Hi Boo, Ive only done 1 traditional quilt (log cabin) and then went into pattern free and contemporary quiltmaking. So this wasn`t too difficult for me. Coming from traditional patterns this class might not be the best to start with. Did you take a look at the classes by Elizabeth Hartman and Jacquie Gering? Maybe those classes would be a better start, cause both ladies are wonderful teachers and the classes are great!
