I love to quilt, and the only thing I might love more is teaching! I've led quilting workshops in 49 states and 25 countries, and I'm the author of more than 30 books, including the bestseller, Quilting for People Who Don't Have Time to Quilt.

I'm thrilled to be able to share my passion for quilting with you in of Craftsy's one–of–a–kind, interactive classroom in four classes on my favorite quilting techniques. I can't wait to see what you create — I hope you will join me! Watch previews of all my classes on the Craftsy site here.

Machine Quilting in Sections Craftsy Class

If you love the batik Scrappy Sedona Star quilt shown in the photo and want to make one like it...

The blocks are 15 inches finished made with Set R or the Multi-Size Peaky & Spike Set.

The step by step pattern is in "5 is Fabulous"
Volume 5 in our encyclopedia book series. The scrappy blocks are made using our "trading places" fabrication method. The book is about quilts with 5-inch units, and the Scrappy Sedona instructions are for a 110 inch finished quilt, including borders.

Without borders, the quilt is 90 inches finished. I skipped the borders and quilted it in sections, which I discussed in the Craftsy video using a different quilt.

At the time Volume 5 was published, the finished, quilted, batik Scrappy Sedona Star had no borders. Later on, I decided to add borders to the already quilted quilt using the encased seam method, which is discussed in the Craftsy video, demonstrated on a different sample because my quilt was alrady finished. Again, LOL! It's a great quilt, and it was entirely machine quilted in sections. You can do it, too.

Lastly, a variety of block sizes and quilt styles is given in our Scrappy Sedona Stars pattern, which predates the Machine Quilting in Sections and 5 is Fabulous books. It features quilts to make with 9-inch blocks (Sets A and C), 12-inch blocks (Sets B and D) and 5-inch blocks (Set R or the Multi-Size Peaky & Spike Set). Get info about the pattern and see those Scrappy Sedona Star quilts here. It's obvious we love Scrappy Sedona Stars! :)

Better, Faster Log Cabins

In my Better, Faster Log Cabins online video class, I'll show you a variety of methods for making gorgeous Log Cabins, including one that's perfect for fat quarters. You'll learn to select and layer fabrics for efficient and precise cutting, and the importance of cutting "logs" to length for easy, accurate sewing. I'll share tips and tricks for improving your Log Cabins immediately. We'll make Log Cabins using fat quarters and Curved Log Cabins, and I'll share a technique for joining blocks that minimizes the number of seams you have to match. We'll finish things up with my "no binding, no bulk" finishing method that you can use with other quilt designs, too.
