Free Quilting Class

Well, yesterday was my last full day at my outside-the-home job. I’ll be finishing up a project for them in the weeks to come, but I won’t be there full time anymore. It was a wonderful day of kind words, hugs, pretty cards, staff lunch & a tear or two. I will miss it there, but I’m so thrilled to be able to be home.

I find myself dreaming about “all the time” I’ll have now, but before you laugh too loud at me, you should know I have at least one foot in reality & I’m sure I’ll meet some more along the way. 😉

One thing I do hope I can find time for again is my sewing. Upon opening my email this morning, I saw this!


Yes – A FREE Block of the month class from Craftsy. Here’s an excerpt from the class description (Click the picture above to read the whole thing):

Learn fun quilting techniques, make new friends and create a one-of-a-kind quilt with the FREE Craftsy Block of the Month! Each month, Amy Gibson will guide you through a specific quilting technique – half- and quarter-square triangles, appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more. Then she’ll teach you two nifty 12-inch blocks using what you’ve learned. Some are brand-new designs, others fresh twists on traditional favorites. Along the way, you’ll make 20 blocks from fat quarters, then assemble them into a throw-sized quilt.

So while this goes against my destash plans, I may sign up just to have it for future reference. I’ve not taken an online Craftsy class before, but from what I’ve seen, the topics are relevant & pertain to all types of sewing/knitting/crocheting/paper crafting so if this one doesn’t float your boat, be sure to check out their other classes (no affiliate credit or any payment to me, just passing on a good thing when I see it!).

I would love to hear from you if you’ve taken a Craftsy class, considered it or never heard of them!

Have a great Super Bowl Weekend!
