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.

Scarlet Rose - stained glass

Posted by Ruth on 23 April 2013 | 0 Comments

The term Stained Glass generally refers to glass that has been colored by adding metallic salts during its manufacture then joined with black leading to form beautiful glass work. Throughout its thousand-year history, stained glass was applied almost exclusively to windows of churches, cathedrals and other significant buildings.

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.

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.
