Adventures on YouTube.

Lately, I’ve been taking on some new things…like my most recent adventures on YouTube as of this morning. (Super super hot off the press…)

Warning: I still don’t have much of a clue what I’m doing, but I think it’ll be fun to figure it out. I’m hoping my YouTube channel will be a good place to add some of the video-ish content that I’ve been generating.

It all started with a request for a video from the folks with the Dallas Book Festival–an event that I’m delighted to be participating in this weekend on Saturday, April 30, 2016. Putting together the short video (here) was a great little challenge for me. It’s pretty basic, but the newness of it still made for a good challenge.

If you’re in Dallas, I’d love to see you there! I’m also teaching a workshop at Urban Spools following my presentation at the event.

2016 Mighty Lucky Quilting Club


Have you heard about the new Mighty Lucky Quilting Club? It’s a super new thing for 2016 brought to you by the team over at Lucky Spool Media (aka publisher of my book). The idea is that each month an instructor will lead design challenges focusing on a variety of worthwhile topics all with the goal of improving our quilt-making game. Sounds kinda fun, right?

I’m super excited to be on board. I always love thinking/teaching/sharing about quilting from the design standpoint. And, the way it’s set up should lead to some great discussions and interesting outcomes.

Plus, the other instructors are pretty amazing. Have you seen the lineup?

January – Krista Fleckenstein
February – Season Evans
March – Rossie Hutchinson
April – Alison Glass
May – Amy Gibson
June – Angela Walters
July – Cheryl Arkison
August – Sarah Fielke
September – Jacquie Gering
October – Nicole Vogelsinger
November – Amanda Jean Nyberg
December – Carolyn Friedlander (me!)
Wanna join the club? Head over here for more info and to sign up.

QuiltCon West.

Hi hi!

Well tomorrow (June 25, 10am EST) registration opens for QuiltCon West. Because of that, I thought I’d share the three classes that I’ll be teaching. It should be fun!

Combine appliqué, paper piecing and color theory with this strip-friendly project from my book. I will walk you through the techniques involved as well as how to create your own color story with this bold and versatile project.

+ 110 Catenary Quilt . Saturday, Feb. 20, 9am-5pm

Learn to love handwork with my architecture-inspired project, Catenary. It’s a great project for picking up and refining your needle-turn appliqué skills. We’ll also discuss how decisions in fabric selection and block placement can impact the look of the design and flavor of your project.
