Default Crafty quilting class

I have been piecing tops for sometime, but would like to learn machine quilting. Has anyone taken any of on line home machine quilting classes? Craftsy has one now and I would like to hear comments. Are they easy to follow?
Any inf would be appreciated. Thanks, Vivian

You could try Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting a Sampler. I LOVED it. Even if you used muslin quilt sandwiches (if you didn't have a sampler to quilt) you would learn how to free motion quilt. Leah teaches both how to quilt the entire quilt top in your domestic machine and to also quilt as you go, block by block. She also teaches how to put those finished blocks together!

So far, I have taken Angela Walter's first class on quilting negative spaces. It is very good, and I just signed up for her class on doing feathers. Can't wait.

I am taking Leah Days class right now. It is excellent! She takes a beginner FMQer and works with them, explaining why the things we all see are happening and also how to correct them.

She also shows how to "open up" a closed toe foot. Highly recommended and you get the free BOM for the quilt she's working with.

The sampler Leah is working on is the free 2012 BOM. That is a very good class teaching you several techniques.

Angela Walters is a longarm quilter. I've taken her feathers class, and it is great, but it wouldn't be a good starting class for quilting on a DSM.

Thank you all so much. I feel I need to learn on my machine before I try long arm. Will Check out both of those suggested.
