Over the past few weeks I have taken quite a few classes on Craftsy. I am bit addicted I must admit. The internet is so awesome. My favorite class so far is Leah Day's Free Motion Sampler class. Although I did not make the 2012 Sampler quilt that she is showing us how to work on, the information I am learning is great and easy to apply to the 3X6 sampler quilt. My friends over on Flickr sent me these blocks as part of the 3X6 block exchange, and I am finally quilting them up. I can not wait to have my first picnic on it. I am also using the knowledge I am adquiring to design how I am going to FMQ my blocks for the We Can Do It Sampler Quilt. I have not yet basted the blocks for that project, but plan to as soon as this one comes together.
Over Spring Break, I started to take the class. I went through and watched the videos. I have been reading 365 Days of Free Motion Quilting Blog and practicing Free Motion Quilting for several years, so the information on the craftsy class for the most part is what I have already learned from Leah on her blogs. The great part is that it is all in one place. I have learned a lot I have not learned from her blog. I am sure that it is on there somewhere, but I have missed it. So really I took the class for the convience. I also believe in supporting someone who helps you to create. So go check it out if you need to improve your FMQ skills. I sound like a commercial... sorry.
Here is my progress so far.
