Craftsy Block of the Month 2013

with Laura Nownes
Craftsy Block of the Month 2013
Learn new quilting techniques, make new friends and create a sampler quilt! Laura Nownes demonstrates 10 fabulous blocks and numerous techniques in this FREE class.

In Craftsy's second annual Block of the Month, sew along with quilting legend Laura Nownes as she teaches you 10 blocks of various sizes, including LeMoyne star, tumbling blocks, strippy spools and offset log cabins. You'll learn 45- and 60-degree triangles, partial seams, Y-seams and curved piecing. Add two fun filler blocks, then assemble the 60" x 63" (152 x 160 cm) quilt and finish with Laura's easy mitered binding. It's a great class for experienced quilters, but jump right in if you have basic sewing skills!

Craftsy users love the Block of the Month so much it's become an annual tradition! Sign up for the 2014 Block of the Month, Craftsy Color Theory with Janine Burke and Amy Walsh.

"I am absolutely enjoying the 2013 BOM! Laura doesn't leave anything out! Her presentation is precise, clear and very helpful in presenting what to do and what not to. Most enjoyable though is her relaxed easy-going style!! Love her choice of fabric for a fresh modern looking quilt!!"
