It is great to see some photos come in from other quilters joining me this month in my monthly stitch along. I thought it would be fun to show off their work. I'll be updating this page as new photos come through. So far we have photos for week one. I cannot wait to see more!

Honestly, I had no idea what I was going to do with these strips before I started. I could probably just join them up but then that would be a little boring. I did decide to join two strips together to see where it took me.black and white strips joined

Montage Quilting Part Two

Today I wanted to share this fun little video that Marilyn Belford made about her Montage Quilting class. If you didn't already know, Marilyn creates exquisite quilts and teaches how she does that. A big part of creating the right art quilt is in the designing which is all covered in Part One of Montage Quilting, and Part Two is all about putting your design into fabric, from enlarging the design to making templates and transferring your design into fabric and stitching. By the end of this two-part course, you will have your own unique art quilt.

It's taken me a little time to write this blog post because I am still in shock-horror of what has happened to me. The purpose of this post is to make my fellow quilters, teachers, and colleagues aware of what is going on. When nothing is said, nothing changes so my hope is that you will spread the word so this sort of behavior doesn't continue.

This past week I created my own quilt show with my daughter's help. We arranged nearly all my quilts in different settings for my own personal show and had a lot of fun doing it. Over the coming weeks, I'll be presenting many of the quilts on display right here on my blog.

March Stitch Along - week 1 instructions

Welcome back to Stitch Alongs. If this is your first Stitch Along with me, it is very easy to join in. Just follow the instructions each week to create a small art quilt. We usually try to make them no more than a standard piece of paper, but you can make them any size you like. We like to see what you create so send in a photo once you have completed the instructions each week. These challenges are a great way to try new techniques or test out your designing skills. I hope you will join me as we create a fun challenge for March.

No patterns, no rules! The aim of this workshop is to learn how to work from your ideas and discover your own personal voice. In the process, we will cover the basics of good design within the context of the art quilt.
