QuiltCon Together 2021 General Registration is Now Open for Everyone!

I sure am glad that The Modern Quilt Guild knows how to make lemonade out of lemons. Earlier this year when it became apparent that there would be no big public quilting events through the end of the year, The MQG made the decision to go virtual for their show next February and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!

Due to the online nature of this event, more people will be able to participate! Class sizes are still limited, but I made my schedule available so that I could handle the most number of students allowed per class. Each of my workshops will also offer an enhanced version which means you’ll get some extra bonus time with me live and a small group of other fellow students, in addition to the pre-recorded part of the class.

Here’s everything I will be teaching and there’s still room left to sign up for any and all of them:

Carefree Walking Foot Quilting

DSM008 – On Demand with Optional Live Q&A

Learn to stitch beyond the ditch and unleash the power of your walking foot to quilt modern or traditional designs. Walking foot motifs to be taught include wavy lines, decorative stitches, irregular grids, large continuous spirals, several straight line variations and more! You’ll leave class armed with the confidence that yes, you can quilt your own quilts!

Walking Foot Quilting

The continuous spiral is just one of the many quilting motifs we’ll learn in Carefree Walking Foot Quilting. This is a detail shot from my Sparkling Stars quilt. (Pattern available here.)

Carefree Free-Motion Quilting

DSM009 – On Demand with Optional Live Q&A

Embrace perfectly imperfect quilting! That means little to no marking and a whole lot of gorgeous texture. Ease into free-motion quilting with asymmetrical wavy lines, then move onto loops, traditional and modern stippling, plus curvy fillers like wishbones and cursive l’s that can expand to fit any space. Finish it off with several swirl variations, and you’ve got a toolbox of motifs to try on your next quilt!

Panel: Quilting Perspectives

LE17 Saturday February 20, 11:00 AM

Hear from a varied team of panelists about their quilting plan and process, and how they approach a finished top. Hand quilting, machine quilting, and long arm quilting will all be represented on the panel. Scheduled panels are me, Tia Curtis, Sandra Johnson, and Riane Menardi Morrison.

How Do I Quilt It? Live Lecture

LE29 Sunday February 21, 5:00PM

The secret to successful quilting is in the planning and preparation. I’ll guide you through the steps I take to make each quilting experience fun and stress free.

Once you see my methods, you’ll feel empowered to quilt your own quilts! Learn how I baste my quilts, make a quilting plan, choose thread colors, divide and conquer each task, and apply rich texture with little to no marking of the quilt. I’m also excited to share my quilts and answer any questions you may have.

All of the lectures at QuiltCon Together will be offered live in real time. But the best part about this show is that you’ll have access to all registered workshops and lectures for the duration of the event!
