TQC-202 (Placemats) is OPEN for Registration - 25-27 October


This course is the follow-on class to the TQC-201 (Mugrugs) Course. You must have completed the MugRug Traditional Quilting Course before signing up to this course. This is a traditional quilting course in piecing nine blocks, 12-inch size. 
 
 
They can be finished as individual placemats or as a larger wall-hanging. It is possible to construct an entire bed size quilt, but more than nine of these blocks will be required...so you would need to duplicate some of them.

As with other courses, a private class blog will be established and you will be provided an invitation to that. If you would like to register for this course please send your Name, Email Address, and State/Country information to shaw.kathy@yahoo.com during the open registration period. No early or late registrations will be accepted.

BCQC is OPEN for Registration

Basic Crazy Quilting Course (BCQC) - OCTOBER 2016 - is open for registration...

 REGISTRATION will remain open until midnight on Thursday, October 13th (Central Standard Time)(This will be the last class for BCQC in 2016)
 
NOTE: I do not accept late or early registrations for classes...you need to register within the dates of the open registration period. I'm sorry, but I just have too much going on to keep up with early or deal with late registrations.
 
The FREE class is self-paced, and expected to take 4-8 weeks, depending on the time you have available to complete the 12 assigned Tasks.

 
 
These 12-Tasks include:
 
1 - How to Use the Class Blog
2 - Selecting Supplies
3- Design Principles of CQ
4 - Sewing the Block
5 - Surface Beading Techniques
6 - Template Seams
7 - Shape Seams
8 - 11 Various Silk Ribbon Flowers
12 - Finishing (lace, charms, etc.)
 
The class is FREE, you will not be charged anything for the instructions. You will need to obtain your own supplies as I do not sale kits.
 
Link to the Basic Supply List 
 
Basic CQ supplies include silk ribbon, pearl cotton threads, tiny beads, etc. as the photo above indicates. None of these are in large quantity for a single block that measures about the size of a sheet of print paper.
 
You will be required to use a quilting hoop (Q-snap is fine).
You WILL be required to access the private class blog (upon an invitation sent to you) and post photos of your work as you progress through the class. This is an ON-LINE course, so basic computer skills are needed (printing documents, uploading photos, etc.).

  If you are interested in taking this course, please email me at shaw.kathy@yahoo.com and provide me this information:
Your first name
Your last name
You country of residence
Your state of residence IF you live in the USA
The email address you wish me to send class instructional handouts to.
 
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. Watch for BOTH of these emails, check your spam folder. If you do not receive by Friday morning, 14 October...then please email me to let me know. I don't want you go get "behind" in class right at the start. :)
 
Because 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.
 
You will need to be able to take a photo of your work, and upload it to the class blog. You will get instructions on "blogging" so don't worry if you don't currently do that now; you will learn.
But, you DO NEED to have an operating camera and be able to take photos.
You do need a basic understanding of how to save these photos and then retrieve those picture files. IF you use an IPad to take photos...you will need to email them to yourself, download them to your computer, and then upload to the class blog. If you use a phone or camera...follow the instructions for that specific camera to upload photos to your computer.
 
NOTE: You will be given class handouts/instruction in the form of emails and pdf documents.
 The pdf files can be opened with Adobe Reader (free software on the Adobe.com site)

 You need to be able to open these handouts/instructions and save them.
You can also print as you desire. In total, the course contains over 200 pages of information...so paper/printer will be required if you want to retain a hard copy of this information.
 
Hugs, and I hope to see you in the class! 
 
This Basic CQ Class (BCQC) is a REQUIRED course...before you can sign up to any of the Intermediate (ICQC) crazy quilt courses offered throughout the year.
 
HUGS!

  There is no special supply list needed for this class. Standard sewing and embroidery supplies (as needed in prior classes) will be used. The need for some medium or heavy weight interfacing scraps and some thin felt/flannel scraps could require some shopping. 
 
The photos above are some of the techniques taught. The fox, bunny, and heart patterns are also in this course, along with other patterns as well. The mermaid silkie is an example of the over-stitching of hair...but you can use any printed image you want to try this technique.
 
As with all prior classes...an invitation to the course blog will be sent to you after you register. Watch for this in your email inbox so you will be ready to begin the class on Friday.
