Excellent beginner course

This class was an excellent beginner's class. I think it is a good brush-up video as well. I learned a great deal that helped me make my first couple of quilts.

Great basic quilt making class

Excellent Instructor

Gail is by far the best online instructor I've watched. She is patient, knowledgeable and motivational. Her voice and diction is excellent. I am definitely going to seek out any other classes she presents. Thank you Gail and Craftsy.
