Applique Animals

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.

Sharing your quilts with others is just one of the wonderful feelings we get from quilt making. Patricia from California took my Bargello Seasons online class through Quilt University earlier this year and decided to put all four of her bargello projects into one large quilt.

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.

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.

10 years of online teaching

This year, 2011 marks my 10th anniversary of online teaching. I totally love teaching online as I get to meet so many wonderful quilters from all over the world. Man, I just cannot believe how fast 10 years has gone. I discovered Quilt University after talking to a teaching colleague in late 2000. She mentioned teaching online and I was fascinated. I asked her for further details and she put me onto Quilt University which is run by Carol Miller. I contacted Carol and asked her if she would be interested in any of my designs which I had on my website. At roughly the same time I was publishing my first few quilt patterns. Wow that seems so long ago now.
