Very helpful class!

I particularly appreciate Wendy's lessons on design. The design principles are clearly demonstrated. Quite often, I stop the lessons and look at the details to firmly anchor those principles in my mind. I particularly like the fact that Wendy does not use an 'example' design for student's to repeat but rather guides us to developing our own designs. That was what I expected from her class. At the end, I had a hard time following the classes because my head was buzzing with project ideas.

Great class

Learned so much. Have watched it 3 times. I enjoy the enthusiasm of Wendi. I have some projects yet to finish then will start an art quilt of my own design instead of patterns. Her talent was under utilized on The Quilt Show.

Informative, though not quite my style

LOTS of really great info (though it is true, Wendy is a bit long-winded)! And while a few people have complained about all the samples of her pieces she showed in the class, I liked seeing all the different quilts. Seeing other people's work gives me new ideas. That said, Wendy's style is not my style - it's a bit too sugary sweet for me. I'd like to see more edgy and modern styling, but I do realize this is a class for beginners. Don't get me wrong, Wendy has some super nice pieces in her ...
