Reversible Quilts

Reversible quilts, have you ever made one? I have always thought that would be great especially on a table runner and placemats, or even a bed quilt. You could flip it over and instantly have a different color scheme. Leslie has a class on how to make these so I took a moment to ask her how it was done and how she got started.

Creative Color by Lily Kerns

Color is a fascinating thing. It is mind-boggling to think about how we see colors and it takes a special talent to put the right combinations together, one would think. But really, we all have color ideas and know-how within us and sometimes we just need to learn some basic techniques or become aware of what we know so we can apply it in our quilt making.

Saturday I figured it was time to make a facebook page for the Academy of Quilting so I created a cover image with one class photo from each teacher.

Portraits in Quilting

Even though there is a lot of work going on at the Academy of Quilting, it does allow me to have a better look at each class individually. Years ago, I began to make a portrait quilt of my daughter by hand. Unfortunately, it was never finished, but now I'm inspired to continue on or start anew by Marilyn Belford's class "Realistic Fabric Portraits".

Bargello Swirl

With all the changes going on at the Academy of Quilting, I haven't had a lot of time to work on my own classes. I'm mostly known for my bargello designs at Quilt Unversity and I am looking forward to offering more of these classes on the Academy. I already have my Circular Bargello available and will be adding Bargello Seasons, Bargello Blues and Twisted Bargello. To keep my Circular Bargello class competively priced with my other Bargello classes, this month will be the last time it will be available at the current fee. Next year it will be increased to reflect the going prices of all classes.

Need some quilting inspiration? The class schedule for January is posted on the AcademyofQuilting.com website. We have 24 classes listed to begin in January. Not only do we have many from Quilt U, a lot of which have been updated with videos and refreshed information, but we also have brand new classes beginning and several that have not been around in a while have come back.  Which one will you pick to start the new year? Maybe you'll pick two!

Knot of Squares or Trinity Celtic Knot

One of the beauties of online classes is that you can work at your own pace just as Connie is doing with her quilt. She made her Trinity Celtic Knot quilt in dark fabrics and has extended the quilt to include extra patches. Connie doesn't always have time to work on her quilt so is happy to come back each class session with updates and questions when needed. It's fantastic watching her quilt grow.

Excited to Share some of the online classes for 2014

I'm sure if you are a student at Quilt University and follow along with their newsletters that you'll know some of the teachers will be joining me at the Academy of Quilting. We have been busy installing many classes and I must admit, I love looking in the galleries to see what both teachers and previous students have created.

Who likes playing with bright fabrics? Me! I'm sure a lot of you do too. Brights are really cheery and fun. Children love them.
