    Project from Craftsy Class

    This is part of the project from a Craftsy class called, "Beyond Basic Machine Quilting" by Ann Petersen. I was so eager to start this project (and had no confidence to make a presentable rendition) that I just grabbed the first bit of extra fabric and started right in. I used a thread that blended so i wouldn't be able to see my mistakes as much. As I finished a little of the class and realized i might be able to do some of the quilting, i then started adding other thread colors. This is not the whole project. i didn't do her borders. I do plan to go back and take this course in earnest and do a better job. The quilt is out of kilter as i didn't have time to block is before My granddaughter decided it was going to be a quilt for her favorite stuffed animal du jour.

    I have paid for 3 of these classes, and they dont work on my machine. Oh how I wish they did, I'd be doing this now. It is so neat. You are doing so well for beginner, not sure mine would look like that. Good Luck, keep up the great work, girly!!

    What a fun looking project! And what could be more perfect than having your granddaughter fall in love with it. I can't wait to see more of your work!

    Don't hesitate to contact them, they will help you try different things to make them work. They worked better for me using Google Chrome as the browser. They will also refund you if you aren't satisfied.

    Looks great! I think so many people would really enjoy it, but their biggest hurdle is to just try it!

    It looks like you were having fun. I love the whimsical flowers. It is cool how you made the one with the spiral

    This class, and the instructor, are great. I did not complete the full project. I practiced each new skill on a separate scrap. She gives so many options, you are sure to find one that works for you. Your project looks great.

    You sound like me. I did an entire king sized quilt using matching thread on top! I am so proud of you for branching out into different colors of thread! This is so exciting. Now your options are limitless! Continue the fab quilting and I hope to see more beautiful quilting from you! (BTW I'm from PA too and had to look up your town because I had never heard of it before.)

    I have had the pleasure of taking a couple of classes from Ann at a now closed local quilt store.
    She is a great teacher in class, and an award winning quilter.
    I wish I had taken a couple more of her FMQ classes when they were still open.
    Happy quilting.

    Looks great. I really have enjoyed the Craftsy classes so far.
