Teaching Crazy Quilting

I had a wonderful day with my students yesterday!  2 sweet ladies from DeKalb came up to learn Crazy Quilting from Start to Finish.  I taught them how to do the Sew & Flip method of foundation piecing and how to embroider the seams with both my Waste Canvas Technique as well as Carol Samples Dream A Seam Templates technique.  I also showed them how to do basic Silk Ribbon Embroidery stitches.

Today, we'll be beading, embellishing and finishing into a door pillow.

I'm thinking of offering another class for Crazy Quilting.  I see the need for Basic Embroidery stitches such as the Lazy Daisy stitch, Stem stitch, Feather stitch, Herringbone stitch and so on.  I could combine it with Silk Ribbon Embroidery.  I'll start working on putting that class together in a week or so and then offering that option.

For now, I have to get myself together for today!

Hi Pam,
Gosh I wish I could come to one of your classes! It was fun to read about your trip to Galena. When we were there in August, they'd just had a flood, so the quilt shop was closed. I got to go to the yarn shop though. :) Have a great evening.

Have fun with your class Pam! I keep looking for a group around here to get together with but haven't found any serious quilters. Not in a position to travel and take a class right now. I have a off-the-beaten-path question...how do you photograph your blocks so nicely to show all the sparkle?
