    Nancy Zieman's Column quilt. Have you made one?

    Has anyone made a column quilt like Nancy Zieman showed on her TV show? Did you like the process? Was it as easy as it looked on the show?

    It looks like so much fun to me, and not very complicated or difficult. I would love to try one. Just looking for any hints or opinions that you may have, if you have made one.

    Please show pictures if you have made one!

    I agree. It looks like fun. It is on my bucket list for when I finish my UFO's.

    We don't get any of the sewing or quilting shows anymore and I really am dissappointed....When I worked I couldn't watch them except on weekends and now that I'm retired they're no longer on! BOOHOO!
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    first, Drue...check your computer by searching for the names of the shows you like...many of them are online and can be referenced and even watch whole shows....some cost to join but many are free...the ones on DIY tv channel often can be seen for free....

    We don't have any here either. I don't get it with so many quilters out there. There used to be so many on years ago. I guess we have to watch them on the computer.

    I have made several and love doing it! Money was tight this summer and couldn't afford a long armer and this was a wonderful alternative. I used polyester batting on the first one and didn't like the way that one went together but it was my first. The second one I used flannel and while I liked the way it went together better it was really heavy. The third one I used a combination flannel on front column and muslin on back column and that is the best combination for me. All of mine were at least queen size (I'm a go big or go home kind of girl!!). I'm at work or I would post pictures. Will try to do it tomorrow.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Thanks for your interest in the Column Quilt design that I presented on TV. BTW, the most 52 current Sewing With Nancy shows are available online 24/7 at www.nancyzieman.com. If you missed a show or your PBS stations doesn't carry it, you can watch online.

    I also did a variation of that quilt called "Quilt to Give," you can find the instructions on my blog—www.nancyzieman.com/blog. It's way to use of scraps of fabric and then give the quilt to someone in need.

    WELCOME NANCY !!

    It is great to know about the shows online -- I have been trying to make an ombre quilt and could not remember all the hints you gave in your shows.

    Thank you so much Nancy! So wonderful to have you here with us. I always watched you shows and loved them. We used to get them when we lived up close to Shreveport thru the Shreveport Public Broadcasting....a wonderful system there, but when we moved to where we are now, we get nothing and the PBS station is the national station, obviously.....Really miss you! Thanks for your blog!

    I had never seen the column quilts and we record all her shows each week..don't know how we missed it unless it hasn't aired here yet...NOW...its on my bucket list to make ...but has to wait until after Christmas..I have far too many projects for orders and gifts to finish in a limited time...I was thrilled to see that Nancy Zieman is a member of our Quilting Board ...I just spent 3 hours watching her videos..so nice to have her videos so readily available
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Oh what a nice surprise...here I am just reading along thinking I remember watching that episode and how easy Nancy made it look and next thing I knew I was reading a message authored by the one & only Nancy Z. herself!!!! Wow...thanks for the early morning surprise. Ladies & Gents if you have never ordered any of Nancy's dvd's please give yourself a treat....its like having her right there in your sewing rm teaching you one on one. I can not say enough about the customer service at Nancy's either. Thanks so much for popping into our lil part of the world Nancy-Happy holidays to you!!!
