"I have thoroughly enjoyed this class. The course is packed full of great tricks and tips I have not come across in other quilting courses. The teaching style is very pleasant and to the point. Lessons include a great variety of stars, from simple to advanced. There is a lot of attention to details, notably a section on why it is important to also look at the wrong side of the block. I am sure that I will return to this class again and again."
