A peek at my class! And a chance to take it free!

First I want to say, your responses to my last post really helped me. Thank you for all the wise words you shared in your comments and emails. I made a little document with my favorite line from each of your messages and it's the best pick-me-up.

NOW, as promised I'm back here lickety split because I get to show you little peeks into my upcoming class with Craftsy!


This is the best picture I have of what the Craftsy quilting studio looks like. There are so many lights. Three cameras. It feels very weird to be the person they are all pointing at. I'm perching on this chair that just barely allows my legs to slide under the table. I'm wearing socks (I prefer to sew with now shoes!). My producer was huddled in the corner behind so many monitors I couldn't even see her. It's so so different from doing an in-person class. It always makes me a little nervous and I stitch too fast. But I've done this two times before and I know that the classes come out fine even though there's things I wish I had done better. So here's what we worked on:




That's right, it's all Wild Quilting! I hope that looks fun and inspiring to you all! Because it is fun and inspiring to do, and you don't have to be great at FMQ to make beautiful designs. I'm not allowed to say exactly when the class goes live but trust me it's SOON. There's just barely time to do a giveaway!

Crafty likes to run their giveaways over on their site so if you want to enter click here:

I'll come back when the class goes live to give you more details. I can't wait to see what you glorious creative souls do with it.

Just wanted to say I love your book Step by Step FMQ, and it is one of my favorites. Also one of the most extensive out there. :)

Quilting is control and sanity that the medical field or life, in general, cannot offer. Keep on keeping on. Hugs.

Karin said...

Oh, I am looking forward to this...struggle with letting go off the orderly structured approach, so this might be just what I need

Ray and Jeanne said...

Ohhh, looks like fun! ~Jeanne

Vicki in MN said...

Sewgirl said...

Bianca said...

I can't wait! It's so beautiful!

FVITH said...

Beautiful designs. They look gorgeous on the solid colours.

Мне нравится, все, что вы делаете. Я иногда трудно перестраиваюсь на другой рисунок и мне их трудно сочетать, а у вас так все пластично и гармонично!

Christine Barnsley said...

I can't wait Christina! I have your first two classes and I love them.... I need to practice more.... but for that I need more time... one day!! I really would love to be able to quilt like you do!! Christine x

Leanne Parsons said...

I love Craftsy classes and am in a bloghop reviewing some of Craftsy's great classes.

Wendy said...

how exciting! I hope you had fun filming it

Elsa said...

So exciting ~ I know a quiltlebrity! And that quilting looks so fab!
Glad you're feeling a bit better ~ I think of you often.

Gene Black said...

Oh yes! I love the photos of your quilting. I hope I win!

Carmen Carter said...

I was hoping that you would teach a class like this when I saw your previous posting on the class you taught. I'm looking forward to taking it. Thanks for offering it and helping us to become more accomplished machine quilters.

Ophelia said...

I adore your craftsy classes; I was just telling someone about it today! I will certainly be taking this one, if I don't win it first! Thanks so much for your great teaching and your terrific quilting style!

Helen in the UK said...

The photos have me interested, looks like a lot of fun. Can't wait to see/hear more about it. Huge congrats on this being your THIRD class :)

Ruth said...

I would love to win the class! BTW, I quilted a donation quilt with the squiggly lines that I saw on your baby quilt and it turned out great! Here is the link: http://countrylogcabin.blogspot.com/2016/02/new-bom-finish-and-design-wall.html Thanks so much for your inspiration!

Jasmine said...

I love the peek at your new class. It looks like it would be so much fun and helpful.

Lara B. said...

Those samples are so exciting to see Christina! Your wild quilting is my favorite and I am just waiting to sign up to take your class!
Wow Christina! You've done three classes at Craftsy now, so that makes you a pro, LOL. It doesn't sound or look easy and I'd be nervous as heck with even one camera pointed at me. You would never know it though from seeing you teach. I hope this class takes right off just like your first two did!

Alice Corbett said...

Glad you are back. I have both of your other classes and both books. Love them. Also love your free spirit and style of teaching. Soothing and very calming to sit and sew with you. Hardly wait until your 3rd class if available.

Ophelia said...

Of COURSE I'm in! I just purchased this class as if it was a limited edition on flash sale! Christina, I love your quilting style above all others, and am going to be inspired as always by your FMQ design style. Thank you!!!!

ParadiseBreeze Quilts said...

Oh I'm definitely doing this one!! Thanks! xx

Christina, do you teach anywhere in the Portland area. I am struggling to learn free motion quilting. I have taken a couple of Craftsy classes and feel I could benefit from some hands on instruction.

Christina said...

I do teach in town! Check Modern Domestic, I will be back there in January and would love to see you in class!
