In Craftsy's second annual Block of the Month for 2013, sew along with quilting legend Laura Nownes as she teaches you how to make 10 blocks of various sizes, including LeMoyne Star, Tumbling Blocks, Strippy Spools and Offset Log Cabins. You'll learn techniques such as 45-degree and 60-degree triangles, partial seams, Y-seam construction and curved piecing. Select the specially priced Craftsy fabric kit, featuring Robert Kaufman's colorful Spot On, Metro Living and Remix fabrics, or choose favorite fabrics from your stash. 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. Enroll FREE any time during the year and get instant access to all the lessons you've missed.
