Intelliquilter Summit is hopping!

I’m thrilled with the interaction of attendees on our Intelliquilter Machine Quilting Academy Summit.

Whilst tech can be challenging for us all, I believe this platform is allowing so many more to participate at a price that they can afford.

Yesterday I was thrilled to receive the FIRST of special photos from Anya in Montana, who has taken information from two classes and has been having so much fun simply playing with the possibilities. Now who else has pushed themselves to play more?

Anya from Montana – love it!
Love these swags – my favourite. Fabricating festhers I can also see…

Send me your play quilts and also customer quilts (with permission) showing any techniques you have learned so far.

Just a reminder that the Early Bird All Access Pass is ONLY available until the 10th class goes LIVE on the summit. Thereafter will be a new pricing structure. More details on this after the 8th live session is completed.

Looking forward to receiving more inspirational photos!

Where it all started

My love of quilting started very young when I was only 13 at High School. A Textile class where my teacher started us quilting making first a quilted oven mit then the journey of English Paper Piecing hexagons. My dad created two templates from metal for me to trace both my fabric shapes and card templates and I used my Grandmother’s huge stash of dressmaking fabrics to cut all my hexagons from.

All fabrics from the 80’s made from dressmaking scraps

This has never been finished, though worked on a couple of times over the years.

The next attempt at quilting was in 1991 when I signed up at a local TAFE college for 2 terms to learn all the basics of quilting. I made my first Queen sized sampler quilt over 8 months of non-stop stitching by hand. I was hooked!

I learned:

  • How to Draft my own patterns
  • Paper templates
  • English paper piecing by hand
  • American hand piecing
  • Hand applique – needleturn, freezer paper applique, fusible applique, reverse applique and more
  • Transfer quilting designs
  • Hand quilting with a hoop

This hobby is now a very solid one with much, much more to come that I had never dreamed possible!

Stay tuned for more…
