This was my first Quiltworx pattern. Kathy made it easy & kept checking in with me after she got me started. Mistakes were easily corrected. I took considerably longer than the 2-6 hours but it came out really well. I felt like I had the experience to tackle a… more complex pattern. Now I am doing Pepperdish with Kathy. With her organization and clear explanations this has been a great experience! Read more “Quiltster – Quiltworx Design Software – a Zoom Class”
Kathy is a great teacher and inspires you to want to jump right in! She will be there with you each step of the way! . I love how she will makes me feel comfortable doing classes on ZOOM!
I really enjoyed our class in Shipshewana doing Zen Garden. I thought your teaching was right on. Loved all of your short cuts and tips so our projects would come out perfect. Even at home as I continue my project, I can use your tricks. We really didn’t go thru… the instruction book. I don’t know if that was a good thing or not. I certainly have had no problem following along now that I’m at home. Lastly, I would like to know how you organize your instruction book(s). I know a lot of people use highlighters on certain instructions. How do you do it? Again thank you for a great class. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Shipshewana for future classes.

Quiltster – Quiltworx Design Software – a Zoom Class
May 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm CDT$30
Do you love making Quiltworx quilts — but are overwhelmed at the thought of designing your own? Getting a headache trying to imagine how it might look if you swap this color or that color and then understanding how to integrate your choices with your pattern? Calculating how much fabric to buy! It’s totally overwhelming!!!
Let’s change that!
Join me in this 3 hour Zoom Class where you will learn how to choose your pattern, add your own fabrics or choose from Judy’s palettes, place your colors into your quilt, print the necessary documentation or even use the Marketplace to buy your fabrics and design YOUR quilt! QUILTSTER is an amazing tool and you’ll have fun designing your quilts and realizing how easy it can be to point-and-click your way to your own personal Quiltworx Quilt! From standard Quiltworx patterns to creating your own MIXER — you’ll be ready to play (and play and play some more) on Quiltster. You do NOT need to be a highly-skilled computer user — the software is very user friendly and you’ll be a pro in no time at all.
You can join the class and just watch — but I strongly encourage you to register for Quiltster for yourself so you can work in your own account. Sign up for just 1 month to get you started and to be able to follow along in class “hands on…” – the best way to learn. You can choose to continue your subscription having fun playing with Quiltster Color and Quilt design. Love it? You can save money by purchasing their annual subscription ( Note: to have access to the cloud-based Quiltster program, you need to subscribe directly with Quiltworx / Quiltster. Again it’s a month to month subscription, you can drop any time, with a discount for a year long subscription. https://www.quiltster.com/subscribe )
Quiltster is cloud based and you can participate on your computer, tablet or phone. For class, you may want to consider using 2 devices — one for Zoom to see what I’m doing and hear what I’m saying — and the larger screened device with Quiltster so you can work at full screen capacity. If you are using a computer — you may want a good old-fashioned mouse to make placing your fabrics a little easier — not necessary – but helpful. Chrome is the preferred browser — so if you are on a tablet with Safari as your sole browser — you may want to install Chrome. It is free.
Want to learn more? Check out this 6 minute preview of the this three hour class! We offered ran it twice last year to rave reviews. (This video refers to the “upcoming December class, but the content for our May class will be nearly identical!
I look forward to seeing you in class as we ZOOM our way into our own CUSTOM “Judy” quilts.
