"This teacher is extremely detailed in her explanations and demonstrations. I have been trying to figure out a way to make a specific image into a quilt for a while, but because the image was so detailed I was intimidated. She teaches ways to simplify the entire process in a very easy to understand way which gave me the confidence I needed to start on my quilt! I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is interested in pixel quilts."
