Default Craftsy Classes

Has anyone taken any classes from Craftsy or any other online site on free motion quilting, especially feathers? Thanks.

I took Angela Walters' Free Motion Quilting with Feathers, excellent class.

I've signed up for several classes but haven't gotten very far yet - just got my printer hooked up so now I can try Leah Days classes), block of the month classes for 2012 and 2013, and a few more. I do want to try the feather classes but figure I need to know a bit (lot) more of the basics first. Will be interested to hear if anyone has taken the class you're interested in.

Same here! I have not gotten too far in the FMQ classes because I'd rather quilt than practice. The classes are great and if I'd complete them, I'd be good at FMQ. For instance, early in Leah Day's first class, she taught how to do stitch in the ditch with FMQ. I really practiced that and now I seldom use my walking foot to SITD. I am really good at using FMQ to SITD. Now if I could just learn to stipple.

I signed up for many, many classes and so far there is only one that was blah, but I got it for free so I am not bitching. I loved Easy strip paper piecing, Ruler work for long arm quilting, Angela Walters quilting class, Weeks Ringle modern quilts class, Elisabeth Hartman's class, and the list goes on... You will love it. That being said, what helped me learn the feathers was drawing them ad nauseoum, and two very good books. One is by Sally Terry called Hooked on Feathers for no backtracking technique and more free style feathers. The other one is The Art of Feather Quilting by Judy Allen and has more traditional elegant feathers. Good luck!

I took Ann Petersen's Beyond Machine Quilting. She does a nice job of teaching feathers and other FMQ designs. What I really liked about it is that you end up with a wall hanging.
