For the ninth year, over 40 quilt artists from across the Southeast will exhibit work in the biennial invitational exhibition at the Piedmont Arts Association, Martinsville, Virginia. The theme of the exhibit is Celebration of Color. This year's exhibition features quilts in vibrant, stunning hues.
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!
One of my favorite things to do is machine quilting. If you haven't tried it before, then you are missing out. I have been machine quilting now for many years and love making new designs to practice and include in my quilts, but not only that, I also have a passion for teaching others how to machine quilt successfully. In fact, I have an online class that takes you from the very beginning of how to layer your quilts through various straight quilting techniques and onto free-motion.
This week my circular bargello class is starting at the Academy of Quilting. In fact, class has just begun and students are starting to sign in. Why not join me too?
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.
Today I loaded in three new classes at the Academy of Quilting and updated the Academy Calendar. Two of the classes have a special start price for a limited time so it pays to register early. If you purchase the special rate, you can always request a later date if it doesn't quite suit.
Earlier this year I wrote about my Knot of Squares online class which is based on Deborah Cohen's Trinity Celtic Knot quilt pattern. I gave you an insight of the class and what you would learn plus various options. Today I want to share with you my finished version.
At the Academy of Quilting we have been working on a new calendar and a slightly different way of presenting our classes. Now you don't have to wait any longer to register for a class and have a choice of dates to select from.
A few days ago I mentioned about the changes I was making to my machine quilting class at the Academy of Quilting. Today I made some further videos to upload so now it is all ready to begin next week. I had so much fun making videos that I decided to use the beginning of one to make a little promotional video for youtube. I figured it would be fun to share it here with you.
