Video Classes.....

I have has so many people come into my shop asking if I teach classes. The answer unfortunately is no. I just don't have enough time or enough room in the shop. So I've decided, if I can figure it out lol I will post video classes on my blog. The first is How to achieve a true quarter inch seam. I truly believe there are 3 fundamentals of quilting. If you can master these three fundamentals you will achieve success!

1. Cutting accurately
2. True Quarter Inch Seam
3. Pressing not ironing

Hope you enjoy the video... Next up is How to make a mitered corner receiving blanket! It's very fun and very easy! So stay tuned........

Thank you so much for sharing. I am so happy to have this lesson to refer to. I love that template it looks like it would be so much easier for me to work with then my long ruler:)

Cool! Thanks! I've got a baby, so taking an actual, in-person, quilting class is out of the question for a while...so this is awesome for me! Thanks!

Thanks for the tips. I am now going out to try and find that 'thing' you put on top of the material and cut through it to get your squares! What an awesome tool.

Great video. I couldn't agree more about proper pressing of seams. More often than not when helping someone with a block the problem has been in the pressing. It can make or break the block. Sometimes some planning in needed! Keep up the great work.

Thank you!!! I want to learn all the tricks but don't want to bother anyone. Everyone says they don't mind going over quilting tips with me but you can only ask so much... So, THANK YOU for sharing. I look forward to more instructional videos as well... no matter how simple or complex.

Thanks so much, that is so helpful to a newbie like me! I love that tool you have too, I hadn't heard of it. I will go and see if I can find one now! I only have the long ruler.. Brilliant! Looking forward to more tutorials. (btw, love the way you dismiss the cameraman at the end.. 'that's enough love.. beat it!' ha ha, was that your husband?
