Blog Hopping Fun
Pat’s asked us blog hopping friends some questions; here are my answers.
What one item do you really want to add to your studio and why.
One day, I want a long arm, so I can be a grown up quilter just like Pat… haha. The Millennium is on my wish list.
What color would you paint your living room if you had to do it right now?
My living room, sewing room and office share an L-shaped space. I live in an apartment, so changing paint colours isn’t really allowed. I did have this place painted when I first moved in and I still say they did not use the colour I had chosen. Note to self, if I ever pay to have painting done again, insist they sign MY paint chip as well as the one I give to them. I had wanted a warm yellow, but ended up with a very pale yellow, just slightly better than builder’s beige. This is the colour I want.. a little bit of sunshine everyday, but not too bright to require sunglasses:
Share a little known fact about yourself.
In February/March of 2008, I escaped the winter of Ottawa and spent six weeks in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Towards the end of my stay, I took a side-trip to Iguazu Falls – an absolutely breath-taking place to visit. If you ever get the chance, do it, you won’t be disappointed.
I even took the boat tour, which makes the Maid of the Mist in Niagara Falls seem like a child’s toy ride.
What is the last piece of fabric you bought
Well, the last fabric I purchased would be some solid white, but a photo of that would be rather boring. I did buy a huge stash of hand dyed fabric last year:
Your favorite candy to find in your Easter Basket
My most favourite Easter candy would be Cadbury’s mini eggs. There’s even a Facebook page for them. Lucky for me, I have a package sitting here that I discovered in my purse last night. Munch, munch, munch!
Enough about me, let’s take a look at reason you’re all here, to learn more about the Quilt Album software.
What is it? QuiltAlbum is an easy way to document your quilts – to store photos of and record detailed information about your quilts. You can easily drag and drop in a photo of your quilt and fill in the relevant details. A notes field is included for you to add any information that you wish.
For each quilt, you can print out an Album page:
… and even custom labels. How cute are these with my Springtime Chubby Chicks quilt that I made last year?
The software works on both Windows- and Mac-based computers. There’s a very detailed video tutorial available on the Quilt Album web site, and they have a newsletter that you can subscribe to and get useful tips and updates.
