Process not product!

I was not sure I liked Joe's classroom style the first time I watched the class. But when I have gone back to it having watched many of the Craftsy piecing classes, I enjoy it more and more each time. It stimulates me to rethink some "static" quilts I have planned. While I may not be as fully improvisational as Joe, I am moving to add a few surprises in the baby quilts I am working on.

Exciting, Entertaining and Fun!

I just finished watching all of the lessons. Joe has a fabulous approach to quilting. You can do no wrong and you won't be doing the same thing again and again while following his processes. If you're looking to be a quilter with unique, modern and abstract quilts, this is the class for you.

Quite a surprise

After taking other classes this one was a surprise. Joe's casualness was refreshing. It was a bit liberating to make it MY quilt and has given me the ability to say, whatever, it's my quilt.

I loved this amazing and very inspiring class

Joe is playing with fabrics, making strips, cutting, sewing, cutting again, the results are amazing, and very inspiring. I am looking forward to play with my fabrics on his way. Thank you very much Joe for this very interesting class, I had a lot of fun and pleasure watching it.
