I set this site up so that people who wanted to take my internet class, or buy my patterns had a place to go where things were organized.  However, I didn't realize at the time that I would have to continually update this site. 

So, this is my way of satisfying Blogger and hope it works.

Use shades of color to create beautiful realistic applique.
This technique can be used to make landscapes, animals, flowers, or people.
You will use lots of different fabrics which lends itself to using up a lot of scraps.
Simple enough that even a beginner can do the technique, but results lend
themselves to the more advanced quilter.

Sheril started sewing at a very early age, but upon moving to Lexington Ky. she
joined a Newcomers club and from there joined a local quilting group. Sheril was
immediately taken with the process, but soon learned that she did not want to stick
to the traditional patterns. So, she began to experiment and has continued to do so.
Throughout the last 20 years, Sheril has taught numerous classes, quilting demonstrations
and lectures. Her quilts have been shown at all the major shows and many smaller shows.
She is a member of KHQS, IQA, AQS, as well as Quilter's of the Bluegrass having served on
the board in numerous positions.

What I am offering is private workshops over the Internet.
For a class fee of $40.00 with a pattern included for each student, I will instruct you
thru the process from beginning to end. All you need is a digital camera so we can track
your progress.

After registering, I will send you a full size pattern, which normally sells for between $4.50
to $8.00 . When it arrives you simply e-mail me and I will go over the directions with you.
Once you have collected the necessary materials, I will talk you thru the process.
As you proceed, I will have you send me digital pictures, and help you decide if you are getting the right idea. I will continue to work with you until the project is completed, including
the quilting and binding as well as a sleeve on the back and the label if needed. You can
take a week or two, or months if you prefer. Like having a private tutor with you at all times!

If this idea appeals to you, just send me an e-mail at and we can arrange things from there.
