Not your 'typical' Attic Windows quilt!

Did you know that I teach online at the Academy of Quilting? Most of my workshops are 'On Demand' - you don't have to wait for a specific date to begin the class. 

And for the month of November, my workshops are 15% off!

Today I'd like to tell you about one of these On Demand workshops: Attic Windows.  Well - this isn't your 'typical' attic windows class. 

You know the ones, where the teacher tells you exactly what size to cut everything and your quilt looks just like the one your friend made in the class. Oh, maybe you have different fabrics for the windows but her quilt looks better than yours!

This is a class where you can make an Attic Windows quilt that works with YOUR fabric perfectly.  I will show you how to explore a variety of window options to suit your fabric and to design your own one-of-a-kind quilt. 

Ideas to test your design ideas will be presented and practised. You'll use graph paper and pattern drafting techniques and I'll give you feedback as you refine your design.

Then you will experiment with a variety of supporting fabrics to enhance your design. You'll choose these fabrics with attention to 'value', knowledge that will help you choose fabrics with more confidence in the future.

You will learn my fool-proof method to sew traditional mitered windows. This is a skill you'll have for any future project where you'd like to add a mitred border.

This is both a design and sewing class, suitable for confident beginners with rotary cutting skills and basic quilt making skills.

Why not join me in the Attic Windows classroom today. ENROLL HERE.

Here are some of the amazing and inspiring quilts made by students in this workshop.
