Registration is OPEN for ICQC-101 (Design Plans and Block Piecing)

Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course (ICQC)-101
Designing and Piecing Crazy Quilt Blocks
is now OPEN for Registration
You are "eligible" for this class IF you have finished the Basic Course (BCQC) OR are currently enrolled in that course (It's not easy to do both courses at the same time...but is possible; so I'm allowing that this year).

Registration will close at midnight 30 July (Saturday) , Central Standard Time
The class will begin on 31 July and should take no more than 4-6 weeks to complete. 
These mini classes comprise this ICQC-101 course:
A - Printing on Fabric
B - Color Theory
C - Selecting Fabrics
D - Designing Blocks
E - Adding Lace & Trims
F - Piecing CQ Blocks
The class is FREE, you will not be charged anything for the instructions.
Link to the Basic Supply List 
You WILL be required to get your own supplies to complete the different class tasks. 
  If you are interested in taking this course, please email me at and provide me this information to register:
Your first name
Your last name
You country of residence
Your state of residence IF you live in the USA
The email address (if different) you wish me to send class instructional handouts to.
The email address (if different) you wish me to use for Class Blog Access.
After you register, I will send you a Welcome Email and Google/Blogger will send you (at my request) an Invitation to join the Class Blog where the class will be held. 
This is an ON-LINE internet class
You will need to follow some simple instructions to register and gain access to the private class blog. Your name and email will need to be entered; but NO social security or credit card information is required. Just basic information to "recognize" you as a class participant. We will follow the same process you used in the Basic Class.
This is the first module of the Intermediate level courses; while it does NOT involve a lot of sewing or does involve a lot of thinking! We will cover Color Theory...and you will select various groups of colors. We will discuss the various types of designs for piecing CQ blocks...and when to use the different types of blocks. You will be practicing these designs by applying the guidelines...and then designing your own blocks on paper. You will sew at least one block as the last task...using any of the designs covered in the course. So, while there is not a huge requirement for fabrics, etc...there IS a lot of thinking that happens.
Hugs, and I hope to see you in the class!

How generous of you dear. However I cannot imagine being able to keep up with two classes. I can barely do my BCQC tasks. This heat has me zapped and now I have strep throat. Next week will be better! Embracing Creative Bliss...

For those of you considering this class, I just wanted to say that I wholeheartedly recommend it. I took this class a little over a year ago and I learned so much from it.
