flies by.

Now, if you are like me and cannot stay away that late (that's late, right?), you can just watch the recorded videos anytime you like. There is no requirement to "join" unless you want to interact with Alyssa during the demonstration. But if you DO, you can go here and download the application, Periscope, and then you are ready to be an active participant each night you join in.

So, as I said before and it bears repeating, information is out there everywhere if you just go to the link where you meet the designer. I can't wait to see what else these crafty ladies have in store for us!
