Creating classic, traditional-style quilts is a fabulous way to pay homage to generations of quilters, but times change, along with the methods of creating these quilts. Joanna specializes in reworking vintage patterns using simplified techniques, and teaches you new ways of creating four classic quilts: Spools, Wheels, Lifesavers and Lollipops. Repiece the past with her fresh take on quiltmaking!

"What a great class! Easily one of the best I have taken on Craftsy. Joanna is an excellent teacher, explaining techniques so clearly. She is very much at ease in front of the camera; I felt like she was talking just to me! Lovely designs, delicious fabrics, helpful tips, amazingly clear photo angles showing just what she was talking about... all leading to beautiful results. Thanks, Craftsy! This class is a winner!"
