New Class with Electric Quilt University
Big news. I am officially an instructor with Electric Quilt University. EQ provided me a great opportunity to combine video tutorials with detailed written instructions.
My first class with them is on Octagon Table Toppers. It is starting in early January -- so register now to ensure you spot in the first session.
Octagon Table Toppers is one course in the Small Quilts with a Twist series. I will help you create master templates for unique quilt styles to use over and over again. While this class is only 2 weeks long, the lessons are jam-packed with amazing content.
Here are a few of the quilts covered in the class.
Introduction to Applique - An Electric Quilt Video Tutorial
I decided to go ahead with the 2nd block on row 3 as it allows me to cover some of the basics of drafting applique blocks in Electric Quilt. I will save the other block (which covers a couple of different tools) for a future video.
I then discuss using the Bezier curve to draft the shapes. (For those of you that use Art and Stitch, the Bezier curve works quite a bit differently between the programs.) I then review editing the shapes.
HINT: The goal in drafting applique is to minimize the number of nodes.
Love your Electric Quilt Private Coaching Program
The program will be formally released next week at Fall Quilt Market -- but I wanted to give my loyal blog readers and newsletter subscribers first shot at obtaining one of these limited number of spaces, including some Early Bird discounts if you sign up by October 31st.

Let's Go Fly a Kite Stacking Pop-Up
Her Pop-Up pattern is incredibly popular. And they are so fun to make. I'll share more with you (and maybe a video demo of the pop-up in action) on a future blog post.
