Today I want to share a project from one of my students Judy of Switzerland. Judy joined my online class at Quilt University "Bargello Blues" where she learned to make this design. The class is four lessons long and also teaches you to create your own bargello designs.

Bargello in Spring

Being the last day of the month and realizing I have not added one post to my blog for the month prompted me that I should let you all know what I've been up to. Well, I must say, my students already inspire me back to the sewing machine...  so this past week I've been recreating my spring bargello quilt ready to produce as a pattern, the last one to be presented in the series.

Sharing your quilts with others is just one of the wonderful feelings we get from quilt making. Patricia from California took my Bargello Seasons online class through Quilt University earlier this year and decided to put all four of her bargello projects into one large quilt.

Do you need to change the size of your applique templates?

One way to simplify an applique pattern is to make the templates larger so they are easier to handle. This is easy to do. I use a program called PosteRazor which is free to download to your computer. You can find it online here: http://posterazor.sourceforge.net

Today I tried a new recipe that a friend gave me. I never really thought of grilling fruit with chicken but hey, I'll try anything once. Well, I loved it so much that I want to eat it again for dinner tomorrow.

It is always interesting to know how a quilter gets started in quilting especially though the help of online quilting classes. It is so easy to become addicted to this passion. I would like to share Carolyn Houlden's story with you and how she has grown to enjoy this wonderful craft of quilting.
