Did you participate in the quilt block of the month course with Craftsy during 2012? I was new to sewing and you all know I LOVE Craftsy, so I did join up and watch several of the videos to learn more about quilting. At the time I decided quilting wasn’t for me just yet – it seems to require a degree of accuracy in measuring, cutting and sewing that as a complete beginner I wasn’t yet achieving But as soon as the 2013 course came out, I signed up again. A quilt is something I will certainly try this year.
The Quilt Block of the Month course is running for FREE again in 2013. I could tell you all about it, but it’s easier to let the course speak for itself:
“The Craftsy Block of the Month is back and better than ever in 2013! Sew along with quilting legend Laura Nownes as she teaches you how to make 10 blocks of various sizes, including LeMoyne Star, Tumbling Blocks, Strippy Spools and Offset Log Cabins. You’ll learn techniques such as 45-degree and 60-degree triangles, partial seams, Y-seam construction and curved piecing. In the fall, you’ll learn two fun filler blocks, then assemble the quilt and finish with Laura’s easy mitered binding.
Enroll FREE any time during the year and get instant access to all the lessons you’ve missed. As with all Craftsy courses, you can take the class at your own pace, and you get a great online community to share ideas with.”
I love that Craftsy offer so much for FREE. You can sign up at any time and get access to the lessons when you are ready, and make a new block each month, or save it for a project later in the year.
But what about the giveaway I hear you ask? I’m delighted to say that Craftsy have given me the opportunity to offer the complete project pack for the course as a prize to one of the lucky participants who sign up using the special link. $100 of Robert Kaufman quilting fabrics, including 33 great fabrics from Robert Kaufman’s Spot On, Metro Living, Remix, Primatex Basics, and Kona cotton collections in a fantastic range of colors.
