A series of fall pictures from the past couple of years showing you where I live and some of our fav place to travel to with in a hour of home.
My First Class had this as a final product circa 1986
Part of the 100 blocks in my Tula Pink City Sampler
And a few Highland games pic so you get an idea of what it is all about, I to about 8-10 a year with my husband in the Midwest. We did go to Scotland once, that’s another story.
Another item mentioned in the Pod cast is the Quick Curve Ruler
Here is a post earlier about RenFest
Leave a comment about what you think about my beginner class ideas and any thing else mentioned in the podcast! .
I like knitting, but I have to be careful of my hands and can’t do much of it. I like the idea of a cowl. I should try one. I am a pretty slow knitter as well.
I am glad you do custom/free motion quilting. I use a longarmer who only does that for me. (she has recently got a computer attachment and can do automatic longarming for those who don’t care). She has real skill and never complains. I prepare my quilts in exactly the way she wants them and we get along fine. I have had others do some longarming for me and the whining is terrible! They only do pantographs. They won’t quilt a quilt with 8 pointed stars. They won’t quilt quilts where the seams are pressed to the side. The list goes on and on.
I agree that learning in a sampler class really prepares people for any kind of quilt. I do think that doing a small project so there is a sense of accomplishment before starting a sampler might get people interested. The fabric, of course, is crucial.
Have a great day.
Wow, I can’t believe the long armers wailing! I figure that every quilt deserves to be finished and I can learn on every one that is on my frame. It is a win/win for everyone. I am really trying to get more people in our little town interested in quilting and all types of quilting. Hopefully I will have a class someday at the local shop, so far no one has signed up.
Wonderful podcast. I thoroughly enjoy listening to your voice and interesting snippets of life on the other side of the globe.
I’m doing the Tula Pink challenge of Instagram. Up to block 38. Yours is lovely and colourful. I’m using up some Joel Dewberry fabrics so limiting my fabric choices. I’m Madamcaterpillar on Instagram
Cheers from New Zealand.
Another great episode, Vicki! Keep ’em coming!
Jaye (Art Quiltmaker) would be a great person to discuss beginner’s classes with, especially if you’re thinking about doing a sampler.
Thanks Frances! I am hoping this class is a go. I will ask Jaye whay her experience is. So far I am learning the how to edit. Maybe I will have an intro next time. Thanks for listening!
