Free 12 month Quilting classes from Craftsy

Daisy loves all kinds of pillows, blankets and quilts and has pretty much claimed all of ours as her own. So this Free Beginner’s Series from Craftsy caught my eye. I’ve always been intimidated by the thought of learning to quilt but this sounds like just the thing…I can make something for Daisy and maybe reclaim MY favorite blanky from her! I just hope my neighbor will let me use her sewing machine!

The Craftsy Block of the Month is a completely free, year-long online class instructed by expert quilter, Amy Gibson. There are 12 installments, each one posted on the first day of every month. The first 10 months/installments teach students two new exciting blocks in each lesson (brand new designs or funky spins on traditional blocks). The last two months are dedicated to finishing the quilt.

At the end of the class, you will have full-size and one-of-a-kind quilt. Like all of Craftsy’s classes, students can view lessons whenever it’s convenient, and can watch them however many times you’d like. Filmed in high-definition, and fully interactive—you can ask Amy questions as you go. Go here to sign up at Craftsy for Free and to watch the intro video! Even if you aren’t into the idea of quilting, you can also visit the link to view all of Craftsy’s Free knitting, crochet and craft projects!
