2018 Open Registration Dates


2018 REGISTRATION OPEN DATES:

BCQC-1 (Basic Crazy Quilting Course-1):

mandatory course before any others can be taken

15th-17th (January, March, May, July, September)

The BCQC-1 (Basic Crazy Quilt Course-1) is a “REQUIRED” course and must be completed before any other course can be taken. This course contains all of the basic handouts and general instructions that are also used in following courses.

BCQC-2 (Basic Crazy Quilting Course-2) (optional)

15th-17th (February, April, June, August, October)

The BCQC-2 (Basic Crazy Quilt Course-2) is not required…but I do encourage you to consider taking it after the BCQC-1 has been completed because covers two key elements for beginner/intermediate crazy quilters: 1) COLOR…all you ever wanted/needed to know about how to choose and use color in your work and 2) PLANNING…you will be given the keys to creating your own crazy quilt blocks without having to follow a set theme or pattern.

ICQC-103 (Intermediate Quilting Course-103):

5th-7th (February, May, August)

The ICQC-103 (Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course-103) is all about embroidery motifs. You’ll begin with basic types and expand that knowledge to include more complex embroidery patterns. Monograms in ribbon, beads, and embroidery are included in this course as well as more elaborate seam designs.

ICQC-104 (Intermediate Quilting Course-104):

5th-7th (March, June, September)

The ICQC-104 (Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course-104) is advanced motifs. It should be taken after the ICQC-103 is completed. This course included various motifs that include different applique methods, silk ribbon flower borders, dimensional applique and the creation of embroidery/beaded/printed slips.

ICQC-105 (Intermediate Quilting Course-105):

5th-7th (January, April, July, October)

The ICQC-105 (Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course-105) is advance silk ribbon motifs. A variety of printable design patterns are provided so you can easily print directly to fabric (or trace if you prefer). The silk ribbon will be 2mm, 4mm, 7mm, and 13mm in size giving a vast variety to the types of flowers you can create. Motifs will include minimal applique. The finished motifs are usually realistic floral designs except the last task. This “fantasy flower” task will help increase your creativity by designing floral elements that are more imaginative than following a specific pre-determined natural flower; the results are always surprising in their elegance and beauty.

All courses will remain free of charge. 
You do need to provide your own supplies. If special supplies are needed (items I'd not expect a crazy quilter to have in their normal stash, the class will have a supply list; At present this only includes the BCQC-1 and ICQC-105 courses)

NOTE: I hope to offer new courses this year as well…but must first get finished with my latest book proposal for C&T Publications which is due to them in April. So, perhaps I can work on new classes for release this summer after that.

I have not yet decided on the dates for the Traditional Quilting Courses or an Specialty Courses. When I do, the 2018 Annual Course Calendar will be adjusted. If you have questions about the courses, leave a comment below. Thanks!

I was so excited that the window for BCQ was opening later this week. Then I noticed it was for -2 and I haven't yet taken -1. So I moved the calendar reminder to October to take the -1. Now it will take forever for the end of October to get here. But I have time to finish a few other things hanging over my head so there will be an open playing field when I do start. Can't wait.
