Over the course of six months, we have covered a wide range of subjects in The Art of Quilt Design program. As we come to a close, we hope have you have found these lessons helpful as they pertain to your own work. We would very much like to thank all the artists and especially the TQS family of artists who so generously shared their knowledge and quilt images with us. Without them, this program would not have offered the same depth of understanding or value. We are tremendously grateful.

One is never too old to learn. You have dipped your toe in the water when it comes to understanding design. Think of learning as a journey (hopefully, on the correct side of the road), with continued study always a good idea. Classes, online courses, and books abound to help you continue growing as a quilt artist. Below are a number of resources we believe would be a good place to continue your education:

Thank you so much for all these weeks on info for our art of quilting pleasure. We may all have different styles and approaches but it can all come together. I will certainly have lots to read and will keep it handy for sure.
