edit: All links are good to go now. So sorry for the technical issues this morning!


So I was wondering what you would say if I were to ask you what is the most common question I get, what do you think it would it be?

There are always questions about designing fabric, about my color palette, about how I learned to do what I do. Then there are questions about my studio and how I organize my fabric and how I design patterns and how I decorate.

But easily the most common questions or confusion I get from my students regarding quilting is about angles. Hands down. There is something about working with bias and angles that either scares the "bijeebies" out of us or we have never really learned how to work with them in the first place. The result is that we make so many mistakes right off the bat that we give up and declare… "I can't do angles" or " I can't work with bias" or "that is just way to hard for me, there's just no way!"


Well as I started thinking about what I wanted to do for my second CRAFTSY class, it was not hard to decide that I wanted to focus on angles and answer all those angle questions on camera where all of you could look at it again and again until you feel confident enough to do it yourself. And the idea for this class was born.

In the class, I start with some angle basics and a fairly straightforward quilt and work with the techniques that we learn in the class to build some wonderful designs and quilts.  I address common problems and mistakes and show you variations and different ways of adapting the projects.

I am so excited to share this class with you that I am just a bit giddy. I guess this doesn't just feel like a class to me but like me answering your questions in a way that  I KNOW WILL HELP YOU!

    Just signed up, thanks for the 50% off, really want to do the Jelly Girl and the Diamonds, I have your pattern for the diamonds but have been leary to start it, angles you know, I have done one like the stars but it was very intimidating Lorraine

  21. Anita | 21st Apr 15

    Love your projects! Are you going to be offering kits for Sunset Stars? Love how you combined your collections

  22. Sharon Bennett | 22nd Apr 15

    Awesome! I very much enjoyed your first Craftsy Class… Very clear and informative! I’m looking forward to taking this new one now too. Signing up for it today and will hopefully have time to watch it this weekend! 🙂

  23. Judy in MI | 22nd Apr 15

    This class just popped up in my inbox from Craftsy this morning without the discount. I quickly added it to my wishlist to come back to later….then I got this email! So…it’s no longer in my wishlist but rather in my online class list. Thanks so much! Can’t wait to sew along with you!

  24. Marcia Reel | 22nd Apr 15

    I signed up!

  25. Joanna | 3rd May 15
