I thought I would share with you what kinds of comments I got on my blog.  The question I asked people to answer was,

 What’s the number one thing you would like to learn/improve in your art quilting?

I really pay attention to these answers, because I always want to know what students really want to learn.  Here’s what they said:

  • principles of design/design skills
  • painting on fabric
  • felting
  • understanding tension on their machine
  • gaining confidence/having fun
  • coloring and dyeing fabric
  • learning new techniques
  • improving FMQ
  • making their own work
  • translating ideas to material
  • creating depth with fiber art
  • working abstractly
  • learning new edge finishes
  • playing & experimenting vs. perfection & finishing everything

Do any of these resonate with you?  I would love to hear anything else you would like to learn or that you struggle with, so please let me know.  These kinds of comments help me plan new classes in the future!  After all, I want to teach what you want to learn, right??

  1. Would like to learn how to get that blue ribbon look on all my quilts. Mine don’t seem put together enough.
