Attn. Tech Know Quilters Current and Prospective Members
I am looking forward to May where I will be releasing my latest class on bargello quilts. These won't be just the traditional bargello quilts (although I do have a few cool tricks to share on creating those in EQ8). But you will also learn how to create some bargello-like blocks and additional layouts to highlight those blocks.
Would you like to see the Bargello projects that will be included in the lessons? Join me on Saturday April 20, 2018 at 11:00 Central Time for a Facebook live reveal on the On Point Quilter Facebook page. You can also ask any questions on the class -- or the Tech Know Quilters program in general. Join me here.
Hope to see you there. If you miss the live event, you may also catch the replay on my Facebook page.
April Showers Brings May Flowers
The snow is melting, and there is no forecast for additional snow this weekend. It might be slightly optimistic, but I am looking for signs of spring by early May. Can I hope for some flowers (other than from grocery store)?
In the April Showers quilt we will be adding some May flowers to our wall quilt. Check out how to draft them using Electric Quilt 8 in this video tutorial.
For those that want to forget the showers (or the late snow storms), consider a quilt layout that just includes the flowers(no instruction provided).
April Showers Free Piecing Instructions
With the April Showers mystery Electric Quilt project and quilt, I am teaming up with Tina Dillard the owner, designer, teacher and publisher of Quilting Affection Designs.
I will share with you how to create the quilt in Electric Quilt, and Tina will share with you how to actually make the quilt on her blog.
Click here to get instructions for piecing the May Flowers blocks in this week’s video tutorial. Here is Tina's pieced quilt to date. I love how this is coming together.
