Block of the Month Club

I'm thrilled to tell you that I started my first Block of the Month on May 1st, 2013.  It is as a result of many requests for the pattern for my "Star and Plume" quilt, pictured below. A second batch of quilters started it on December 15th, 2013. A third group started June 1st, 2015 and a FOURTH started June 2016!

There will be a NEXT group, starting soon. You can be part of that group!

Making this quilt made me a better quilter.

If you didn't sign up for this BOM, but are interested in following along with the progress of everyone's quilts, visit the Star and Plume blog:

Mock Mola pattern: Rose Window

This quilt uses my Mock Mola technique, but this time with a pieced underlay. Complete instructions and pattern are included.  This is not difficult, but is a bit complex (sewing and cutting), so I'm calling this one suitable for Intermediate quilters.  But if you're a beginner, you can certainly give it a go - I'm here to help!!

Secure Website

We have made it easier for you to order any of my CDs, songbook or patterns!  You can now, with a click of a mouse button, order my stuff and pay for it through PayPal, without having to print off the order form and mail it. (But you can still do that, if you want to, too, by going to the Order Form.) Visit the "Recordings", "Songbook", or "Patterns" page, and click on the items you wish to order.  Then you can View Your Cart at any time to finalize your purchase.  Easy!

The Quilt Show Episode 1204

My episode of The Quilt Show, with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson went on air as of February 11, 2013!  This is very exciting for me. I demonstrated my Mock Mola Appliqué technique, as well as my new class "Notan: Exploding the Square".  We sang some songs, and talked for a bit, as well. Do you see the Star and Plume quilt behind us?

 

You can see the trailer for this show on The Quilt Show's blog.

You can also see the behind-the-scenes slide show.

They have made my Star and Plume quilt into their weekly jigsaw puzzle!  This is too exciting for me, since I'm a jigsaw puzzler from way back.  You can play it too: Star and Plume jigsaw puzzle.


 

Classes

This year I have put together a new class called: Hexagons: State of the Art.  This is an overview class of every technique I can find of how to do hexagons (and other shapes). It includes a Mennonite technique of making hexagons that resemble yo-yos (with no templates), traditional English Paper Piecing, Quilt-as-You-Go hexies, and various versions of pieced hexies, some of which are done on the machine. To find out more, check out the Classes tab.

 There are lots of new pictures of students' work on the link www.singingquilter.com/classresult.htm. The new Notan designs have been spectacular!

Stitched

Jena Moreno has put together a wonderful documentary about 3 art quilters and their preparations for Houston Quilt Festival.  The three people profiled are: Caryl Bryer Fallert, Hollis Chatelain, and Randall Cook.  It has just received a wonderful review from Quilting Arts magazine. Two of my songs were used as part of the film. At the Houston Festival in November (2011) I attended a screening of the film and got to hobnob with the stars!!!
