Win a Craftsy Class: Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot

For this week’s giveaway, you get a chance to win one of my favorite Craftsy Classes: Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot by Jacquie Gering.

20140530_creative_quiltingI love to encourage others to quilt their own quilts and so does Jacquie! Along with an excellent introduction and overview of the basics, in Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot, Jacquie provides step by step instructions on working with decorative stitches, radiating designs, quilting with curves, turning designs and quilting with text. She also demonstrates her signature matchstick quilting which looks amazing on modern quilts!

Winning this class will be a perfect complement to those of you doing my Abacus quilt along (although the giveaway is open to everyone). I used walking foot techniques to quilt a series of gently wavy lines that add such rich texture and are extremely easy to do!

It’s so fun to explore all the possibilities with straight, or gently curving lines. Whenever I teach machine quilting to a group of students, I always start them off with walking foot techniques so they can get comfortable and achieve success right from the beginning. It helps build up their confidence for more finicky techniques down the road.

One of the things I love best about Jacquie’s class is that you have her right in front of you, sort of like a personal tutor. You can ask her questions via the Craftsy interactive platform and she’s really good about responding quickly. You can also pause or rewatch sections of the class over and over as many times as you like. That is the beauty of online learning!!

    I took the class a couple of weeks ago, and it was fantastic. I had a quilt top that I was really struggling with how to quilt. I found my answer in this class. It’s a take off of her matchstick design, so still working it, but love how it’s coming together.

    Thanks for a chance to win—it’s one of the classes on my wish list. I’m fairly comfortable with my walking foot, but I’ve found there’s always something to learn about everything, and ways to apply techniques to your style and repertoire of tricks and talents!

    I also took this class and LOVED it. Worth every penny. People who enter-good luck. And if you don’t win, do consider taking this class. It will give you confidence for quilting using your walking foot.

    I loved this class. Just rewatched a segment for a technique to use on a baby quilt I’ve been working on. The winner will be a very lucky person!
