Academy of Quilting website

Over the weekend, I updated the Academy of Quilting website (www.academyofquilting.com). It needed doing badly and really it is easy with the content management system I have installed. It's no harder than writing a blog post to be honest. About here, I really should tell you what the Academy of Quilting is. It's an online facility where you can learn to quilt based on patterns published at Arbee Designs. You could call it our sister website.

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.

Bargello Blues - not so blue

I just had to share Julie's bargello blues, that isn't so blue. Julie Haase of Texas took my online class at Quilt University earlier this year. She selected colors in orange and gold from her border fabric to create the bargello then framed it with black. It is stunning I must say.

Applique Animals

Posted by Ruth on 18 March 2012 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

So I was looking at Jennifer's "Zoo Friends" online class and wondering why I haven't made these darling little animals before now. I guess it boils down to me always being too busy designing my own quilts. Well I decided that wasn't quite good enough. Her pattern "Animal Party" has been a huge hit and I know her class is going to be too so I at least need to make some of these little critters.

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.

Tags: , ,

Today I had to share a quilt from one of my students. Currently I have running my Bargello Seasons online class at Quilt University - this is always a popular class and it shows by the work that is created in it. Jo Dickson is just one student in my class this semister and is delighted to share her work with us all. Her Bargello in Spring (the first bargello of the series) is all complete and slightly different to the usual Spring Bargellos.
