If you (1) love hand applique -- or want to learn how to love it,
I had some fun with my granddaughter putting together a short video of some fabrics made by students in Marjorie McWilliams class "Batik". The tune my granddaughter chose is very catchy and had her dancing around full of glee which is exactly how I'm sure the students felt after making their beautiful unique batik fabrics - so much fun!
The Entwined Star block is a variation on an eight-pointed star made from a basic nine-patch block. There are a number of related stars. I designed it for a sampler quilt when I was doing a Block of the Month through the quilt shop I was working for. I had decided to do a variation of each of the blocks that we made because I wanted a larger quilt.

The last five On-demand classes make up today's presentation - part 10. These include an easy method of stained glass and an easy way to applique using fusible webbing. I also have three more classes of my own in the list, foundation piecing in Mariner's Compass, a free form patchwork style with Patchwork with a Twist and the every popular quilters tote Tote That Mat. Check them out below:
Five more On-demand classes to present today. This is part 9 of my presentation and another mix of classes. One of the great thing about our classes is that they are all very different so there is always something new to learn depending on which direction you want to take. Why not learn something new today?
On-demand classes part 8 includes five different workshops. What fun it has been presenting all these online workshops that are all so different. Do you have a favorite? Have you taken any? I'd love to share some photos of your work if you have. How about displaying some in our student galleries for others to see too?
Part 7 and I have four more on-demand classes to show you. A real mix of workshops today from computer work and painting to displaying your quilts and knowing which tools to use when creating your masterpiece. As you can see, our workshops go way beyond the standard patchwork quilt (although we do have these too!), we also include a number of design classes which include creative ways to get you motivated into your own style of work. As I always say... "Creativity is within us all, our workshops just help you express it".
This quilt came about as a challenge in our small art quilt group. The subject was wind. I chose to do the North Wind because it had been a frequent part of the many fairy tales I heard and read as a child. I researched some legends about the north wind and looked for images on the Internet. I was surprised to see how similar the Nordic and Roman images were. I selected and combined a number of ideas to come up with the image.
In Part 6 of our on-demand classes selection I have decided to list a few more of my own classes. As a teacher, I'm never too far away to help with questions you might have and in class we have an area for this where you can also see what other students have asked.
