Wild Quilting is here!

Hello everyone! I landed late last night from QuiltCon and today I get to jump right into announcing my new class from Craftsy, Wild Quilting. Such an exciting quilting life!


First things first, I know some of you have been really excited for this one, so I have a link for my followers: click here to take the class for $20 off! Here is an updated link to take the class for 33% off!

I have to tell you, this is absolutely my favorite class I've done with Craftsy. It was my favorite class I taught at QuiltCon too. Maybe that's because I love wild, organic, unpredictable quilting so much. Or maybe because I know how many of you are aching to make your quilting more expressive and interesting. Either way, I'm so excited to see what you all do with it! 


If you look at complex quilting and don't know where to start, this is the class for you! As you probably already know I love making complicated things simple and straightforward, and that's exactly what I've done in the seven lessons of Wild Quilting. Let me give you the confidence to start doing more with your quilting.


First I show you individual techniques like the Grouped Combinations above, and then we work on putting them together into bigger compositions like this: 


Even if you don't want to use all the techniques together you can still use the individual techniques in your quilting to make unique, personal finishes for your quilts and projects.

I can't wait to hear what you think of it! Thanks for taking the time to read about it and don't forget to use my link for 33% off!! Happy Wild Quilting everyone!

OK, you got me ... I just signed up for the class! Well, with the introductory offer it almost seemed rude not to. I loved your "Secrets of FMQ" class, so I'm sure I'll love this one too, a chance to relax, have fun and go wild :)

Christine Barnsley said...

I am so excited for you Christina! This class looks fabulous... I am not sure if I am up to 'intermediate' standard yet but, as you keep these classes forever and I want to be 'intermediate' one day, I am going to go and sign up for it anyway! Yay! I have a new machine with a BSR feature, so I will have to give that a try!! Thank you! Christine x

Suzanne said...

Congrats, Christina. It's a whirlwind of wonderful that has you popping up all over sharing your talent.

Gale Bulkley said...

I can't wait to start the lessons tonight!

Gene Black said...

It looks delightful! I have added it to my wishlist so that when I have some extra funds I can take it. I love, love, love, the samples posted for the class...especially the one with the ribbon piecing that is echoed (in a way) by the quilting. The "ladder ribbon" that runs off it and the combination of designs makes me want to do a mostly whole cloth piece.

Julie said...

I can't wait to get home tonight so I can start watching and quilting. Thanks for the great discount! Congrats on all your Craftsy success.

Lorie Bugaiski said...

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

OK - you got me, too! Right now I'm working my way though your first class - "Free-Motion Quilting Essentials" - and I'm LOVING it!! I also have your second class - so when I finish that one - I should be ready to go "Wild" - ;))

Sarah Craig said...

Congratulations, Christina! I've been looking forward to this class - I can't wait to check it out!!

madhappycrafter said...

Woooo Hoooo Christina! The class looks exciting and fun! I... erm... still have not learned how to do FMQ but i want to buy the class anyway! Thank you so much for the discount offer to your followers, too! You look so beautiful in the pics too - this way i get to "visit" with you in your lessons and follow along, even if i never even master mediocrity with FMQ, ha!

Lara B. said...

LOL, I really loved reading through your comments. madhappycrafter made me laugh and identify with her and her "mediocrity with FMQ". Christina you got me even more psyched for your class! It looks and sounds wonderful and those quilting examples are gorgeous!

Gale Bulkley said...

I thoroughly enjoyed this Craftsy class and look forward to practicing your fun techniques in the very near future. Everything you did was explained very clearly, including your motivation. Congratulations for a job well done.

Kati from Kati's Quilting said...

Just signed up with the link, thank you! I can't wait to get started! Your quilting is gorgeous!

I went to your blog the other day to choose a design for my drunkard's path quilt. I chose the topography design. So....yesterday, I went back to your site to show a friend of mine the design and saw that you had a new class! I bought it immediately. I watched the whole thing this morning. I loved it! I liked all of your thorough explanations and demonstrations and that you showed how we could incorporate them on a large quilt. I can't wait to get started on that, after I finish the drunkard's path!

Hi...the class IS amazing...I learned so much. Your smile and ease of teaching makes the class especially enjoyable....and fmq should be fun! Right? Right!!Thanks again for the discounted rate...it was appreciated.

leanne said...

Patsy said...

I started your class this week and it is really great! There is something about the way you teach that is so darn refreshing and I love your FMQing!

Louise said...

I just saw over on Confessions of a Fabric Addict that you have generously provided a prize for the Hands 2 Help charity challenge. Thank you so much for being part of this fantastic challenge!

I live in a place where I have almost no access to guilds, classes, or quilt shops, so I really appreciate the online quilting community. Knowing that there are like-minded folks out there, ready to give something back to the world, makes me so happy.

Thanks again!

Andree G. Faubert said...

Hi Christina, I love your Wild Quilting class on Craftsy. I've watched it twice already and have incorporated some of your ideas into my FMQ. Thanks!

Nancy J said...

You make it look so easy, and what a great way to learn without leaving home, watch and stitch , I can see this would be marvellous for me.

Martina said...

Sounds like a great class and it's on my wishlist. I wonder if you'll be covering how to quilt around appliques - like when I use Lara Buccella's new applique method.

I love your quilts. They are beautiful. I am just getting started on quilting. We are learning as a group at the VA where I volunteer so I am looking for ideas. Thanks you have given me a lot of them.
