    I'm taking Free Motion Quilting but that's the only one I've done with them so I guess it's my favorite!

    I loved Quick Strip Paper Piecing with Peggy Martin although I liked all that I enrolled for.

    I am doing the free BOM and also have subscribed to Quilting Quickly I & II with Jenny Doan. They are very informative and good for beginners.

    I signed up for the FMQing too, my first. I haven't started the course yet, maybe tonight. Lots of good choices for quilters. Pepper Cory's scrap class is fun , she taught it at my guild a few years ago.

    I have signed up for quite a few of the classes. It is difficult to list a favorite. I especially enjoyed my first two classes, Quilting I and Quilting II. I think I liked them so much as I had just started quilting and I loved Jenny Doan and the easy patterns she used. I have made several quilts from her lessons. I also enjoy the free Block of the Month. I don't especially like the blocks we make; but I am excited about how much I have learned by making the blocks. At the end of the month, I keep checking so that I can get started on the next month's block as soon as it is posted. I am a real fan of the Crafty classes!

    I am doing the Craftsy free BOM. This month's hexs are challenging as I made my own templates. I am doing a Dresden Plate using the pre cut pieces from Paper Piecing company and I am sold on their products. I didn't want to buy them for this project. I made two entirely different patterns using the hexs this month. I have the machine quilting and Jenny's two classes. Classes are a bit pricey at the LQS. The craftsy classes are reasonable if you catch them on sale and easy to follow. I like them.

    I really couldn't say which one of my classes with Craftsy is my favorite. All of them are great and I enjoy them all. I just love watching the videos - wonder how many times they have to do do-overs before they get things to look so easy!! Is that how they get things to look so easy - maybe it's because the teachers are all so super talented.

    I LOVED the Pictorial Quilting Class, but Stupendous Stitching has been my favorite so far. I signed up for Stitch and Slash, and got the Sewing with Texture free by demoing a Bernina machine recently.

    I've also done Jeanius and the Jacket class, but I find the garment classes to not be as good as the quilting classes, maybe because they are harder... The jacket pattern doesn't fit me well, but the class doesn't cover alterations

    I bought both the "Quilting large quilts on a small machine" and "Beyond basic machine quilting". Both were taught by Ann Peterson and both were excellent. I couldn't pick a favorite, I learned SOOOO much from both. But the BEST thing about Craftsy classes is that once you buy the class, it's yours FOREVER. You can make notes, ask questions, post pictures and interact with others taking the class, and go back to the class anytime you want to. I'll definitely buy more Craftsy classes in the future.
