A Sneak Peek into my Dream, Learn, Quilt! online class

Some of you have asked about what we cover in Dream, Learn, Quilt, my 6 week online class to get you from dreamer to maker of quilts. Well, here’s a fun interview I did with Kerry Hubbard of Curly Girl Quilts. This is from Week 6 of the class, we’d covered lots of fun lessons by this point, but this interview answers all the questions about what exactly is this whole “long arm quilting” subject! Kerry breaks it all down for us.

Dream Learn Quilt! online class

The next session of my online class, Dream, Learn, Quilt! will begin on March 5th and registration is now officially open! The last session was a huge success- great group of students and lots of beautiful work. In fact, we are all still actively supporting each other in a private FB group as we work on our quilts. I couldn’t be happier, it was everything I could have hoped and more.

Marking My Quilt Tops with a Hera Marker

Hera Marker in use

I have used many things to mark my quilt tops for quilting, but these days I use a Hera Marker most frequently. For straight line quilting I used to use painter’s tape. I would mark the line across the quilt with a length of this tape and stitch beside it. It works great. Until it doesn’t. Sometimes I accidentally stitch over the edge of the tape and I’m left looking for tweezers to pull the little pieces of tape off.
