I'm Sheila Christensen - a passionate Quilter, Teacher, Author and Quilt Designer.
I have been teaching patchwork and quilting since 2011, and have helped hundreds of people into this amazing hobby
The Dolly Mixtures Quilt was inspired by childhood memories - and each block has a story. Throughout the class, as you download the pattern for each block, you will find out about my story for the blocks. You can share your own memories with me and your fellow students in our exclusive Facebook page.
It's a great way to learn in today's full-on world, do keep on reading and I hope you will join me on this nostalgic journey,
"Hi Shelia, oh my goodness I can’t believe that I actually succeeded in making this gorgeous quilt!!! I have learnt sooo much and I would really like to thank you very much for the wonderful clear instructions and videos. Not ever having done a course on line before I found that the course was easy to access and I loved been able to go back over the stages again when needed.so thank you again. I’ll have to get some advice from you on the backing fabric and how to quilt it.
Kind regards Karan"
"Those blocks look really complicated!"
Everything you have learned so far in your quilting journey - and even in life - looked complicated once, but when you learn step by step and build your skills, you can achieve amazing things!
The wonderful thing about these online classes is that you can watch them over and over again if you need to.
Imagine asking the tutor in class to repeat something over again - you might feel embarrassed, right? Well with videos there is no problem at all, and if the video isn't quite clear, you have access to messaging so you can ask me a question any time - and I don't mind if you need to ask more than once.
Enjoy the process!
I will help you one step at a time in my comprehensive course that covers everything you need to know to make these blocks and then assemble them into the finished quilt.
Every block is explained in detail, and nothing is assumed. You don't need to have previous experience doing appliqué, foundation piecing or any of the many techniques covered. You will also pick up some great tips and techniques that will help you with there projects in the future.
I have been teaching since buying my shop in 2011, and over the years I have helped hundreds of people just like you make beautiful quilts.
Dolly Mixtures is so much fun to share with other quilters. We have a Facebook group where we share our favourite memories that each block brings. It's exciting to travel down memory lane. We share old photos and reminisce about things we enjoyed as children.
I know how hard it is to make room for this passion in your life - to get out to a class with all of your equipment and to find time to complete 'homework' in between, especially if you have questions or problems between classes.
To help you develop your quilting expertise in today's busy world, I have developed this course so you can access it however it suits YOU and fits into YOUR life. With online access to the lessons at any time, and downloadable pdf files for every step, I know you will be able to achieve success.

"It just looks great! I will put this quilt together in the following weeks without any pressure. Thank you so so much, Sheila for this wonderful work of yours (and ours ...), I am looking forward to a new project with you. I learned a lot from this project!"
"Her videos are amazingly clear, concise and helpful when I need them. Her written material and the step-by-step guides to each of the individual pieces is meticulous, and I never had to second-guess what she presented. I totally recommend her classes, the great variation of products that she presents, and simply love her enthusiasm."
