Quilter's Academy
We have just added a great set of books (courses, actually) under Instructional Books on our products list - Quilter's Academy Volumes 1 thru 5. Learn to quilt with absolute confidence: these skill-building courses shows you how. Five books in the series each represent one year of "university." As a freshman, you'll learn the basics, from washing and preparing your fabrics, to sewing up 11 classic quilts. Sophomore year will inspire you to begin designing your own quilts, with loads of tips, techniques, and helpful charts. A bonus section with 11 projects will challenge you to go even further. Junior year brings with it eight new methods for your repertoire, focusing on the elusive triangle block in all its diversity. Discover new "internal frame" border ideas to make your quilts even more dynamic. Senior year focuses on complex blocks, such as stars, as well as advanced piecing techniques. Fill your creative toolbox with new ideas that allow you to enjoy the process of quiltmaking even more. After you have completed your Bachelor's level work by working through Volumes 1 through 4, it's time to advance your quilting studies to the Masters level.
