"This class was great. Angela encourages you to try out quilting designs using a pen and paper before trying (them) on your quilt. She shows you how to combine patterns to make new ones and is very encouraging about practicing and not trying to be perfect. She has a very easy-going attitude that I found easy to listen to. She is an excellent teacher and I would love to take another class from her."
