Today, I’m doing something I’ve never done before: participating in a blog hop! Organized by Jackie Kunkel of Canton Village Quilt Works (thanks, Jackie!!), ten Craftsy Instructors are sharing info about their respective classes over the course of seven days. Today is day 6, but do not despair! I’ll give you links to all the other Instructors later in this post so that you can check them all out and catch up on the scoop!! And, you’ll get a special link for purchasing any of these great classes at a really great price, giving you the opportunity to win a free class!
First, I’d like to tell you a little about my class. I love to piece quilts! Now, I like the occasional quick project as much as the next quilt-maker. You know, the kind of project where I can see the light glowing brightly at the end of the tunnel before I ever begin. However, my favorite projects to piece are the ones that are a little more complex. Not complicated, mind you. Complex. The projects that require a little focus, a little attention to detail. I find these projects wildly satisfying to create. I’m talking about projects that include seams that some consider “challenging” such as partial seams, set-in seams, and mitered corners. I love using these seams in my projects, and I love teaching others how to use these seams!
and, my personal favorite, set-in seams (“Y-seams”) – all on the sewing machine. People in my workshops tell me often, “If I’d known how easy these seams are to sew, I’d have done them years ago!” And, by learning to sew these seams, you not only add valuable skills to your quilt-making toolbox, but you add LOADS of new blocks and quilt possibilities for your quilt-making pleasure!
Plus, I give you loads of tips on fabric prep, cutting, templates, and more! Using these tips, you’ll be amazed how easy it is to sew these seams successfully!!! Give it a try!!
Here are the links to the other Craftsy Instructors blogs, including the date that they specifically blogged about their Craftsy class.
