Quilt along with Amy Gibson and learn 10 different quilting techniques: half- and quarter-square triangles, appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more. Amy makes 20 12" blocks using what you've learned. Some are brand-new designs, others fresh twists on traditional favorites. Craftsy users loved it so much it's become an annual tradition!

"Amy was a great teacher and I learned way more than I imagined I would. This was my first quilt and it turned out beautifully. I feel like I gained years and years of knowledge in just a few easy-to-follow lessons. Thank you for a wonderful course. I would highly recommend this class to anyone."
