Quilting on Craftsy: Class Giveaway!
August 22, 2014 By 11 Comments
In my last Craftsy post, I told y'all I was going to start taking some online quilting classes. My first class was a mini-class about quilting and color theory. Now I've moved on to a full length class, called a Garden of Quilted Possibilities. It's a great beginning quilting class that teaches about piecing to make letters, applique, a Dresden quilt block, and more. And today you can enter to win this class--read on! The LOVE table runner: This is an easier project to learn how to quilt with letters. The class materials also include full instructions on how to make a beautiful alphabet quilt. The instructor, Edyta Sitar, shows each step, so even the most unexperienced quilters will succeed in a perfect quilt. This is such a great course to take to learn precision. The Dresden Quilt Block: She uses a premade template to cut the fan blades. And I was riveted watching her do this process. She is so detail oriented and exact, and it pays off. Being precise is probably my biggest weakness in quilting, and I end up with wonky seams. But watching this video has helped me see how important it is to be exact and even to iron in a specific way. I can't wait to try my own Dresden quilt block! And the Dresden Quilt... isn't it amazing? A great aspect of the Craftsy classes is that you can ask a question at any time, it will pop up on the side, and anyone, including the instructor, can answer your question. Such a great place to ask anything--there's no such thing as stupid questions! I can't even tell you how much I learned from this class, and I'm not even done with it. It really gives me confidence that I could learn to be an expert in any of the Craftsy classes they offer. I'm all for teaching myself things, but it can only take you so far sometimes--and you have to learn from people who have been doing it forever to get all the tips and tricks. If you want to try this class, you can enter to win one here! Just visit Craftsy and sign up and then you are entered!
