November's on-demand class review - part 1
This November we decided to take a closer look at some of our on-demand classes. These classes have continuous access with message boards where you can ask questions if you need, however I find that the classes are so well written, often there are no questions to be asked.
The first four classes I have chosen currently have 30% discount and they are:
What's in your Attic Window? Is it a country or woodland scene? Wild animals or fish in a pond? A bright children's print? Well, it can be any of those! Theme prints are perfect for windowing. Daphne will show you how to explore a variety of window options to suit your window fabric or to design your own one-of-a-kind quilt.
You will learn to select the supporting fabrics and sew traditional mitered windows with Daphne's fool-proof technique. This is both a design and sewing class and is suitable for confident beginners with rotary cutting and basic quilt making skills.
Nancy will open up a new world of possibilities for you in this class which is devoted to appliqué. She shares hints about fabric selection, fabric placement and her stress-free techniques for needleturn appliqué so you will be able to make whatever your heart desires. The project will include two blocks: a wreath with berries and a bird, and a papercut design.

The project will include two blocks each 12" square: a wreath with berries and a bird, and a papercut design. You can complete these as first blocks in a Baltimore Album quilt or make a table runner, pillows or a 4-block wall hanging. You will also learn a little about the history of nineteenth-century quilts. All levels.
Join Jennifer and others from around the world for this four lesson online class. Rectangles & Squares are designed as a beginner quilt class but it is available to any level of quilter to take. This class will cover many basics of quilting along with color, fabric selection, precise cutting and piecing and include a couple of design options available to choose from.
In the first lesson, you will pick your fabrics and learn how to precisely cut the pieces required to make the blocks. The second lesson will cover everything you need to know about building the blocks to make the center of the quilt. Lesson three will be all about turning those blocks into rows and sewing them together on-point. As well, detailed directions will be provided for making the setting triangles. Finally, in lesson four you will pick the border option you want and add it the quilt. So come along and have some fun and see just how many options this one block has to offer.
