Totally as a fluke, I found on line that you could purchase DVD's of the movie Stitched as a fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association. I was interested in watching this movie and was lucky enough to see that they were selling copies and I got one! This movie is a documentary that follows the activities of three quilters: Caryl Bryer Fallert, Hollis Chatelain, and Randall Cook, while they work on their entries for the Quilt Festival in Houston.
I tried to watch the video while I was sewing my star blocks, but it is way too interesting to watch while sewing!
Believe me...I really tried!
I would start stitching a seam and then have to look up at the wonderful photos of all the great quilts...and forget what I was stitching. It was one seam forward, then two seams back and no progress was made at all.
I better go back to listening to books on tape! I have never been to the Houston show, but after seeing this movie, it is on my bucket list for sure.
Here is the preview of the movie:
