    I love the Craftsy classes, too, and they are on sale right now so I'll probably sign up for another one. I love the idea that you can work on them when you have time ( or steal time, sometimes). All of the classes that I have taken have been good and it is wonderful to go back and review techniques when you need to.

    You are doing a great job on the free motion. Keep up the good work!

    I am taking all of the quilting classes. Haven't tried anything yet but love the information I get from each class.

    I've taken several of their classes and found them to be very informative. The format makes it very easy to see what the instructor is doing and you are able to replay each session, as needed.

    Boy! you are doing good. I bought that class, but haven't tried it yet. They do have the quilting classes for only $19.99 now. Actually I only enroll when they are at that price, so far I have signed up for 12 classes - the same price I paid for only 2 classes at a quilt shop, but now I can review them as often as I want -- forever. Good deal for me since my SUV is a gas hog.

    I believe that class is "Beyond Basic Quilting" by Ann Peterson.

    Thanks for the kind words - I'm enjoying the class, and don't look at it as difficult at all, the instructor talks through and shows everything so well that I would think most folks that try would be successful at it. I took the samples I've done so far to work to show some gals that also thought it must be hard, but just said where there's a will there's a way, we all learned to walk right? The part I didn't "enjoy" was getting the quilt sandwichs ready for practice and the final project, I just wanted to dive right in, we all know that doesn't work. I have now decided I'm going to keep a bunch of quilt sandwiches ready to go for future practice projects. When done, they are all going together into a "quilt as you go" type project.

    YES! when you consider the gas on top of class prices the Craftsy courses are great deals. Gas is just the tip of the iceburg - as soon as I hit the quilt shop I spend more money, and may even NEED to take a side trip to JoAnns or Hancock's...
    I believe that class is "Beoyond Basic Quilting" by Ann Peterson.

    I think I will have to try it...thank you, keep up the good work
    Yes, this was on my domestic - Viking

    You take the class right on the computer - the instructor tells you about herself and the course, tells you to find the few pages of information to print out for reference. She walks you through how to "draw" the designs so you will be comfortable with it when you get to making it on a practice sandwich before you do it on your finished piece of art...slowly working through the variety of feathers, circles, everything you need to get a nice size sampler of your work completd -

    Yes, I signed up for it. But I need something loaded on my laptop so that I can take it. You are so ahead of me. But....

    That's great - good progress. I signed up for Craftsy's machine quilting class back in March but have yet to actually open it up to take the class. Maybe I should check it out soon. After seeing your work, it gives hope to me too but I forgot if it's for free motion quilting. Thanks for sharing.

I'm only part way through, but think it will be well worth the $ all things considered! Here's a bit of practice - Anyone else taking these classes?
    That is great - you did a great job. Do you think this class would work for long arm machines?

    it looks wonderful. I love freemotion quilting. But I signed up for the painting one even though I have been enhancing my landscapes and other quilts with paint for years. I thought there will be one tip that would just be what I need to hear to improve my painting. It is so cool how you set your piece in the frame for the quilt.
