Review of a Free Online Quilting Class
This review is of the new 2016 Craftsy's Block of the Month Class.
Get ready for some wonderful information broken down into monthly classes, for FREE!
Here are the highlights that we took away from this lesson.
We learn about how to do chain stitch for matching pieces. The class demonstration is perfect for learning this easy, simple, and time saving technique.
Then we move onto what most skilled and experienced quilters call common sense methods of the craft. Beginners haven’t had the chance to have these words of wisdom repeat in the inner mind yet. That’s why these tips are wonderful to have repeated, even if it’s just for review.
You may ask yourself, what the difference between ironing and pressing is.
The instructor give a simple description what the difference is while showing us what it looks like.
Then we learn the proper technique for perfect piecing with a rotary cutter. These are very handy tips. Remember that there are no shortcuts.
Lastly, for this lesson, it is explained why you want pressed seems going in opposite directions. This is a tip that is one to remember!
This lesson is nice and short, but drives home a big helpful tip.
We learn the important technique for sewing seams for flying geese pieces. Then we learn how to double check them so that they come out perfect every time!
Every quilter should find that invaluable!
We'll be giving reviews of this class throughout the year and other quilting classes too!
Be on the lookout for next month's issue for updates.
Wrap UpWe hoped you enjoyed this month’s issue of our quilting newsletter.
