Quilting with Rulers - Class Review and Discount Code

Greetings Fellow Quilters & Welcome!

Continuing with my Quilting Classes -- Class Review Series
I recently finished this Online Class
"Quilting with Rulers & Templates on a Home Machine"
by Amy Johnson
You may know Amy from her blog - Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures

Amy shares a wealth of information on her blog so if you're looking to expand your understanding of Free Motion Quilting you may want to add Amy's blog to your stop.

Now Let's Talk Class Review!!

Some History:

Ya'll know I've been working with acrylic templates on my home machine for a year or so...

I fell in love with
"The QP Curved Templates"
designed by Linda Hrcka of
The Quilted Pineapple
when she blogged about them early in 2015.
Linda is an award winning, professional long arm quilter and I wear a "I wanna quilt like Linda" sign on my forehead every day!!

I jumped right into using
The QP Curve templates
on my home machine,
finished "Chevron with a Twist" for
the Moda Bake Shop with them,
continue to use and enjoy them every day.

I even published a few very beginner YouTube videos highlighting how to use them:

Using rulers and templates on a domestic machine is a natural progression once you've leaped into Free Motion Quilting at home.

Straight and curved templates open a WORLD of options for FMQ designs on your quilts.
Home Machine Quilted: Simply Spring Fleur - Redbird Quilt Co 2016
With this in mind, the quilting world is crazy about Acrylic Rulers and Templates and anxious to learn how to use them.

Amy's Class is a perfect way to go from basics to borders with Acrylic Rulers and Templates.

Although Amy's class is demonstrated on a home machine, many of the tips and designs she shares in the class apply to sit down and long arm machines as well.

Let's review the content...
This is a great line-up of Lessons....

It's everything you need to get started
and then some!

I especially LOVE that Amy talks "process".
In my opinion,
no class is complete without it.
In the very first lesson she covers the following Key Elements:
Details... details...details -- I love them!

Amy starts with Ruler Foot options,
jumps into how to position
your hands and templates
shares details on a variety
of templates and rulers.
