Paper-Pieced Quilts Part 1 on Creative Bug

Howdy! Today, the first part of my Paper-Pieced Quilts Class goes live on Creative Bug. (Here’s the link.)

I’ve been pretty excited about this class, because the format is a bit longer–it’s a 2-part workalong, with the first part going live today and the next going live in 1 week. What’s cool about that is that I was able to cover more ground.

In the class, we start with designing the block, how to paper piece all of the blocks, assembling the top, quilting it(!) and binding it. It really is about making a quilt start to finish.

The finished project is this wall hanging-sized quilt. But of course, it’s super easy to make larger by making more blocks if that’s your thing.

And you might recognize the fabric, it’s all Carkai, which was really fun to plan out.

Oh, and while I’m at it, I thought I’d share some of your work from my other Creative Bug classes (from applique and Polk) that I recently spotted. I’m LOVING what you guys are making!

I hope you find the class super informative and loads of fun. Let me know what you think!

Needle-turn Applique Class with Creative Bug.

Good news, my first class with Creative Bug is now live–yay! It’s all about one of my favorite techniques–needle-turn applique.

I filmed with Creative Bug last August, and have been eager to share with you the fruits of our labor. The Creative Bug team is incredibly talented and passionate about what they do, which is why I was thrilled to get the chance to work with them.

In this first class, I show you how I like to do needle-turn applique in an Hawaiian-inspired block which features fabrics from my newest collection, Carkai.

I hope you like it!
