Meet Aaron & Chip, your hosts of "Fiber Hustle ~ a sewing and knitting podcast".
Aaron knits, Chip quilts.
In their most recent episode (#26), Chip had a little something to announce . . .
It's true! In the coming months, Chip and I will embark on a new chapter for "Quilting in the Fast Lane" . . . . COLLABORATION! We have something pretty special planned that will be very different than anything you've seen here before. Chip has been very generous with his praise about all the ideas I have, but it was he that inspired me when communicating with him over the last few months. This man had vision and ideas that hadn't even occurred to me until we began talking. He motivated me to approach this whole collaborative project together in an entirely new way than what I was originally thinking (always the BEST part about any collaboration) . . . . and I'm really eager to begin this journey with him!!!
As I wind up the 'outdoor season', capturing shots for the opening sequence of "Into the Woods", and prepare to move inside for Autumn & Winter, I foresee some very busy months ahead with Chip. We've decided there is no timeline for this project, and we'll proceed when it fits our schedules . . . and remains fun. This could take a while, but it will be worth the wait. And I'll be talking about it all as it progresses.
I just know that the creativity from both of us is going to create some spectacular results!!!
As mentioned earlier, the opening sequence (the cutting of the fabric) for "Into The Woods" is shot and in the can! I'm very happy with the results!!
I will continue to shoot into the next sequence (piecing) for as long as the good weather holds up, since this WHOLE production is being shot outside this time around. There's some BIG ideas ahead to fulfill, so there will have to come a time when the production on this quilt and quilt/lapse video will have to go on hiatus until next Spring. And maybe that's a good idea. This shoot has been hard on my body, lol. I've been transporting Dad's table, plus all my recording equipment in a wheelbarrow, along with a couple of ladders for hard-to-reach camera angles (which also double as an impromptu tripods) all around our property to get some terrific shots. As a result, I've acquired a few injuries (neck, shoulder and elbow) along the way that need a little time to heal before I get back out there. I can only do so much damage inside, right?
And one last thing . . . .
I often reply to new subscribers of Quilting in the Fast Lane that they (all of you) will be privy to details, pictures and video of the current quilt and quilt/lapse production that won't be available anywhere else (social media). That time is now. It may be up to a year before "Into the Woods" is finally finished (it's a really BIG project) but I'm busting to show you some of what I've shot already . . .
So, here it is. The first 40 seconds of "Into the Woods". A sneak preview JUST FOR YOU!
