Updating Virtual Lectures
This week’s project is to update my last virtual lecture. I’ve already converted my Studio 180 Design Lecture and Easy Color for Quilters to a virtual format, and this week I’m working on Secrets from the Judge’s Chambers. When I lecture in person, my presentation includes a trunk show because, well, it’s all about the quilts, right?! So the first two lectures required a ton of work: waiting for the right day to photograph the quilts outside, photographing all the quilts, transferring them to my computer, tweaking the pictures in Photoshop, then preparing a PowerPoint presentation.
I think this lecture will be easier to convert, because I should have pictures for most of the quilts already. The quilts I’ve entered into quilt shows are the quilts I use for this presentation. I do a quick run-through of what judges look for when evaluating quilts, then I discuss the judges’ comments on my quilts and how I used those comments to improve my work.
Well, I’ve stalled enough already. Better pull out my notes and get to it. Yup, more time on the computer. Hopefully I can do some sewing tomorrow.
