Craftsy Review: Improvisational Piecing

Super excited to review the craftsy classes I've bought or have in my profile. You can see the summary of classes I've reviewed here, Craftsy Class Review.

In this post, I'll review Improvisational Piecing, Modern Design 
with Jacquie Gering of Tallgrass Prairie Studio

What I learned - Everything for improv quilting.  Okay not everything in the whole world but wow this is a packed full class.  If you want to do a little improv...this is the class for you, just like the title implies.  I adore Jacquie and the way she presents information. I am a wee bit of a control freak and have a hard time just letting things flow.  This class is so helpful to ease me down the path of . . just let it go and feel it.  :)  It sounds hippy like. . but it's not. 

Teacher - Jacquie Gering is fantastic. I love the way she talks.  It feels as if she's talking JUST to me.  I adore it.  Jacquie is engaging super knowledgeable with this topic. And she is entertaining to watch. 

I'm kinda caught and I'll be sure to sign up for anything with Jacquie, if it's near me! 

Class Content - this is for multiple ideas for improvisational quilt tops.  Jacquie goes through multiple techniques.  These improvisational ideas can be used in all quilting, I think.  This is a PERFECT addition to any quilters arsenal. The techniques Jacquie presented are clear and helpful throughout quilting. I have the Quilting Modern book that Jacquie and Kate Petersen wrote but I am an audio and visual learner so this craftsy class is just up my alley. 

There are 9 lessons and it's just not enough (in a good way)!  I love the different ideas that Jacquie presents that are slowly being brought into my quilting.  Although I am still a precise HST kinda girl I'm now way more than able to try something new - even if it doesn't go anywhere.

RatingBlah - So So - Like - Love this class. 

I adore this class. Over the moon adore this class.  I would recommend this for any level quilter to find the ideas to play with different quilt ideas. The quality for the price is more than amazing, on sale or not. I would "buy" this again.

And in all reality, re-watch this class on a regular basis just to listen to Jacquie talk.  It's a great class to have on while I'm sewing.
