Freedom To Explore

I love how Wendy takes you on a journey with her. This class challenged me to explore the possibilities of exploring other dimensions of quilting.

Artistic Design And Expression

This is a very subjective art, which the instructor endorses. The instructor is very clear and uses many examples to demonstrate different techniques. Very informative!

Love Wendy's Thorough Approach

I have wondered for so long about the details of the process of art quilting since I have never quilted in any way before. This class truly removes the mystery behind art quilting and helps me to see how simple it really is to create a beautiful piece. Also, the aspect of playing while we create is my type of work. I am right brained and this feeds my creative bent. Thanks Wendy, for such a great class.

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.
