There are free how-to videos that go with the Sizzle book. You can find them soon with my classes on Creative Spark. Until then, you can find them on YouTube. Go to YouTube, search for C&T Publishing to find their channel. Once there, type in Sizzle in the search box.
Thank you, Debbie, for sharing your lovely quilts with us! Well done, you!
Gwyn Jalbert took my online Tile Tango class with the Palmetto Quilt Guild. Interestingly, Gwyn lives in Kitchener, Ontario but her guild is in South Carolina. The internet makes long distance classes so easy!
She finished 4 flowers to make the complete block below. She did a lovely job on the appliqué and I love the fall colors she chose! Thank you, Gwyn, for sharing your block with us!
Gwyn said… “I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the class I took with you on Oct. 16 with the Palmetto Quilt Guild. Here is the block I have completed I am working on the next one and I will probably do the Tile Tango quilt. I am really enjoying the needle turn applique and I see my stitches and technique getting better with the practice. Thanks again.”
All of the classes on Creative Spark are priced to provide a fair income to the teachers. About half of the money goes to the support the people doing the behind-the-scenes work at Creative Spark, the other half goes to the instructor.
You may not think about it often, but free or practically free content does not support the teacher. At some point, we all need to make a living. Most of my income comes from teaching. Income from the products I sell on my website goes to Lorna and Judy, who work for me.
We all choose where to spend our dollars… I’m sharing this information to give you information that you may not know. Happy stitching!
Liz Poitras sent in these photos of the Magical Unicorn quilt that she made for her granddaughter. Isn’t it wonderful, magical, and perfect for a little girl’s bed! Liz, well done you!
Since March, I’ve been working on Magical Thinking for my granddaughter. I just have to finish the binding. I had it custom quilted by Krista Zaleski. She did a fabulous job so I wanted to share it with you. Most of the fabric is Allison Glass. The eyelashes and little white spot in the eye were challenging. I finally decided to embroider those two pieces.
I also included a picture of the back of the quilt. My granddaughter also wanted hearts on up her quilt so I decided to make a rainbow of hearts on the backing made with the 4 different fabrics for each colour. Thanks for your help and support this Spring. Liz
Thank you, Liz, for taking the time to share the photos and story of your quilt. I know it must put a big grin on your face when you image your granddaughter dreaming beneath it :-).
Ellen Harris from Huntsville, AL sent me this photo of her finished Aunt Millie’s Garden. She saw a post on Pinterest that inspired the aqua fabric for the background. Oange and blue are complementary colors and together they make a great foundation of color to support the other colors in the quilt.
The back has a hand embroidery piece appliqued on that says: “May I a small house and a large garden have.”
Well done, Ellen! And thank you for sharing your lovely quilt with us!
Margery Tadder in Colorado Springs sent me this picture of her just finished Magical Unicorn quilt. It’s perfect! Margery says that she is delighted with it and I can see why. I really like the way that sky fabric fills the background, and the grass! Both fabrics set the stage for the whole quilt.
Margery wrote: “My long arm quilter was so enamored she took a picture and sent it to a friend who promptly bought the pattern! But who could NOT love everything Designed by Becky! The quilt will be a Christmas present for a special 4 yr old girl and know she will be thrilled especially since unicorns are her “thing” right now.”
There will be squeals of delight on Christmas morning :-). Well done, Margery!
