Sassy String-Pieced Blocks...


The March project at Craftsy's free block-of-the-month class are these 12" string-pieced blocks. Very easy, very scrappy, and lots of fun to sew. Instructor Amy Gibson presents the block constuction and step-by-steps on a video each month. She's an enthusiastic instructor and does a great job of demonstrating each step. April blocks will be English paper piecing, so participants get a new technique each month. It's most enjoyable. You might want to check it out... Craftsy adds new classes often. One that I purchased recently is Ann Petersen's "Beyond Basic Machine Quilting." I'm moving along slowly in that class, but it's full of excellent information. I really like the flexibility of online classes, and the ones I've experienced seem to be priced fairly. I WILL get better at machine quilting... my goal for this year.
