Wow! What more can I say about the Minnesota 38th Annual Quilt show. I had a fabulous time teaching 7 different Electric Quilt classes and presenting my lecture on Specialty Rulers. I met an amazing group of women and saw some awesome quilts.
Check out the slideshow of a few of my favorite quilts from the judged and non-judged categories at the show. I will share some additional quilts from the special exhibits next week.

Importing Fabric Collections
One question I frequently hear is "How do I bring my fabrics into Electric Quilt?". Whether you are working with entire collections from manufacturers websites (my favorite source for fabric scans) or individual images or photos -- this Electric Quilt video tutorial will move you from JPG to EQ!
Featured Product - Private Coaching Program
I love to see my students succeed and am passionate about working with them to achieve their potential using Electric Quilt.
We all have different learning styles and I try to accommodate many of them with my various training options.
If you are ready to jump start or significantly expand your Electric Quilt expertise, my private coaching program may be for you. It is comprised of six 30+ minute sessions where I will guide you every step of the way on your EQ journey.
Coaching sessions use screen sharing technology and if you choose the VOIP option (that just means we use headphones on the computer to talk during the session) you can obtain a full video and audio recording of your private sessions.
You can choose what you want to work on including:
Meet Julia -- When we got started, Julia was a brand new Electric Quilt user. In our six sessions, she successfully completed the Introduction to EQ Class, the Easy Draw Drafting class and the Patch Draw Drafting class. All from the comfort of her home.
"I really enjoyed our individual coaching sessions! I must admit I was dubious about the benefits of this venue, but was very pleasantly surprised to find that I got exactly what I needed from your instruction. I loved that you took my questions and incorporated lessons around them. Your patience and skill are a winning combination for this type of lesson, and I would love to sign up for lessons again in the future. Thank you for working with me and helping me to better understand the functionality of EQ7 and how to get more comfortable with using it for my own design work!"

That was very informative. I think we'd had this instruction a long time ago but I'd forgotten and now I have it written down all stepped out. Thanks Kari. As long as we are just designing with it and would be buying the fabrics from them to make our designs, it wouldn't cross any copyright issues? I don't want to open any cans of worms but we all want to do what is right.

Lilia -- I had shown this technique before. But it was buried in a bigger video that covered other items as well. I don't see any copyright violations for copying the fabric images for designing a quilt. The reason the manufactures post the photos of their fabric is to promote fabric sales. They also have "share" buttons on their fabric collections -- again to promote their fabric. If I hear of any issues from the manufacturers, I will let you all know.

Oh my gosh! What a great tutorial. You are so good. Easy to understand. and informative. Is there any way I can save this so when I get ready to use it I can find it?

Thanks Carl. The videos are not downloadable -- but I never take them off my site. Feel free to bookmark the location. Just make sure you bookmark the one with the blog title in it. I also typically post my videos to my You Tube channel after a month (or so) -- so you can access them there as well.
