QuiltCon 2015: I'm teaching and I can't wait!

Posted on May 06, 2014 by Cristy | 0 comments

QuiltCon 2013 was an incredible experience. It was nonstop fun and alive with energy. Returning for 2015 was definite for me, but this time will be a little different, in the best of ways.

10 years ago, I started my business, Purple Daisies, LLC. My mom's (Sharon Schamber) quilting career was growing larger by the day, and I knew that online exposure was the next step for her. I started selling her...

Posted on March 19, 2014 by Cristy | 0 comments

Hi Everyone!!

My friend Melissa(WeShallSew on Instagram) tagged me in a picture asking about a way to glue baste individual Drunkard's Path blocks. She is one of my biggest glue basting supporters, so of course I wanted to help. I started taking pics, thinking 2 or 3 might be enough, and I'd just post them on Instagram for her. Yeah, no. That didn't work out. Those 2-3 pics turned into 16, which...

A couple of months ago, I filmed the videos for the Double Wedding Ring QAL, along with several other video tutorials. When I played them back for editing, the videos were garbled and unusable. I was so frustrated (and may or may not have taken it out on my video camera). I had spent all of that time making videos for you, to only discover that I had been talking to myself.

I bought myself a new...

My mom, Sharon Schamber, developed the Paperless Paper Piecing technique more than 10 years ago. It is a simple technique, that allows you to "paper-piece" with precision, limitless possibilities, and no paper to tear out in the end. Once you wrap your mind around the technique, you'll discover the ease...

Well, hello!!

I'm very sorry for not posting sooner. I enjoy blogging so so much, but when my businessgets busy, blogging keeps getting pushed down on my "to do" list. Being busy with all of my business stuff is not a bad problem to have. I'm very grateful. I just wish I had more hours in my day, or maybe an assistant, or a housekeeper. I'm going to keep on moving forward, and share with you as...
