If you are a Quilt University follower, by now you will have heard that Quilt U is going to close down by the end of the year. As my classes end at Quilt University, I will be moving them over to the Academy of Quilting. I have moved a handful already including Tote That Mat.

More on Machine Quilting Class

A few days ago I mentioned about the changes I was making to my machine quilting class at the Academy of Quilting. Today I made some further videos to upload so now it is all ready to begin next week. I had so much fun making videos that I decided to use the beginning of one to make a little promotional video for youtube. I figured it would be fun to share it here with you.

Entwined Star - ready to begin

Anita Eaton's Entwined Star quilt is a favorite for sure. The blocks are fun to make and look wonderful if you want to make them all scrappy. A great way to use up leftover scraps from other quilts.

I've been playing with screen casting and found it was a great tool to get the word out. In the following screencast I show you what it's actually like inside a class at the Academy of Quilting. It would be great to hear of other ideas on how you can use screencasts. Leave me a comment or email me your suggestions.
