Even after all this time...

I enrolled in this class when it first came out and wrote a favorable review then. This is an update.

This is one of the best classes I have ever had (in some 25 years of classes). Kaye has a talent for explaining things in a way that you never forget...to this day I hear her words "THE GOOSE GOES ON THE BOTTOM" - a mantra that has consistently given me perfect Flying Geese.

Fun Learning Experience

Kaye England was a joy to watch. She provided a history lesson for each block as well as detailed instructions. I learned not to be quite as obsessive about ironing and a new way of making 1/2 and 1/4 square triangles. This was my first time creating filler pieces and having to figure how to put all the pieces/sections together. The last block was especially challenging and recommend the blocks be completed in order. I would enjoy taking another class from her and certainly recommend this one.

Great Teacher!

I just love this class from Kaye England. She is a fantastic instructor. Her instruction is very clear and she gives the best tips for making quilt block accuracy attainable.

made me better

This class made me a better quilter. Always avoiding piecing and looking for easy way out by doing allot of Paper piecing. But not only did I succeed in perfect piecing with Mary's instructions but I fell in love with doing Civil War quilts and traditional quilts...
This was a true learning experience and a great class.
