On Saturday Nov 26 (for Region of York Quilters Guild) & today Nov 30 ( for Royal City Quilters Guild), I offered on zoom my class Quilting with Rulers For Domestic Machines. This is a pre taped, one day class where I provide guidance, answer questions, trouble shoot etc. for the entirety of the workshop. They were fun! I could not believe how creative & innovative these quilters are. Below is a picture of my studio, I sprawl out all of my ruler supplies, notions & quilting samples much like a live class, ready to bring on a total of 28 students! Thanks to all who coordinated and to those who participated! Need more info about my classes?

Happy Friday ! The end of the work week for some, time for creative pursuits & fun for others. Gotta love weekends. I’m sharing today to inspire you! Maybe this weekend you’ll dust off your rulers & try them ?
On Tuesday I taught my Interlocked Ruler Work class For Long Arm Machines at Creekbank Sewing in Mount Forest and I thought I would show you what the students accomplished. They came to class with their Interlocked quilt top all sewn together & then we worked on filling the spaces with ruler & free motion fill work. For those of you don’t know Interlocked is my pattern available here. Pictures of all of our work is shown below.

Simply sharing to inspire. Photos of some recent long arm quilting finishes for a customer, she loves civil war/traditional quilts & piecing. Her colour arrangements are lovely.
I quilted these two quilts on my BERNINA Q20 Long Arm Machine using "Angel Wings" and "Marocco" pantographs & the BERNINA #9 Free Motion Foot. Hand guided edge to edge quilting work with my lazer light. It was a pleasure to work on & see this customers quilts!
Have a great wednesday ☀️
l had an awesome full classroom yesterday with "Explore Thread Painting". This class was held at Creekbank Sewing in Mount Forest. This is a beginner thread painting class where we thread painted an appliquéd sunflower on woodgrain fabric making a gorgeous art quilt. In this class, I showed participants how to machine appliqué the easy way. Threads, needles and appropriate machine techniques were discussed. This is a beginner thread painting project and after completion of this class students will be able to add thread painted motifs to their own quilted projects or make artistic home decor and expand on this technique. Special Thanks to all who attended the class! You were wonderful! Also as shown below, fabulous work!❤️ I hope to see more of your thread painted work in the future!
Check out some images of participants in action below:

In case any of my followers want to know what's going on behind the scenes when there is radio silence from me. Trust me nothing is ever silent in my world! I believe life is for living & pursuing passions. Therefore behind the scenes there is always a behive of creative activity! Just a few minutes ago at 630am I was responding to Bernina Blog comments. Last evening I was working on my Bernina Q20 & a customer quilt. I was also prepping for a Thread Painting Class at Creekbank Sewing this Tuesday and reviewing my new Crumb Pieced Star In a Star Pattern (soon to be available on my website). So yes radio silence is non existent!
Some photos of the "Behive" are shown below
Oh yes & I forgot to mention, I have a mini tutorial to prep for monday with my tiny sewing group. We are making chicken mittens.
Oh darn, I have a demo Monday night I better get on it. But that's after I take in the St Jacobs Market today! Have a great weekend everyone. Stay warm, it's starting to feel like fall! brrr🍁
After a busy summer, I was finally able to complete my Crumb Pieced Star in a Star quilt sample for my newest class. Such a great process to revisit some gorgeous fabric, make new fabric, reuse, recycle, sustainable type scrappy quilting with an organized vision. My kind of scrappy! It's heavily quilted and quilting suggestions are discussed in this class. If you are interested in a class and have a group of 10 or more people, feel free to get in touch to organize a class with me. The math is done for a 18 x 18", 27 x 27" or 55 x 55" quilt. Get in touch with me here & check out my teaching page to see other samples for this class, scroll down to see photos. The pattern in now available on my shop page!
Have a great week!
