Free Online Class For Quilters (Or Those Who Want To Be)

Posted on Jan 19 2012 - 8:55am by Heather Brummett

The Craftsy Block of the Month is a completely free, year-long online class instructed by expert quilter, Amy Gibson.


Learn fun quilting techniques and create a one-of-a-kind quilt with the FREE Craftsy Block of the Month! Each month, Amy Gibson will guide you through a specific quilting technique – half- and quarter-square triangles, appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more. Then she’ll teach you two nifty 12-inch blocks using what you’ve learned.You’ll make 20 blocks from fat quarters, then assemble them into a throw-sized quilt. At the end of the class students will have a one-of-a-kind quilt.

Like all classes, students can view it whenever it’s convenient for them, and can watch them however many times they’d like. It’s filmed in high-definition, and it’s fully interactive—students can ask Amy questions as they go.

There are little previews here to see if it is something you would enjoy. They have many courses you can pay for but… this one is FREE!

I have ALWAYS wanted to learn so I just signed up! Let me know if you are joining me!
