Online Learning - Academy of Quilting

We are officially up and running at the Academy of Quilting!  The January class schedule has been posted and you can sign up for classes now.

Will join me for these classes?

January 17 - Seminole Piecing
Seminole Piecing is a patchwork method used by the Seminole people of south Florida to enhance their garments. I will show you how to create eight bands of patchwork using simple rotary cutting and basic piecing techniques. The magic comes when you cut the units apart and sew them back together. You will be inspired by my suggestions to use the bands to trim garments and home décor items. You will learn to make a tote bag, bolster pillow and wall quilt. Level: Advanced beginner and up.

January 31 - Paper Piecing Paradise
Paper piecing, foundation piecing, sew and flip, whatever you call this method, using it you will give you perfect blocks and no more chopped off points! During this class, I will show you how to create your foundations, select and prepare your fabrics and how to sew perfect blocks every time. Even traditional blocks can be pieced this way; it is not just for small blocks or unusual blocks with sharp points. You can make the layout as shown in the class sample or rearrange the blocks to create a sampler or a completely different scene. This is a paper piecing starter class, suitable for beginners with basic quilt making skills.
