One of my favorite things to do is machine quilting. If you haven't tried it before, then you are missing out. I have been machine quilting now for many years and love making new designs to practice and include in my quilts, but not only that, I also have a passion for teaching others how to machine quilt successfully. In fact, I have an online class that takes you from the very beginning of how to layer your quilts through various straight quilting techniques and onto free-motion.
This week my circular bargello class is starting at the Academy of Quilting. In fact, class has just begun and students are starting to sign in. Why not join me too?
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.
Earlier this year I wrote about my Knot of Squares online class which is based on Deborah Cohen's Trinity Celtic Knot quilt pattern. I gave you an insight of the class and what you would learn plus various options. Today I want to share with you my finished version.
At the Academy of Quilting we have been working on a new calendar and a slightly different way of presenting our classes. Now you don't have to wait any longer to register for a class and have a choice of dates to select from.
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.
My new updated Machine Quilting Class starts next week and I'm very excited about it. I cannot wait to get started.
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.
Zoo Friends is a fun class where you learn machine applique and an easy pieced block. Jennifer is the designer and teacher of this baby quilt and we have had some wonderful comments from students on how well they enjoyed the class with her last session.
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.
