My FMQ Essentials class is coming! Want to win it?



You know how sometimes I disappear for a while? Sometimes that's because my refrigerator died and someone hit my car and all my typical work time is going to getting things fixed. But sometimes it's because I'm working on something big and organized and fabulous. Like this! Free-Motion Quilting Essentials is my new class with Craftsy that will be launching soon. I'm so thrilled to have these photos to share with you, and to give you a chance to be one of the first people in the class, free!


My last class with Craftsy was all about quilting designs; understanding, adapting and recreating them. It didn't cover the basics. THIS class is the prequel to that class, so if you're just starting your free-motion adventure you have someone to take you through it one step at a time, as well as specific exercises to try as you get your feel for it.

In the class I take you though all the basic designs and skills.


 We build on what you've learned...


And build some more...


Until you're combining designs like a FMQ Wizard.


So are you excited? I am! I really hope this helps launch some of you hopers in to doers! If you would like a chance to win the class, please enter at Craftsy (it's quick!). I'll share more about the class when it launches.

Oh and I guess it's giveaway time here, the winner of the Magic Carpet Quilt pattern is "Tink's mom" who blogs at Selina Quilts. Congratulations!

I have both your books and loved your first Craftsy class. I love your magic carpet pattern. Very excited about your new class!

Ditto on thanks for the chance! I have one of your books and I'm still doing the "avoidance of the FMQ" thing by drowning myself in other projects. =D I need to just suck it up and try it since you're book is so awesome.

Thank you for the chance to win. I admire your work and loved your first class (but it was to hard for me as a FMQ beginner... so I gave up to try). Best wishes Annett

I'm so glad you're teaching this class. You have already helped me. After a few unsuccessful attempts to learn FMQ, I found a copy of your book First Steps to Free Motion Quilting. It did the trick, and now I am getting somewhere. You have managed to wrangle a huge amount of information into small, manageable and logical sequences. Your class is going to be wonderful!

I am always up for a class. My FMQ can always use improving so I registered.

YES! THIS is the class for me! i should win just on the qualification of being the world's biggest chicken when it comes to FMQ! but if i don't win i will probably buy the class anyway - watch it - and maybe finally try again,

a prequel -- great concept, and just what I need. I loved your first class on craftsy.com and I know I would love this one!

Looks like a great class. I really need to take time and learn free motion quilting. Sorry about the fridge and car. Not fun.
