I have some exciting news today! This is the opening day of my new six-part Contemporary Sampler Quilt Class online at The Quilt Show. I’ve been working hard and having lots of fun the past few months with Alex Anderson, getting this new class ready. Our goal is to help new quilters build a solid foundation in the basics of quiltmaking. Seasoned quiltmakers will also enjoy learning new tips and brushing up on many techniques.
Alex and my daughter, Molly, did the taping while John (Alex’s husband), Mary Kay Davis, and Lilo Bowman of TQS did the behind-the-scenes technical work to put it all together. Thanks everyone!
This new classroom is available FREE to anyone joining (or already a member of) The Quilt Show as a Basic or Star member. You can access the classes anytime you like. Yes, this means that if you are awake at 3:00 a.m., you can wander over to the computer in your jammies and join in the fun. It’s easy and will cost you nothing but your time. So please take a minute to visit The Quilt Show’s website. Class is about to start!
Here’s a photo of the quilt I’ll be demonstrating. I must be honest with you: I started off with an entirely different collection of fabrics, but after purchasing these adorable polka dots at one of my favorite quilt shops, Back Porch Fabrics , on a recent trip to Asilomar (CA), I completely changed my direction. I love the fresh look and hope you will too.
In addition to the six-part series, I’ve put together a Resource Library that will be available on the TQS website. There you can find information on thread, sewing machines, quick-cutting techniques, terminology, and a binding demonstration. Information is also available directing you to other resources on the site that will assist you with layering, basting, and hand or machine quilting.
Just click here to sign up to be a Basic member. It’s fun and FREE. I hope to “see” you in the classroom.
Take care everyone.
