Knot of Squares or Trinity Celtic Knot

Posted by Ruth on 22 October 2013 | 0 Comments

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.

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.

Learn Machine Quilting

Posted by Ruth on 24 September 2013 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

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.

Lilian just finished her quilt in my Circular Bargello class. She had a fun time and it shows with the result of her beautiful quilt. She used yellow/gold through to brown fabrics. It is wonderful to see the different colors students use.
