Inside an Online Class

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.

Quilts from students in online class

Today I wanted to share with you some of my students quilts made in my online classes. I have chosen one class "Bargello Seasons" in which the students make four different quilts for the class. They are presented in seasons to give a different color palette for each quilt. Of course, the student isn't committed to use the colors I have if they choose not to. They can make the quilts in any color ways they prefer.

Free Online Quilting Class

A lot of quilters ask "how do you take an online quilting class?". Everyone seems very interested and eager to try so I decided to make it easy for quilters and sewers to learn by writing a short class for newcomers to experience the concept of online quilt learning. Instead of just a question and answer page, I wanted a hands on experience and so the book cover with applique flowers was born. It is a wonderful creative idea for a gift with your personal touch.

Catching up with Quilting

Posted by Ruth on 1 January 2011 | 2 Comments

During the Christmas/New Year period, I like to catch up on some unfinished work or make a start on a new project - time permitting of course. It is not always possible, but this past season I did achieve more than expected. I remade one of my patterns in new colors, I quilted another which had been waiting for over a year to be quilted and I finally wrote up and made a new sample for my Bargello in Summer pattern.
