The Twinkle Magic Show - Computer.m4v

Wanted to share the schoolhouse presentation I just gave for Twinkle at International Quilt Market in Minneapolis.
I promise to really soon learn how to do voice overs.
This looks like a great way to show someone how a quilt goes together.

Color Mastery and Twinkle meet and are friends.

Hello UrbanAmishers!
Just a few more days and off I go to Minneapolis for the debut of two of my fabric lines for Blank Quilting, Avignon and Twinkle. When I return I'll tell you all about Avignon and I'll also post the PDF files for my schoolhouse presentation: The Twinkle Magic Show. It contains lots of fun ideas for using Twinkle and will get your creative juices flowing merrily downhill where they will puddle easily into a beautiful new fabric dream masterpiece.
The above image is a quilt idea that reminds me of Life Savers, the classic assortment. All you need is width of fabric strips of red ,orange , yellow, green and black Twinkle to surround the candy colors and off you go. You can get a closer look and free Twinkle patterns by clicking here.

And here's a chance to get some free Twinkle fabric to play with along with Maria Peagler's fabulous Color Mastery book (also free!).
The fabric kit looks like this and it's great for doing some of the exercises suggested in the book.

And here's all about the give away at Maria's Color Mastery blog.
In Maria's own words and pictures:

The goodies get more interesting each week, don't they?  This Color Mastery/Twinkle Fabric Collection prize pack is up for grabs this week, and it includes a Color Mastery book, the Color Journal Kit CD, and all ten colorways of Yolanda Fundora's brand new Twinkle fabric collection.  Is this fabric not totally yummy?  And it goes from a light value to a dark value in one hue.  What possibilities it holds!

  3. Each day I select a winner from all the Fans who've written on my wall that day for a unique surprise - a different one each day.
  5. Each day you visit and write on the Color Mastery wall, I'll enter you in the Friday drawing for the Color Mastery/Twinkle prize package.  If you've visited every day, you'll have five total entries.  Just for spreading the word about Color Mastery!
