I REALLY like the class! I have 3 more of Joanna's quilts lined up to make. She's a good teacher and has some great tips and tricks. She focuses on using pre-cuts and there is not a lot of demonstration or instruction on basic quilt making so I probably wouldn't say a beginner should choose this as her first class. Joanna's patterns are easy to follow. I have more details about the construction of this quilt on my blog if you're interested. Thanks for the kind words!
