Excellent Class!

I have been using Quiltster for about 6 months, but I wanted to know more.   I was concerned about how Kathy was going to fill 3 hours on the use of the Quiltster app. Kathy was extremely organized and very

Great foundation for foundation paper piecing!

I was thrilled when I found this class for the Twinkle Star. I wanted to be introduced to Judy Niemeyer paper piecing and this was the perfect way to do it. I thought I was going to have to do

Hands down the best Quiltworx class I have ever taken!

For the first time in over 9 years I finally know what to do and how to read Quiltworx pattterns!  I owe it all to Kathy Groves and her BobKat Quilts zoom classes. I love the fact that if I

Carnival Flower – Zoom Class – Register Now!

February 26, 2023 @ 10:00 am - March 31, 2023 @ 1:00 pm CST

$300.00 – $465.00

We had a great intro class on Jan 21, but you can still join – Register today, you can watch the recorded classes and be ready for our next class!

NOTE:  it’s not too late to join us!  While we may have held a class or two — they are fully recorded and the schedule gives you lots of time to “catch up”.  Many students didn’t even receive their fabric kits until late February!  I’m always available for questions…  so if you are on the fence thinking “maybe it’s too late — NOPE!  Join us!  


The two quilts – Wall (80″ x 80″) and the Queen (99″ x 99″) include all of the techniques that make Quiltworx special!  From their newprint Template Layout Sheets for fabric prep, to ALL of the sewing foundations — not to mention their detailed and graphics intensive written instructions which make their quilts do-able by everyone — even confident beginners!

The Zoom Series (like all of my classes) will be recorded so you will have access to all instruction and teaching support materials for MANY months after the live class sessions conclude.  And you receive my guarantee to be available for questions and support until your quilt top is finished!

The first class session will be a general introduction to the pattern and the class series.  It will be my goal to help you understand all of the quilt’s components, where each of the fabrics go, how to prepare your papers, cut and organize your fabrics and much more.  I’ll even provide fabric and bag labels to help you get organized.

Classes will be on ZOOM live but recordings will be available 24-48 hours after each live session.  And look for the additional technique support videos!

Class #1 —Introduction session met on Saturday, January 21 – Recorded for new registrants and review.

Class #2 –  Saturday, February 18 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM (lots of time between #1 and #2 to get organized, purchase fabrics, etc!!)

Class #3 – Saturday, March 18 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Class #4 – Saturday, April 1 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM (no foolin’ !)

Class #5 – Saturday, April 22, from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Class #6 – Saturday, May 20 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Class #7 – Saturday, June 3 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Class #8 – Saturday, July 15 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM

I’ve spread things out quite a bit to allow lots of sewing time so that hopefully by the time class ends you will have your quilt nearly completed!  That’s the goal but if it doesn’t work out that way — no problem!  Sew as you can and the videos will be there to support you as needed.

My fee will include the pattern — DISCOUNTED approximately 15% off retail!  So if you are purchasing a kit — I suggest you purchase fabric only – so you can save a few $$ on the pattern.  But if you have the pattern — you can purchase just the instruction.  Note:  final pattern prices are higher than anticipated — so those already registered, you’re good!  But I’ve had to adjust the pricing going forward.  Sorry for the confusion.

Deposits are refundable up through December 15, 2022.  Payment in full is due by January 10th (and must be received before your pattern will be shipped).  I will invoice for balances due in Mid December – I’ll need to know  your pattern size preference.  Patterns will not ship until early 2023 (as soon as I can get them in from Quiltworx!)

We are also offering an in-person retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana April 25 – April 29  featuring Carnival Flower!  Register  and pay for the Carnival Flower version of the retreat by January 20 and get this zoom class free.   Click here for more  information

Lots of Shortcuts…

I loved Kathy’s enthusiasm!. The class eval didn’t go high enough — it topped out at “Outstanding”. I learned lots of shortcuts. The class was challenging because I tend to be slower sewing in a

Beautiful Tea Time Placemats

Enjoyed this Zoom class sponsored by my guild.  Kathy made me feel at home with my skill level. She gave great tips and was eager for all of us to have completed  projects.  She did not leave us hanging –
