Quilter's Groove® Design Academy is for you...
  • A passionate quilter that becomes paralyzed when quilting a top with a lot of open space and wants a proven method to get past analysis paralysis!
  • An experienced quilter that is looking for a different way of designing so all your tops take on a fresh new look.

By the end of this course you will be able to…….
  • Confidently design the quilting for you or your customers tops that have a lot of negative space

What others are saying!
Lisa’s first zoom training was even better than I imagined it would be. And I was very eager for the class. Even with occasional techno hiccups, I got a lot of personal attention with my design, and it seemed like everyone else did too. We got so much accomplished, and still it went by so fast, I was sad when it was over.

Lisa provided direct instruction with this online class. I was able to benefit from her expertise and implement her techniques in my quilt. She also gives her students the freedom to create their own individual designs. Lisa afforded me the opportunity to challenge myself and finally work up the courage to complete an intense design. Thank you so much and I look forward to accessing her expertise in the future.


Besides design, Lisa covers....quilting with rulers...quilting whole cloth quilts,....quilting mid-custom quilts...and quilting beautiful feathers(her specialty)! You will get individual attention from Lisa and she will answer all your questions! I cannot recommend this class enough. It will make you a better designer and a better quilter!

Overcome overwhelm and finally learn a proven method you can confidently use each and every time!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a beginner quilter, is this program for me?
While you would get a lot of great information and have lifetime access to this course, it was created for the confident beginner. We describe the confident beginner as someone who can successfully draw and/or quilt design motifs such as feathers, flowers, ferns etc...
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
I have been quilting for many years, will I still get something from this program?
If you struggle with what to quilt on those tops that have open space or are looking for a different way of designing then, yes! You will benefit from this course.
When I join Quilter's Groove Design Academy, will I have access to all of the lessons immediately?
The lessons are sent out weekly, so you will have access to a new lesson each week.
I am a domestic machine quilter, is this program for me?
Yes! This program teaches you how to design the quilting for your top, not the actual process of quilting.

Quilter's Groove Design Academy offers you a 14 day risk free shot!

Are you stuck when it comes to those quilts with wide open spaces? And the stand and stare method isn’t cutting it, are you looking for an easier way to design the quilting for that show stopping quilt, or you are given the same quilt time and time again, and want to quilt them differently?

I personally am so excited to spend the next 10 weeks guiding you on your quilting journey!

I know first hand what it’s like to be paralyzed by a quilt top that has a lot of open space. It took me a while before I realized that standing and staring at the top was not an efficient way to accomplish what needed to be done! Which is figure out what i should quilt on the top. Plus I was doing this as a business and if I wasn’t quilting… I wasn’t making money. I needed a more effective way to figure this out.

If you are a quilter that is looking for a better way of designing, you owe it to yourself to take the risk free plunge and see what Quilter's Groove Design Academy can do for your quilting!

Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that the next 12 weeks will have you looking at all quilts in a completely different way!
