"I found this class to be very well presented, clear and easy to follow, and the resulting project is lovely. Gloria is a supremely gifted artist and teacher. I re-played several lessons while working on the quilt, which helped me solidify my understanding of the techniques used. The classes felt just right for me - very organized and sequenced."
