The Q - Quilt University!

Of course the most obvious theme would have been "quilts" or "quilter" - hey, don't you think that would have been too easy? But do you know about "Quilt University"? It's a wonderful place on the internet where you can learn online a lot about all different aspects of quilting. And they even offer a beginners class! During the last years I took several classes there - and I loved them all. Two quilts I made based on Quilt-University-classes I have already shown during the A-Z Challenge: "My draft of space" and "Walter's Quilt".
That's the reason why you see today a picture of our two cats, cuddled in between quilts ;-))
As you may imagine, there are a lot of blogs with "Q" ... here's a short list:
- Bonnie Hunter's blog Quiltville
- Quilt it by Marit (you just have to love her header !!)
- Art and Quilting in Camden
- Quilty Goodness with the Ottos
- Quilters Cottage Norfolk
- QuiltRoutes
- Eclectic Quilter
Logischerweise wären die offenkundigen Themen für das "Q" natürlich "Quilten" oder aber "Quilter" gewesen - zu einfach, oder? Wie wäre es denn mit der "Quilt University"? Eine wunderbare Website, mit deren Hilfe man eine Menge über die verschiedenstenen Aspekte der Quilterei lernen kann. Es gibt sogar einen Anfängerkurs ;-)) In den letzten Jahren habe ich verschiedene Kurse dort belegt - und sie alle toll gefunden. Während des A-Z Challenges habe ich schon zwei Quilts gezeigt, die auf Kursen der Quilt University beruhen: "My draft of space" und "Walters Quilt". Das ist der Grund, warum's heute ein Bild von Gina und Basti gibt, eingekuschelt zwischen Quilts ;-))
Wie ihr euch sicher vorstellen könnt, gibt es unendlich viele Blogs mit "Q" ... hier ist eine kurze Liste:
- Bonnie Hunter's Blog Quiltville
- Marit's Blog Quilt it (alleine schon der Header ihres Blogs ist einfach nur schön ...)
- Art and Quilting in Camden
- Quilty Goodness with the Ottos
- Quilters Cottage Norfolk
- QuiltRoutes
- Eclectic Quilter

Thanks for the mention!
Beautiful cats. My Mum used to have one just like them. He was called Jake, after Jake and Ellwood from the Blues Brothers movie. She also had a tabby called Ellie to stick with the theme.
